Temple has not received Pepper's transfer papers


Folks close to the situation think everyone should push the pause button on Dalton Pepper’s expected transfer.

It has been reported by numerous publications that the sophomore swingman plans to leave West Virginia for Temple. Pepper even reportedly sent text messages Monday night to and the Bucks County Courier Times confirming he’s transferring to be close to his father Jack, who is ill.

But a Temple official said Tuesday that the Owls have not received transfer papers for the 6-foot-5, 230-pound swingman. Frank Sciolla, who coached Pepper at Pennsbury High, acknowledged via a text message that something could happen. It just hasn’t happened yet.

“Once Dalton officially asks for and RECIEVES his release from WVU, I will call you and comment,” Sciolla wrote. “Until then, it is just internet chatter.

“I hope that it happens soon.”

Pepper did not return The Inquirer’s phone calls and text messages.
