It is unknown to the exact reason why the visit is being canceled. It doesn’t sound like the Bob Huggins situation affected this much.
Sunahara (6-foot-8) averaged 18.9 points, 5.4 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.6 blocks per game. Sunahara shot 60 percent from the field and 40 percent from three on 60 attempts. The transfer forward helped lead NSU to an undefeated 36-0 record, winning the NCAA Division-II National Championship over West Liberty. Sunahara recorded 28 points and nine rebounds in the championship-clinching win.
Sunahara has visited Georgia and Notre Dame in the last week. Sunahara has one year of eligibility remaining. Sunahara is the son of WVU volleyball head coach Reed Sunahara and the brother of former WVU football long-snapper Rex Sunahara.
The NCAA Transfer Portal closes on May 11 for entries. Players are still able to visit schools and commit after the deadline as long as they’re in the system by Thursday.
It still appears that West Virginia’s coaching staff is still looking at options in the transfer portal this month. WVSN will keep you up to date on West Virginia’s latest transfer portal recruiting.
