Drake transfer guard Atin Wright will begin a visit to West Virginia on Friday, he tells The Portal Report and WV Sports Now. Wright does not have any other visits scheduled after the dead period at the moment.

Wright joins a group of Conor Enright (Drake – G) and Toby Okani (F – UIC) as the confirmed visitors for WVU this upcoming weekend.

Wright, a 6-foot-1 guard, is entering his fifth season of college basketball, with one year of eligibility remaining with the COVID year option.

Wright averaged 14.1 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.1 steals in 35 games for the Bulldogs this past season. Wright was the second-leading scorer for Drake behind Tucker DeVries. Wright shot 46% from the field and 41% from three. The Lakewood, Ca. native scored 20 or more points nine times this season, capping off the year with a 20-point performance in the NCAA Tournament vs. Washington State.

Wright has heard from Arkansas, Cal, Florida, Mississippi State, Nevada, Ole Miss, Stanford, UCF, USC, Virginia, Virginia Tech, West Virginia and others since entering the transfer portal.

WVU has landed one transfer commitment in Tucker DeVries so far this offseason losing Josiah Harris (F), Seth Wilson (G), Patrick Suemnick (F) and Kerr Kriisa (G) so far.
