Marcus Santos-Silva announces departure from VCU

VCU forward Marcus Santos-Silva has announced through social media on Monday that he will be transferring from VCU. His departure comes after a recent announcement that he would be entering himself as a NBA draft candidate without an agent. It now appears that he will use his extra year of NCAA eligibility elsewhere.

<a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/B_OR052pkQJ/">In a post</a> on his Instagram account, he said "My decision has nothing to do with the team or coaches, they're always going to be family to me" ... "I'm just doing what I feel is the best option and decision for my future."

Santos-Silva was VCU’s leading scorer last season (18-13) where he averaged 12.8 points and 8.9 rebounds per game.

VCU announced yesterday an addition to the roster with the landing of 7’1 transfer Brendan Medley-Bacon, <a href="https://www.vcuramnation.com/2020/04/rams-land-71-transfer-big-brendan-medley-bacon/">you can read about him here</a>. Unless he is waived, Medley-Bacon would have to sit out 1 year due to NCAA requirements.
<p style="text-align: left;">VCU will now have an additional roster spot to fill this offseason as it looks to replace a significant contributor from the 2019-2020 season.
