Former West Virginia G Sean McNeil Commits to Ohio State



On Sunday evening, West Virginia transfer Sean McNeil committed to Ohio State. McNeil will play one season in Columbus for the Buckeyes.

The former Mountaineer made it official on his Instagram page.

McNeil picked Ohio State over Cincinnati, Indiana, Louisville, Texas Tech and Virginia. McNeil visited Cincinnati and Indiana this past week.

McNeil spent three seasons at West Virginia from 2019-22. The Union, KY, native scored 900 points in 89 career games for the Mountaineers. McNeil was a key piece to the 2021 NCAA Tournament team that earned a 3-seed, advancing to the round of 32. McNeil averaged 12.2 points during his senior campaign, shooting 37 percent from three.

McNeil entered the transfer portal on March 28, leaving WVU after three seasons.

“First off, I want to say thank you to coach Huggins and the entire West Virginia staff. You all took a chance on me from Junior College and gave me an opportunity and I am forever grateful for that. To Mountaineer nation, I appreciate you being by mine and the team’s side every step of the way whether we won or lost. My time at West Virginia and the memories I’ve made will hold a special place in my heart for the rest of my life. After much thought and consideration, I have decided it is in my best interest to enter the transfer portal, McNeil wrote in a tweet,” McNeil said in a statement.
