Maurice Kirby to Transfer

Rumors are swirling that Maurice Kirby, a 6’9″ member of the Class of 2013 who redshirted this past season, is going to transfer.

While I try to avoid speaking negatively about the talent level of Hokies, I will say this — I wouldn’t sweat this one too much.  To put it as straight-forward as possible — he redshirted on a team that finished dead last in the ACC.  His high school numbers weren’t overly impressive, either. 

I never heard a negative thing about his character, so I wish him all the best and hopefully he does catch lightning in a bottle and proves my negatism wrong.  Good luck, Kirby.

During the final home basketball game of his senior year, he was brought onto the court and was awarded 2 passes to the Atlantic 10 Basketball Tournament in Philly during a timeout for being a "Super Fan" during his time at VT. The Hokie Bird made the award on behalf of Athletic Director Jim Weaver. Niemo was known to be in the front row of every home game with his familiar red afro hairdo.

    He’s transferring to a community college. I’m not sweating this one out either.

    That being said, I wish him all the luck in the world and I hope to see him do very well there. If he has a big year, he will definitely be on the radar of Div 1 schools and could re-establish himself as a prospect. I hope he does; by all accounts, he has good character. Best of luck to him.
