Eron Harris has decided to make his way home and be closer to his family after deciding to transfer from the West Virginia University. 

The college basketball player sought a release from West Virginia for personal reasons and the request was accepted by the university in good faith. 

The move will see the team lose one of its major contributors, as he was their second top points scorer with 17.2 points per game

A native of Indianapolis, the sophomore was one of the team's key men playing at the guard position. 

It's understood that one of the reasons the request was accepted sharply was because of head coach Bob Huggins previous experiences with transferring. 

Huggins moved from Ohio University to West Virginia as a player in the 1970's and he was said to have had a feeling of empathy for Harris. 

The second year man had a successful second season with the Mountaineers as he improved on a rookie season in which he scored only 9.8 points per game.
