For the second year in a row VCU has lost a big man down the stretch as Terrance Shannon has left the team for personal reasons.

It's been a month where big men bolt Richmond as VCU's 6-8 big man Terrance Shannon has left the program for personal reasons according to multiple sources.

Shannon transferred from Florida State to play his last year at VCU and was thought to be one of the key contributors for the Rams this season during the preseason. Instead Shannon has found himself averaging just over 10 minutes per game and posting 2.9 points and 2.3 rebounds a night. Shannon started five of the Rams first six games but averaged just over four minutes per game in the Rams last five contests.

VCU had a similar situation last year when D.J. Haley left the Rams during conference play and eventually transferred to Southern California. VCU's rival Richmond just lost big man Derrick Williams for personal reasons as well.

Shannon is the ninth Ram to leave or transfer away in Shaka Smart's five year tenure at VCU.
