You guys started commenting on it as I was in meetings and en route the ballpark — and David Teel had it first among scribes, I’m pretty sure — but Berman has also confirmed that Dorian Finney-Smith has requested his transfer from Virginia Tech. I’ll post a link to Berman’s story when it’s up; I know he’s been making calls on it. (Update: Here it is.)
Finney-Smith was the highest rated recruit of last year’s freshman class and, while inconsistent as youngsters are known to be, showed flashes of great promise. Big loss for new coach James Johnson, who was hired in large part because of the continuity he could bring.
