Joe Toussaint Signs National Letter of Intent to West Virginia



West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins announced on Thursday morning the signing of Iowa transfer Joe Toussaint. Toussaint has signed his National Letter of Intent to West Virginia.

“Joe is a really good defender who can handle and pass the ball extremely well. He is really good in transition, and what we didn’t have last year in putting pressure on the ball, he will help fix that,” Huggins said. “He’s a hard-nosed, tough guard who is experienced, playing in almost 100 career games. I know our guys will certainly enjoy playing with him, and our fans will enjoy watching him compete.”

Toussaint (6-foot, 190 pounds) committed to WVU on Monday after visiting Morgantown last weekend. Toussaint spent three seasons at Iowa under head coach Fran McCaffery, appearing in 98 games for the Hawkeyes. The Bronx, NY, native averaged 4.3 points, 1.7 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.4 steals per game. Toussaint had a 2.3 assist to turnover ratio this past season. Toussaint shot 42 percent from the field, 25 percent from three and 83 percent from the free-throw line.

After visiting Morgantown over the weekend, Toussaint wasted no time. Toussaint will have two years of eligibility remaining.

West Virginia has two scholarships remaining for the 2022-23 season.
