Former West Virginia big man Oscar Tshiebwe has completed his separation from the basketball program and the university, officially entering his name into the NCAA transfer portal according to multiple outlets.

WVU announced that the 6-foot-9 sophomore would be stepping away from the basketball team last week due to ‘personal reasons’. WVU coach Bob Huggins was quick to rule out a potential return, however, saying Friday morning that Tshiebwe would ‘absolutely not’ return to the Mountaineers.

Tshiebwe’s official entry into the transfer portal shows that a return to WVU is also not high on the former McDonald’s All-American’s list of possibilities. CaneSport has reported in recent days that Tshiebwe is in Miami, Florida in contact with the University of Miami. Those reports have been confirmed by Bob Greenburg, a radio host in Mercer County, Pennsylvania, where Tshiebwe played high school basketball.

Miami did not originally offer Tshiebwe when he was coming out of Kennedy Catholic High School in 2019, according to the databases of 247Sports and rivals.
