Over the last couple of days, the West Virginia basketball program has been welcoming the new enrolled players onto campus. Erik Stevenson, Joe Toussaint, Tre Mitchell, Josiah Harris, Jimmy Bell Jr, Mohamed Wague and Patrick Suemnick are the newly enrolled Mountaineers.

The team competed in their first full practice on Tuesday. Take a look at the video below to see the highlights.

Washington transfer Emmitt Matthews Jr. has not enrolled at WVU just yet, if you’re wondering where he was in the clip.

West Virginia has completely turned over their roster following a 16-17 record this past season. WVU head coach Bob Huggins and his staff have been retooling a roster that struggled to compete in the Big 12. Huggins has wanted to recruit transfers that have multiple years of eligibility and a lot do. As of now, only Stevenson, Matthews and Kedrian Johnson will have just one year of eligibility.

WVU may not be done adding players from the transfer portal just yet, as Texas transfer Courtney Ramey is considering Arizona and West Virginia, sources told WV Sports Now.
