The West Virginia men’s basketball program once again attacks the Junior College field, this time securing former Robert Morris player Patrick Suemnick.
Suemnick made the announcement on his Twitter, Wednesday night.

Suemnick took zero time to wait. The 6-foot-8, 225-pound forward was offered a scholarship on Tuesday and visited campus this week. Suemnick will join verbal commits Josiah Harris and Josiah Davis in the 2022 class, as he plans on signing his letter of intent in November.
Suemnick also had an offer from Texas A&M, according to 247Sports.
Suemnick played one season at Robert Morris under long-time head coach Andrew Toole. The Green Bay, Wisconsin, native appeared in 16 games for the Colonials, averaging 2.4 points, 1.6 rebounds and 8.4 minutes. Suemnick entered the transfer portal in April to search for more playing time, reports say.
Just in half-a-year, the Mountaineers have picked up their sixth new player. This season, Bob Huggins and the coaching staff went looking for replacements for the departing Miles McBride and Derek Culver. The staff received commitments from three grad transfer players in Malik Curry (Old Dominion), Dimon Carrigan (Florida International) and Pauly Paulicap (DePaul).
