One of two seniors on the West Virginia men’s basketball team, guard Taz Sherman could return to the Mountaineers in 2021-22, taking advantage of the NCAA’s blanket eligibility waiver this season.

The day after WVU’s season ended, however, Sherman posted on Instagram that he is yet undecided about a potential return.

To leave no confusion, Sherman clarified in the comments that he has not yet made a decision.

A former junior college transfer, Sherman was WVU’s third-leading scorer this season, averaging 13.4 points per game on 41.3% shooting, 35.9% on 3-pointers. He was a candidate for the Big 12 Sixth Man of the Year Award, averaging 24.4 minutes in 28 games, including six starts.

A native of Missouri City, Texas, Sherman scored 20 points in a single game fives time this season, scoring a career-high 26 points in a losing effort against Baylor near the end of the season.

Sherman averaged 5.3 points and 13.1 minutes per game during his first season with WVU in 2019-20. He shot 38.3% from the floor and 33.3% from deep.

If he chooses to return to WVU next season, that would be Sherman’s final year of eligibility. WVU’s other senior, forward Gabe Osabuohien, has also not yet announced a decision for next season.
