West Virginia has contacted Iona/St. John’s transfer Quinn Slazinski, per source

Slazinski transferred to St. John’s earlier in the spring after head coach Rick Pitino took the job. Slazinski played the previous two seasons at Iona under Pitino, appearing in 40 games over that span. The Houston, Texas native averaged 11.3 points and 5.7 rebounds in just seven games for the Gaels. Slazinski dealt with knee and ankle injuries last season and was eventually shut down by Pitino for season-ending surgery in January.
Slazinksi began his career at Louisville under Chris Mack, committing from Huntington Prep. Out of high school, Slazinski was a three-star prospect.
Slazinski, at the moment, has one year of eligibility remaining but could be granted another year for a medical redshirt.
West Virginia’s staff is currently trying to fill the final four spots on the roster through the transfer portal and international prospects. WVU currently has nine players on the roster: RaeQuan Battle (G), Jeremiah Bembry (G), Jesse Edwards (C), Josiah Harris (F), Kobe Johnson (G), Kerr Kriisa (G), Omar Silverio (G), Patrick Suemnick (F) and Seth Wilson (G).
