Breaking: Arizona Transfer Guard Kerr Kriisa Commits to WVU
West Virginia picked up another guard for the 2023-24 season as Kerr Kriisa announced on Wednesday that he will transfer from Arizona to WVU.
“Yes, I know the song by heart,” Kriisa wrote on Instagram.
Kriisa visited West Virginia from March 25-27 while visiting Nebraska right after. WVU contacted Kriisa immediately after he entered the portal on March 22. Xavier and Creighton were also in the mix, a source told WVSN.
Kriisa (6-foot-3) leaves Arizona after three seasons, serving as a full-time starter the last two years under Tommy Lloyd. Kriisa, a native of Estonia, averaged 9.9 points, 2.4 rebounds and 5.1 assists this past season. Kriisa was second in the Pac-12 in assists and also shot 37 percent from three. Kriisa has appeared in the last two NCAA Tournaments for Arizona, reaching the Sweet-16 last year.
Kriisa has two years of eligibility remaining.
West Virginia’s staff made it clear that Kriisa was a priority this month to pick him up from the transfer portal. Kriisa will join a current group of guards with Joe Toussaint, Jose Perez, Omar Silverio, Kobe Johnson and Seth Wilson. Toussaint still has the option to return next season while Perez has already made that decision.
