West Virginia has scheduled a visit for Tennessee transfer Olivier Nkamhoua for May 27-28, a source tells WV Sports Now. WVU’s staff made contact with Nkamhoua last month and now look to land the former Volunteer.

Nkamhoua (6-foot-8) started for the Volunteers this past season, as the team made the Sweet-16. Nkamhoua averaged 10.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists through 36 games. Nkamhoua shot 51 percent from the field. The Finland native played four seasons for Tennessee.

Nkamhoua participated in the NBA G-League draft combine this past week in Chicago. Nkamhoua had a nice showing during his time at the combine. Nkamhoua declared for the draft and entered his name into the transfer portal.

Michigan is a school that has been linked with Nkamhoua’s recruitment all offseason. The Wolverines are coming off a week where they lost North Carolina transfer Caleb Love, who re-opened his recruitment.

West Virginia is looking to round out their impressive transfer portal class this offseason. The Mountaineers bring in RaeQuan Battle (G – Montana State), Jesse Edwards (C – Syracuse), Kerr Kriisa (G – Arizona), Jose Perez (G – Manhattan) and Omar Silverio (G – Manhattan). WVU is looking to add depth to their rotation for next season and believes that Nkamhoua can take them over the top in the brutal Big 12. West Virginia scheduled a visit with NABC D-II Player of the Year RJ Sunahara before the two parties decided to cancel it. Now they’ve found another player to come on campus and meet with the coaching staff.

WVSN will keep you up to date with Nkamhoua’s visit as West Virginia continues to recruit the transfer portal.
