The NCAA Transfer Portal officially opened on Dec. 4 and it’s been as chaotic as expected for just about every program in the country — including WVU.

But when taking a look at Neal Brown and the West Virginia Mountaineers, although they have lost a large chunk of transfers, they have mostly been ale to retain the core members of the team. With that said, the losses have hurt the depth and put a pressure on WVU to look to the portal to add new pieces.
