Virginia Tech junior center Taylor Ayers will transfer at the end of the semester and is no longer on the team, the school announced Tuesday.
The move leaves the Hokies with just eight scholarship players and three walk-ons.
The 6-2 Ayers, an Augusta, Ga. native, averaged 13.8 minutes, 2.3 points and 2.5 rebounds through six games, down from her totals of 4.1 points and 4.0 rebounds last season in roughly the same amount of playing time (14.0 minutes).
Ayers will be the second Tech player to transfer since the team's head coaching change in March. Guard Kyani White, who played for the Hokies as a freshman last season, is now at East Carolina.
