Illinois transfer guard Sencire Harris is scheduled to visit West Virginia this weekend, as reported by Fox Illinois‘ Dante Furco. Harris is the fourth transfer to visit WVU in the last week, with the program hosting three recruits last weekend.

Harris entered the transfer portal on Monday, following the departure of Illinois assistant Chester Frazier, who was officially hired by West Virginia as associate head coach on Wednesday.

Harris’ contact list is unknown at the moment, but it’s assumed Power-5 and mid-major programs have reached out.

Harris (6-foot-4) spent two years at Illinois under HC Brad Underwood, playing in one season. The Canton, Ohio native averaged 3.7 points and 2.1 rebounds on 43% shooting during his freshman season in the 2022-23 year. Underwood decided to redshirt Harris this past season to work on his development. Out of high school, Harris was a four-star prospect out of St. Vincent/St. Mary’s High School, where LeBron James attended. Frazier was listed as the lead recruiter for Harris out of high school.

Harris’ contact list is unknown at the moment, but it’s assumed Power-5 and mid-major programs have reached out.

Harris has three years of eligibility remaining.

WVU has landed one transfer commitment with DeVries so far this offseason and has lost Josiah Harris (F), Seth Wilson (G), Patrick Suemnick (F), Kerr Kriisa (G), Jeremiah Bembry (G) and Kobe Johnson (G). WVU also has a high school commitment from former Drake signee KJ Tenner.
