On Friday morning, Texas transfer Tre Mitchell signed his National Letter of Intent with West Virginia. Mitchell posted pictures from his visit to Morgantown on his Instagram.
Mitchell (6-foot-9, 240 pounds) averaged 8.7 points and 4.0 rebounds during his only season in Austin. In February, Mitchell took a leave of absence from the program for personal reasons, not returning to the team for the remainder of the season. The Pittsburgh native is a two-time All-Atlantic 10 Team recipient. Mitchell averaged 18.0 points and 7.2 rebounds in two seasons at Massachusetts.
Mitchell has two years of eligibility remaining and will need a waiver from the NCAA to become eligible for the 2022-23 season.
With the commitment from Mitchell, West Virginia is over the limit of scholarship players for the 2022-23 season, which means someone will have to give up their spot in order to make room for Mitchell.
