Breaking: NCAA Denies RaeQuan Battle of Immediate Eligibility



RaeQuan Battle West Virginia

The NCAA has denied transfer guard RaeQuan Battle of immediate eligibility, West Virginia’s basketball program announced on Monday. West Virginia will appeal the decision.

Battle has transferred multiple times as an undergraduate student-athlete and is not a grad transfer after his summer session. The NCAA recently has started to crack down on waivers from transfers, no matter the situation. Battle transferred from Montana State this April after averaging 17.7 points on 47% shooting for the Bobcats. Battle led Montana State to the NCAA Tournament, giving 3-seed Kansas State a game in the first round. Battle and the Bobcats fell short but the current Mountaineer scored a game-high 27 points.

The 6-foot-5 guard committed to West Virginia under former HC Bob Huggins back in April. This was the second time that Battle transferred as he originally started his career at Washington.

For now, Battle will have to sit out this season and can play during the 2024-25 year.
