CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Virginia sophomore guard Casey Morsell has entered his name into the NCAA Transfer Portal.

The portal is designed to make it easier for players to find a new program, and vice versa, once a decision to transfer has been made.

A player is able with withdraw their name at anytime, though Morsell appeared committed to leaving in a tweet he sent on Thursday evening.

Morsell averaged 4.4 points per game in 2021, while averaging 14.8 minutes per contest, and he started three games.

The former 4-star prospect started 13-of-30 games as a freshman in 2019-20, and he was the first true freshman at UVA to earn a starting nod in the season opener since 2012.

Morsell scored a career-high 19 points against Arizona State in the title match of the Air Force Reserve Tournament in 2019.

As a high school star at St. John’s College High School, Morsell was named the 2019 Gatorade Player of the Year and USA Today Player of the Year for Washington, D.C.
