Any Information on Darius Thompson?

I have watched some of the Virginia game today, and I haven't seen him get any minutes. I hated to see him transfer, but I really hoped he would be successful at his new school. Does anyone have any inside scoop on the middle Tennessee prospect?

I thought he was going to be a beast here. He's court vision was outstanding as a freshman but since he transferred I haven't kept up with him

Have minutes have been in decline over the last 5 weeks or so. His point production has been bad this year.

I've not heard his name called in this Syracuse game, but I'm not paying close attention.

It's odd that he started EVERY game through December and NONE OV them in 2017. I wonder if somebody became eligible on 1/1/17?

Glad he's gone. Barnes is too tough for him to play for and we are better off.

I didn't like that he left. But his Dad is a coach and probably gave him some sound advice to get the hell out since Donnie was coming in.

He could have made a difference getting to the NIT the last two years.

Would have been nice for Josh and Punter to play off the ball for sure.

I work at UVA, and being a Vol alum, I've been following him pretty closely. His minutes are down a bit this year, 10-15 a game. Still productive and has a few highlight reel plays, but UVA has several very good freshman that split minutes with him. If you watched the Syracuse game today, you might have seen Jerome, Guy, and Diakite all in the floor at the same time- all true freshmen. I have a feeling Guy and Jerome will pass him on the depth chart quickly- they're both putting up some good numbers and play the same position as Darius. UVA is very good, and young (1 senior), it'll be tough to get additional minutes.

Agree. Overrated IMO. Not by recruiting services, but by the hype he gets from some VN folk.

wouldn't be surprised to see him grad transfer somewhere.

In my opinion, it seemed like when he went to UVA he really bulked up in a move to not play the point. If he would have stayed, I think he would have done really well under Barnes. He has never really been a scorer, and his strength was running an offense and distributing. Granted, we don't have any dynamic scorers to distribute to right now....

Yep, played pretty well too. 10 pts, 20 minutes, good energy. UVA doesn't run much, but DT is one of the more exciting players on the team.
