Just a night after committing to the Mountaineers, Detroit Mercy transfer guard Jayden Stone has signed with West Virginia, per release. Stone, 6-foot-4, has one year of eligibility remaining.

“Jayden brings us great versatility and can play a variety of positions,” WVU HC Darian DeVries said. “We love the way he can shoot the ball along with his ability to handle and facilitate.”

Stone averaged 20.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.7 assists for a Titans squad that went 1-31 on the season. The Australian native recorded three games over 30 points and scored 25 points against Big 12 foe Cincinnati this past year. Stone shot 42% from the field and 32% from three.

Stone began his collegiate career at Grand Canyon.

West Virginia now has 11 signed players for the 2024-25 season, the first of DeVries. WVU’s coaching staff has put together a group of eight transfer portal recruits, two high school senior commits and a returning sophomore Ofri Naveh.

Here are the transfer additions the Mountaineers have made this offseason: Tucker DeVries (G – Drake), Sencire Harris (G – Illinois), Amani Hansberry (F – Illinois), Toby Okani (F – UIC), Eduardo Andre (C – Fresno State), Javon Small (G – Oklahoma State), Joseph Yesufu (G – Washington State) and Stone.

WVU now has two spots remaining if they choose to use up all 13. The staff is hosting Sacramento State transfer forward Duncan Powell on Wednesday and Thursday for a visit.

    just food for thought,, shouldn’t wvu plan on being a big time basketball school,, do we have the donors to compete in football against the ohio states, penn states, michigans, alabamas, texases , okla. etc,,, it’s hard to believe we do imo… and how about upgrading NIL money for soccer and baseball???? stress baseketball, baseball soccer, and do the best wecan for football, unless things change,, can wvu spend 22 million per yr on football>and compete in a national level for a championship>.and what about other non revenue sports, swimming, track, wrestling ? how to distrubute 22 million among all sports, when football and basketball are the only sports the are revenue producers.. and what about title 9…. wouldn’t it be best if college sports just decided to go pro,, then can we avoid title 9? just pick a few sports,, how bout fb, bb, baseball, soccer and rifle.. got to keep the rifle program….and spread the 22 million between these sports… it’s all about title 9 , and yes i feel sorry for the women sports,, but they are basically dead weight,,,a women’s softball program would cost millions and millions to get started,, would we do that, i don’t think so,, very few women’s programs are revenue producers.. and lastly , where are we going to get 22million per yr to spread around, and who says how it’s spread…. questions, more questions than answers.
