Things could get interesting as former West Virginia forward Emmitt Matthews Jr. entered the transfer portal on Monday evening. Matthews played this past season at Washington after three years at WVU.

During his sole year at Washington, Matthews averaged 11.7 points and 4.7 rebounds. The Tacoma, Wa., native shot 43 percent from the field, 34 percent from three and 76 percent from the free-throw line. Matthews played 92 games for West Virginia, helping the Mountaineers reach the 2021 NCAA Tournament, earning a 3-seed.

Matthews will have one year of eligibility remaining. WV Sports Now will keep up to date with the latest recruiting and transfer portal news during the offseason.
