Official: WVU F Tre Mitchell to Enter Transfer Portal



Tre Mitchell

WVU F Tre Mitchell will be entering his name into the transfer portal, first reported by Justin Jackson of the Dominion Post. Mitchell becomes the first Mountaineer to depart from West Virginia since head coach Bob Huggins resigned last weekend.

Mitchell (6-foot-9) appeared in all 34 games for West Virginia this past season. The Texas transfer averaged 11.7 points and 5.5 rebounds on 47 percent shooting from the field and 36 percent shooting from three. Mitchell was a consistent starter who helped return WVU to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2021. Mitchell skipped out on declaring for the NBA draft to return to West Virginia for his final year of eligibility but that changed with the coaching search looming.

Mitchell has one year of eligibility remaining.

Kentucky has been a team linked to Mitchell this week as the Wildcats are looking to complete their roster. John Calipari and his coaching staff have struggled to retool their roster through the transfer portal but do bring in the top high school class in the country.

West Virginia is looking to hire their first men’s basketball head coach since 2007. WVU is replacing Basketball Hall of Famer Huggins after he resigned on Saturday following a DUI.
