Former UConn women’s basketball forward Mir McLean has a new home.

McLean’s mother, Ayanna, posted Friday on Twitter that Mir has committed to the University of Virginia.

The 5 foot 11 sophomore forward from Baltimore announced her decision to transfer from UConn earlier this month. Because she departed Storrs midseason, she will not be eligible to play at Virginia until the fall of 2022.

Mir was the second Husky to transfer, joining 6-2 freshman guard Saylor Poffenbarger, who has since committed to Arkansas.

Mir recorded just eight minutes of playing time in three appearances for the Huskies, going scoreless and collecting two rebounds. She played more as a freshman, averaging 2.8 points and 2.1 rebounds in 24 games.
