Even after retaining one key player, it looks like West Virginia is losing another. Forward Mohamed Wague has entered the Transfer Portal. 24/7 High School Hoops was first with the news.
Minutes after the news began to circulate, Wague tweeted a message of appreciation for WVU’s interim head coach Josh Eilert and said he will consider staying with West Virginia, but needs to explore his options.
love the man and everyone in that building to death, and returning is 100% something I will consider but I feel like it’s in my best interest to explore what is out there for me. 💙💛 pic.twitter.com/GGR5dUZaXp
