Marshall Senior PG, All-Time Steals Leader Jarrod West Enters NCAA Transfer Portal

Jarrod West is moving on from Marshall.

West, a senior point guard who is MU’s all-time steals leader, wants to test himself at a Power 5 school, according to Marshall coach Dan D’Antoni in an HD Media report. With the NCAA granting an extra year of eligibility to all players, West can still play one more collegiate season.

The Clarksburg native averaged 12.5 points, six assists and 2.5 steals per game this season for the Thundering Herd and finished his career in Huntington with 1,204 points.

Marshall went 80-47 during West’s four years on campus, including a run to the 2018 Conference USA tournament championship and an upset win against Wichita State in the NCAA tournament during his freshman season.

West played in high school for his father (also named Jarrod, himself a standout name in West Virginia University basketball lore) at Clarksburg’s Notre Dame High School — where as a senior the younger West led the Irish to a Class A state championship and was named the Bill Evans Award winner as the top high school boys basketball player in West Virginia.

Despite losing West to the transfer portal, Marshall will return the bulk of its senior class for next season. WSAZ’s Keith Morehouse reported Monday that Jannson Williams, Mikel Beyers and Darius George plan to return to MU next season.
