West Virginia has completely flipped its entire roster, only retaining rising sophomore Ofri Naveh. First-year WVU HC Darian DeVries and his staff have brought in seven players from the transfer portal, including top-30 transfers Tucker DeVries (Drake) and Javon Small (Oklahoma State). On3 Sports has the Mountaineers at No. 2 in the country with their transfer class.

Louisville is the only school On3 has over West Virginia under new head coach Pat Kelsey, who also has flipped the Cardinals roster during his first offseason. West Virginia is the only team in the Big 12 included by On3 Sports with the rest of the top 10 including Louisville, Mississippi State, UCLA, Georgia, Michigan, Nebraska, Cal and LSU.

Along with DeVries and Small, WVU has brought in Eduardo Andre (C – Fresno State), Amani Hansberry (F – Illinois), Sencire Harris (G – Illinois), Toby Okani (G – UIC) and Joseph Yesufu (G – Washington State).

West Virginia’s staff now has 10 scholarship players with the other three being Naveh (returning), KJ Tenner (2024 guard) and Jonathan Powell (2024 guard). The Mountaineers can use up to three more scholarship spots during the offseason.

In 2023, West Virginia ranked second in transfer class rankings and 20th in 2022, according to 247 Sports.
