According to Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports, second year forward Jarred Reuter is departing the Virginia men’s basketball program.

Rothstein’s report has been echoed by ESPN’s Jeff Goodman and Rivals’ Brad Franklin.
Virginia’s Jarred Reuter will transfer, sources told ESPN. Averaged 3.8 points and 2.2 boards in a little more than 10 minutes per game.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) March 22, 2017
Sophomore forward Jarred Reuter will transfer from #UVa.— Brad Franklin (@Cavs_Corner) March 22, 2017
Reuter played in 32 games for the Cavaliers this season, averaging 3.8 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 10.8 minutes per game. With the departure of Austin Nichols, Reuter played more than probably expected going into the season, but struggled at times defensively. Jarred led the Cavaliers in shooting percentage from the floor, finishing the season making 58% of his attempts, but was turnover prone offensively.
Virginia fans can remember Reuter fondly for his 11 point performance last season against Cal that helped the Cavaliers stay in the game before halftime. The Hoos would go on to win that game on a London Perrantes buzzer-beater in overtime.
The Marion, MA native will have two years of eligibility remaining. After no off-season transfers after the 2015-2016 season, the Hoos will now have another open scholarship.
