Emelogu will transfer to SMU, ESPN's Jeff Goodman reports.
Emelogu announced his intent to transfer last month, and the Grand Prairie, TX native has selected a school much closer to home. Virginia Tech's decision to hire Buzz Williams apparently did not factor into Emelogu's decision. As a freshman last season, Emelogu averaged 10.5 points per game while shooting 37 percent from deep. He'll sit out the 2014-15 season, per NCAA transfer rules, before regaining eligibility in 2015-16.
