Texas transfer G Courtney Ramey announced on Friday that he will transfer to Arizona for his final season of college basketball.

Ramey was down to Arizona and WVU, sources told WV Sports Now. WVU’s coaching staff went head-to-head with some great recruiters and just fell short of landing Ramey.

Ramey (6-foot-3, 185 pounds) exited the NBA draft on June 1. West Virginia’s coaching staff first made contact with Ramey on April 7.

Ramey averaged 9.4 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.0 steals last season for Chris Beard. Ramey played three seasons under Shaka Smart and one under Beard, appearing in 128 career games for the Longhorns. The St. Louis native shot 40 percent from the field and 35 percent from three. The ex-Longhorn played WVU eight times, averaging 14.9 points against the Mountaineers.

Ramey has one year of eligibility left.

West Virginia is now officially done with their recruitment of the transfer portal. WVU’s coaching staff was able to land Erik Stevenson (South Carolina), Joe Toussaint (Iowa), Emmitt Matthews (Washington) and Tre Mitchell (Texas) from the transfer portal.

West Virginia is over the limit of scholarship players for the 2022-23 season, which means one player will have to give up their spot in order to make room for Mitchell. Incoming freshman Josiah Davis has not enrolled at WVU still.

WV Sports Now will keep up to date with the latest recruiting and transfer portal news during the offseason.
