Jeremiah Bembry Brings Guard Length and Depth to WVU



Jeremiah Bembry

WVU interim head coach Josh Eilert picked up his first addition since taking over the reins of the program. Florida State transfer guard Jeremiah Bembry committed to West Virginia on Sunday afternoon.

Bembry has four years of eligibility left after being medically redshirted with an undisclosed injury during his freshman year at FSU. With a lot of unknowns as regards to his play style, what can Bembry bring to the table?

Bembry is a 6-foot-6 point guard who came into Leonard Hamilton’s program as a three-star high school prospect. Bembry was recruited by Columbia, Detroit Mercy, Georgia Tech, Howard, Lehigh, LSU, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Oregon State, Penn, Rutgers, Seton Hall, Temple, UC Santa Barbra and others. Bembry played at Executive Education Academy in Allentown, PA. and averaged 13.7 points, 7.0 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 2.0 blocked shots per game.

Bembry can be a versatile player either handling the ball or posting up with his size. Bembry can control the ball and has a reliable shot. Bembry’s go-to is driving into the lane and finishing at the rim. Bembry’s length will definitely be a positive in WVU’s backcourt.

Bembry joins a group of Kerr Kriisa, RaeQuan Battle, Omar Silverio, Kobe Johnson and Seth Wilson at the guard positions. Bembry will likely play backup to Kriisa at the point guard position but could possibly be involved with WVU playing small next season. WVU will need some of these guards to play the three. Johnson was moved to a combo position by Bob Huggins last year and could see more facilitating now with fewer ball handlers.
