West Virginia’s staff has made contact with Alabama transfer Jahvon Quinerly, a source tells WV Sports Now. Quinerly, a 6-foot-1 guard, entered the transfer portal last week with one year of eligibility remaining.

Quinerly played at Alabama under head coach Nate Oats for the last three seasons. Quinerly averaged 8.7 points and 3.6 assists in 21.2 minutes per game last season. Quinerly saw a decrease in minutes after averaging double figures from 2020-22. Quinerly scored 1,149 points over 96 games for the Crimson Tide, helping lead them to three-straight NCAA Tournament appearances.

Quinerly began his collegiate career at Villanova. The Hackensack, New Jersey native was once a five-star recruit in the class of 2018.

West Virginia currently has four spots to fill following the resignation of Bob Huggins and the whole coaching search. Former guard Joe Toussaint announced on Monday that he will not return to West Virginia. The Mountaineers still have Mohamed Wague and James Okonkwo in the portal that are considering a return.

WVU is in the second stage of the transfer portal this offseason. The coaching staff currently has all five additions on campus and working out: RaeQuan Battle (G – Montana State), Jesse Edwards (C – Syracuse), Kerr Kriisa (G – Arizona), Jose Perez (G – Manhattan) and Omar Silverio (G – Manhattan). Battle, Edwards and Kriisa have all pledged to stay at WVU.
