Report: WVU Transfer Omar Silverio Needs Waiver to Play in 2023-24



WVU G Omar Silverio

According to national reporter Adam Zagoria, newly committed WVU transfer Omar Silverio will still need a waiver to play in the 2023-24 season.

Silverio technically has one year of eligibility left.

Silverio (6-foot-3) last played at Hofstra during the 2021-22 season, averaging 10.9 points and 3.3 rebounds. The native of the Dominican Republic shot 37 percent from the field and 36 percent from three.

Silverio left Manhattan after head coach Steve Masiello was dismissed just weeks before the season started, just like current Mountaineer Jose Perez. Silverio started his collegiate career at Rhode Island.

Perez needed to go through the wavier process this season, as the Bronx, NY, native had to sit out. Perez committed to West Virginia and enrolled for the spring semester but was not granted a waiver to play in games. Perez has been able to practice with the team since mid-December. Perez is good to go for the 2023-24 season.
