Jarrod West, a Clarksburg native who spent four seasons playing college basketball at Marshall, has announced he plans to transfer to Louisville to finish his remaining eligibility — committing to the Cardinals over his other finalists Pitt and Ohio State.

West, who won the Bill Evans Award as the top boys high school basketball player in West Virginia as a senior at Notre Dame High in Clarksburg, leaves MU as the school’s all-time leader in steals. As a freshman with the Thundering Herd, he came off the bench for the Marshall team that won the Conference USA tournament then went on to collect the program’s first and only NCAA Tournament win in a first-round upset of Wichita State.

In his final season at Marshall, West — listed at 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds — averaged 12.5 points per game to go with 6 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 steals averages. He shot a career-best 45.8 percent from the field and 40.8 percent from 3-point range. His assists and steals per game averages both led Conference USA.
