Report: Brandon Knapper Transferring from WVU



West Virginia sophomore guard Brandon Knapper has entered the transfer portal and will be departing WVU, according to and confirmed by Chris Anderson of 247Sports.

Knapper, a sophomore, has played two seasons at WVU. As a redshirt freshman, the South Charleston, WV native, played in 32 games, making four starts. He averaged 5.0 points and 1.4 assists in 13.8 minutes per game.

As a sophomore Knapper’s role shrank as West Virginia’s rotation increased to 12 players. This season Knappers only averaged 8.4 minutes per game, scoring 2.6 points.

Knapper ended the season on a cold streak, making only one of his final 21 field goal attempts. His final basket of the season came on Feb. 1 against Kansas State. He did not score in the eight games he appeared in following that.

Knapper scored a season-high 10 points against Texas Tech on Jan. 11. His career-high scoring output came against Oklahoma last season. Knapper scored 25 against the Sooners in a 79-71 WVU victory.
