not really a surprise. Link to story ...
Harrell, who made frequent visits to campus to watch games during the last several months, said the decision was finalized on Monday.
He loves what their coach is doing with the program (26-36 in two years) and he just wants to win, so why not go to a team that was below .500, has been over .500 twice since 2003, and is on the heels of a point shaving scandal...this is just confusing.
Good thing he sat out a whole semester, instead of I don't know, playing and practicing. Paul Jesperson sends his best regards KT.
When the going gets tough, the tough get going and the weak get going too...to another school.
Who the eff is K.T.? Sounds like a feminine hygene product.

Glad he has saved up to "give it his all" for someone else
I wish nothing but anonymity for KT, though I do feel kinda bad pissing vinegar his direction while at the same time pining for transfers from other schools into our own program. I know it's all about timing, KT quit on the team at midseason while the kids we're looking at now waited until the end of the season, but it feels close enough to hypocrisy for me to not want to touch it.
At the end of the day I just chalk it up the fact that KT wasn't made of stern enough stuff to hack it at UVA for whatever reason, and short of wishing him well, I'll just wish for him to fade away.
I agree this is a very confusing move. Some of the other comments on this thread show the frustration some of us are feeling with his decision as well. It seems to me this does not boil down to wanting to win or liking the coach. It must be almost purely motivated by playing time, and the desire to showcase his talents by being a major player on a team, regardless of their record.
I wish him the best, despite the fact his decision left us short-handed. We should all remember that most of us were VERY excited to have him commit to us, and there should be no reason to personally disparage this young man. He and his family made the best decision they thought at the time. In hindsight, maybe it doesn't seem so great, but I harbor no ill will to him. Good luck KT Harrell.
I hate to see him transfer but I don't find it that puzzling..the kid clearly wanted to go home
I now officially have a new least favorite SEC program.

Its all about timing. He left this team in the lurch and for what? To sit out another whole year? Just selfish. At least Johnson transferred in somewhere mid year.
The impression KT is giving with his actions and comments is it is all about KT. Given that and the way he let his former teammates down we are far better off without him. I will spend zero time following his career. He turned his back on his team, he deserves the same from us.
I hope he finds whatever it is he is looking for there.
Will always remember him as a quitter
I must break you!
Despite all the comments in this thread I hope KT does well there. I know he pretty much screwed this team over, but at the same time he is a 18 or 19 year old kid that made a decision that was best for him. As a fan of UVA that kills me, but as a person I realize college is supposed to be the time of your life. If he wasn't enjoying it at UVA than I hope he enjoys it at Auburn.
I doubt I'll always remember him.
For all I know or care, he's going down to live in a swampside shack with Jermaine Harper and J.C. Mathis, baking cakes with files in them for Keith enifer.
And yet you apparently remember them ...
Who could ever forget the quad pump fake...then still get your shot stuffed
+ + + + + = Ian watching basketball games during the Gillen regime.
Seems like the kid was homesick. That, and he probably saw a better opportunity to showcase his skills as opposed to here - not sure why? The stand-up thing to do would have been to play the year out. He chose not to, which really screwed over his teamates. I also think Tony let people know that if they didn't want to be here, "see ya".
Good riddance....I personally don't want to wish ill-will on anyone, but I don't have to wish success either....and so I hope nothing successful happens with him basketball-wise. You quit on your teammates, coach, university, and fans when they needed you the most. I hope someday, if you already haven't, that you will realize what you did and you feel nothing but guilt and shame from it.
