In 32 games played as a freshman, P.J. averaged 9.2 minutes per game, while putting up 1.2 ppg and 1.1 apg in that span.
He will have 3 years of eligibility but will be required to sit out 1 year due to NCAA transfer requirements.
VCU will need to either look for a transfer to back up senior PG Marcus Evans, or will rely heavily on incoming freshman PG Tre Clarke.
