Former West Virginia forward Isaiah Cottrell told WV Sports Now that 15 schools have reached out to him already.

Cottrell said that Arizona State, Arkansas, Butler, BYU, Loyola Chicago, Loyola Marymount, Montana, Ole Miss, Penn State, Seton Hall, Southern Illinois, St. John’s, Texas Tech, Utah, and UNLV have all contacted the former Mountaineer.

Cottrell announced on Wednesday that he would enter his name into the transfer portal. The specific reason has not been noted, but it appears Cottrell was irritated about playing out of position. Cottrell played center the entire season, where his natural position is at the four.

“Y’all really don’t understand and never will,” Cottrell said on Twitter.

The Las Vegas native spent two seasons at West Virginia, starting the majority of his second year at the center position. In 33 games this past season, the Las Vegas native averaged 4.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 0.7 blocks. Cottrell shot 34 percent from the field and 31 percent from three.

Cottrell will have three years of eligibility remaining.
