Thompson Transfers to UVa

Darius Thompson

Virginia basketball ends its search by landing Tennessee rising sophomore guard Darius Thompson after his visit to UVa.

Darius Thompson visited UVa the last two days, and it seems like the visit sealed the deal. According to Jeff Washburn, from Boiler Sports Report, the point guard chose to commit to Virginia over Purdue on Tuesday night.

The 6-foot-5, 181 pounder led Tennessee in steals, shooting 74 percent from the charity stripes and under 20 percent from the outside.

Thompson will now sit out next season due to transfer rules.
