MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — WVU announced on Friday that junior guard Terry Henderson has asked for his release and plans to transfer out of the program.

“We have enjoyed Terry and his contributions to Mountaineer basketball,” WVU head coach Bob Huggins said in a release. “We wish him the best in his future endeavors.”

Henderson’s departure is the second high-profile transfer for the Mountaineers this offseason following the loss of Eron Harris.

Henderson averaged 11.7 points per game this past season with West Virginia and would have been a key returning piece heading into the 2014-2015 year.
