Memphis transfer schedules VCU visit

<a href="" rel="attachment wp-att-17488"><img class="alignright wp-image-17488 size-medium" src="" alt="Woodson" width="223" height="300" /></a>CBS analyst Jon Rothstein is reporting Memphis Tigers grad transfer Avery Woodson will visit VCU this Thursday followed by a trip to Butler on Saturday.

Woodson spent two seasons at Memphis after a year at East Mississippi Community College and as a graduate transfer would be immediately eligible to play at VCU next season.

While at Memphis Woodson connected on over 40.5% of his 341 three-point attempts, finishing this past season at a 43% mark including an impressive 45.5% in AAC conference play. He averaged 9.6 points this past season and finished with a true shooting percentage of 59.7%, which would've ranked fourth on VCU's team behind Mo Alie-Cox (65%), Justin Tillman (60.2%) and JeQuan Lewis (59.8%) -- all of whom return to what could be a very talented 2016-17 Rams squad.

The 6'2 Waynesboro, Mississippi native announced his release a week ago and has been a hot name ever since and has reportedly seen interest from the likes of VCU, Butler, Alabama, Georgia, Miami and UNLV.
