La Salle University announced on Wednesday that Tyrone Garland had transfered to play basketball. The former Virginia Tech guard is the third all-time leading scorer in Philadelphia Public League history

According to La Salle, Garland will sit out a year due to NCAA transfer rules and be eligible to play following the conclusion of the fall 2012 semester. He will have two years of eligibility remaining.

“We recruited Tyrone extremely hard out of high school,” Giannini said. “He is known as a scorer and can also be a very good passer and defender. He is the type of all-around guard, talent and person that will make our team better. He gives us an experienced player to continue our growth over the next two years. With his addition we will have tremendous team quickness and depth.”

 Garland (6-foot-1, 180 pounds) is third behind Maureece Rice (2,681) and Wilt Chamberlain (2,206) with 2,198 career points after playing for John Bartram High School. A two-time first team Class AAAA All-State selection, he averaged 28.5 ppg. as a junior and 25.1 ppg. as a senior.

Garland averaged 4.6 ppg. this season for the Hokies, including a career-high 18 points against Monmouth.  His previous career high was 16 points against Mount St. Mary’s as a freshman.

 Garland was also named to the ACC All-Academic team at Virginia Tech.
