Trevon Gross Jr. and Justice Bartley, the Virginia basketball team’s two walk-ons last season that ended the season as scholarship athletes, have both have found new homes after opting to transfer.

Monmouth announced on Wednesday that Gross will be a member of its basketball team. Earlier in the offseason, Bartley announced his transfer to Maryland Eastern Shore.

Both are Division I programs.

As a graduate student, Bartley will be immediately eligible after graduating from UVa. Gross, who also will be a graduate transfer, will be playing closer to home. Gross’ hometown is Jackson, New Jersey, which is 30 minutes from Monmouth’s campus.

It’s unclear if either player is on scholarship at their respective schools.

Neither Bartley nor Gross received significant playing time at Virginia. Gross scored just seven points over two seasons throughout 21 games — joining the team as a sophomore after being a manager as a freshman. Bartley scored nine points over 28 games in his UVa career.

Monmouth participates in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. Maryland Eastern Shore is part of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, and will play this season at Virginia Tech.
