Joe Toussaint thanked Iowa, West Virginia and Texas Tech in a social media post, as he looks to begin a professional career in basketball. Toussaint spent three years at Iowa, one year at WVU and one year at TTU.

“To ending my college career, I am filled with an overwhelming sense of gratitude and blessing. To have had the opportunity to play basketball at the University of Iowa, West Virginia University, and Texas Tech University has been nothing short of a dream come true.

“Firstly, I want to express my deepest gratitude to the coaches, teammates, and staff at each of these institutions. Their support, guidance, and belief in my abilities have been instrumental in shaping me not only as a player but as a person. Each university holds a special place in my heart, and I am forever grateful for the experiences and memories forged on the court and beyond. The journey to this moment has been filled with challenges and triumphs, but through it all, I have remained steadfast in my pursuit of excellence. I acknowledge the blessings bestowed upon me, for I am aware that none of this would have been possible without the grace of God and the unwavering support of my family and loved ones.

“As I look ahead to the next chapter of my journey, I am filled with excitement and anticipation. The dream of playing in the NBA has been a driving force behind every early morning practice, every late-night workout, and every sacrifice made along the way. I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to pursue this dream, and I will approach it with the same level of dedication, determination, and passion that has brought mo to this point.

“In closing, I want to express my deepest appreciation to the fans who have cheered me on from the stands, the communities that have embraced mo as one of their own, and the countless individuals who have played a role, however small, in shaping my journey. I am truly blessed beyond measure, and I will carry the lessons learned and memories made with me for a lifetime. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for allowing me to live out my dreams on the hardwood.

“The best is yet to come.”

Toussaint upped his numbers under Grant McCasland, averaging 12.1 points, 2.6 rebounds and 4.3 assists for the Red Raiders during his final season of college basketball. Toussaint originally planned on playing for the Mountaineers this past season, but that all changed after Bob Huggins’ resignation last June.

Toussaint returned to Morgantown to play West Virginia towards the end of the regular season. The 6-foot guard talked after the game about all that went down and why he left WVU.
