WVU’s coaching staff has continued to pursue many transfer portal prospects over the last few days like Akok Akok from UConn and Micah Parrish from Oakland. A source told WV Sports Now that WVU head coach Bob Huggins was in Connecticut on Monday, visiting Akok. Akok is planning on visiting Morgantown as soon as next week.

West Virginia has picked up South Carolina transfer Erik Stevenson and Iowa’s Joe Toussaint, while also getting JUCO bigs Mohamed Wague and Jimmy Bell Jr. during this offseason.
