Former WVU F Mohamed Wague Transfers to Oklahoma



Mohamed Wague

Former WVU forward Mohamed Wague is transferring from Alabama to Oklahoma, he told On3 Sports on Tuesday afternoon. Wague is joining his fourth school with one year of eligibility remaining.

Before entering the transfer portal on April 23, Wague spent one season at Alabama under Nate Oats, being a part of the Crimson Tide’s Final Four run. The 6-foot-10 forward averaged 3.1 points and 2.5 rebounds in 33 games this past season.

Wague transferred out of West Virginia following Bob Huggins’ resignation back in June. WVU players were given an extra 30-day window to enter the transfer portal and Wague explored his options while West Virginia was deciding on a head coach. Wague received a lot of Power-5 interest while visiting Alabama and Kansas State during his recruitment.

Wague spent the 2022-2023 season as a Mountaineer after beginning his college career at Harcum College in Pennsylvania. He appeared in 28 games, averaging 4.1 points per game, 3.1 rebounds per game and shooting 74% from the floor. Wague’s season was cut short the final month of the year after suffering a foot injury.

Oklahoma will join the SEC this summer, leaving the Big 12 with Texas. West Virginia may have the chance to play against Wague and the Sooners during the Battle 4 Atlantis this November.
