Watch: RaeQuan Battle Explains Mental Health, Path to WVU in Video to NCAA



RaeQuan Battle

WVU G RaeQuan Battle posted a video directed to the NCAA on Tuesday, documenting his mental health struggles as well as his journey to West Virginia. Battle went into detail about his story and why he needs basketball in his life.

Battle states that the Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute at WVU helps him focus with his mental health. The Montana State transfer also mentions that interim HC Josh Eilert and him bonded over living on reservations growing up. Battle is currently seeking to possibly take legal action after the NCAA denied his transfer waiver twice.

Battle has transferred multiple times as an undergraduate student-athlete and is not a grad transfer after his summer session. The NCAA recently has started to crack down on waivers from transfers, no matter the situation. Battle transferred from Montana State this April after averaging 17.7 points on 47% shooting for the Bobcats. Battle led Montana State to the NCAA Tournament, giving 3-seed Kansas State a game in the first round. Battle and the Bobcats fell short but the current Mountaineer scored a game-high 27 points.
