Courtney Ramey to Decide Between West Virginia and Arizona

Sources told WV Sports Now on Monday night that Texas transfer G Courtney Ramey is deciding between West Virginia and Arizona.

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.

Over the past week, Ramey has received serious interest from Arizona, Duke, Houston, Illinois, Kansas State, Louisville, Purdue, West Virginia and others. With 2023 Duke commit Tyrese Proctor reclassifying to 2022 and Houston guard Marcus Sasser returning to school, Ramey has been able to narrow down his options.

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.
