Kerr Kriisa, former West Virginia guard, thanked WVU for his time over the past year. Kriisa entered the transfer portal on Tuesday afternoon with one year of eligibility.

Kriisa released the following on his Instagram.

“Thank you to the people of Morgantown for making this past season special. Although it was a difficult season, I have grown more as a player and man than I have in any other year. Thank you to the WV staff for believing in me and helping me to grow my game. To my teammates, who banded together as we attempted to navigate this wild season, I thank you for this year, we are brothers for life. The WVU fanbase deserves more than we could give them, and I will always love the wonderful people of West Virginia. I wish Coach [Darian] DeVries and the Mountaineers all the best going forward. With all that said, I have entered the transfer portal and look forward to the season ahead.”

Kriisa averaged 11.0 points, 2.5 rebounds and 4.7 assists in 23 games for the Mountaineers this past season. The Estonian native shot 43% from the field and 42% from three. The 6-foot-3 guard was suspended for the first nine games of the season after receiving impermissible benefits while at Arizona.

Kriisa committed to WVU last April under head coach Bob Huggins. Once Huggins resigned, Kriisa re-entered the transfer portal before exiting to commit to interim HC Josh Eilert.

Kriisa is the second Mountaineer to enter the transfer portal this spring, joining Seth Wilson in reopening his recruitment.
