Kerry Blackshear Jr. is leaving Virginia Tech as a graduate transfer and headed to the SEC.

Multiple reporters said on Wednesday that Blackshear is transferring toFlorida.

Blackshear averaged 14.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game for the Hokies last season, while shooting 50.8 percent from the field. He announced he was entering the draft in April but withdrew his name and decided to transfer as a graduate instead so he could be eligible immediately.
