Virginia Tech transfer Khadim Sy will attend Tallahassee Community College next season, sources told FanRag Sports.

Sy has two years of eligibility remaining.

The 6-foot-10 forward would not elaborate on why he was leaving Virginia Tech.

As a freshman last season, Sy played in 32 games and made 28 starts, averaging four points and 2.7 rebounds in 11.4 minutes per game while shooting 56.7 percent from the floor and 59.3 percent from the free-throw line.

Per 40 minutes, Sy had numbers of 14 points, 9.5 boards and 2.2 blocks per game.

The Senegal native, who attended Oak Hill Academy, also ranked second on Virginia Tech with 20 blocked shots in spite of such limited playing time overall.

Sy was expected to be the backup to Kerry Blackshear this coming season for the Hokies.

Virginia Tech went 22-11 and made it to the NCAA Tournament last season for the first time since the 2006-07 campaign. They were knocked out of the first round.

Overall, the Hokies have made just two NCAA Tournament appearances since the 1996-97 season.

Virginia Tech has posted back-to-back winning seasons after enduring four straight losing years and three head coaches.

Buzz Williams took over in 2014-15, and after going just 11-22 in his first year, has helped turn the program around.
