Breaking: WVU Receives Transfer Commitment from Scoring Guard RaeQuan Battle



RaeQuan Battle

West Virginia has received a commitment from Montana State transfer guard RaeQuan Battle on Wednesday afternoon, per his Instagram. Battle becomes the fifth transfer for WVU’s offseason class.

West Virginia’s staff reached out to Battle on Thursday, wasting no time getting him on campus last weekend. Battle received interest from many other Power-5 programs including Alabama, Arizona, Cal, Clemson, Louisville, Kansas, Kansas State, LSU, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Texas Tech, UCF, UCLA, Wake Forest, Washington and others. 

Battle (6-foot-5) entered the transfer portal this week, leaving Montana State after two years. Battle began his collegiate career at Washington. Battle started in all 35 games this past season, averaging 17.7 points on 47 percent shooting from the field, 35 percent from three and 83 percent from the free throw line. The Tulip, Wa. native scored 27 points against Kansas State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Battle was named to the All-Big Sky First Team during his senior year.

Battle did play with former WVU G Erik Stevenson during his time at Washington and has a connection with Emmitt Matthews as well.

Along with Battle, West Virginia currently has transfer commitments from Jesse Edwards (C – Syracuse), Kerr Kriisa (G – Arizona), Jose Perez (G – Manhattan) and Omar Silverio (G – Manhattan).
