Source: WVU to Host 2024 4-Star Darrion Sutton for Official Visit



Darrion Sutton

2024 four-star forward Darrion Sutton will begin an official visit to West Virginia starting on Thursday night, a source tells WV Sports Now. Sutton is a 6-foot-7 prospect who currently plays for Overtime Elite.

Sutton is currently No. 82 in the country, according to 247 Sports. Sutton, an original native of Missouri, has received offers from Akron, Butler, Cincinnati, Creighton, DePaul, Florida State, Fresno State, Georgia Tech, Illinois, UIC, Indiana State, Iowa, Louisiana Tech, Maryland, Miami (OH), Michigan, Mississippi State, Missouri, Ohio, Ohio State, Old Dominion, Ole Miss, Penn State, Rutgers, San Jose State, Seton Hall, St. John’s, Tennessee State, Toledo, Towson, UT-Arlington, Valparaiso, Virginia Tech, Wyoming and others. Sutton has most recently visited Georgia Tech, Michigan and Missouri.

Sutton averaged 14.6 points and 10.7 rebounds for Gateway City Elite during the 2021-22 season. Sutton reclassified to 2024 and joined the Overtime Elite roster while maintaining his college eligibility.

West Virginia’s staff now has a third-straight weekend of hosting a top-100 player for an official visit. Naas Cunningham (2024 F) and Jasper Johnson (2025 G) have officially visited WVU over the past two weeks and Chance Mallory (2025 G) unofficially visited West Virginia as well. WVU’s staff, who have recruited the transfer portal well over the past two years, are trying to dip into high school recruiting and land a top prospect.
