West Virginia men’s basketball has a big weekend ahead of them as they plan on hosting three unofficial visits on Saturday. 2024 5-star Trentyn Flowers, 2024 C Matthew Gilhool and 2025 F Alier Maluk have all been reported and confirmed that they will visit WVU.

Flowers (6-foot-9, 180 pounds) is ranked No. 8 in the country by 247 Sports. The No. 1 prospect from Virginia received an offer from WVU on Wednesday.

Flowers is a member of the class of 2024 and is entering his junior year at Rosedale Christian Academy in Maryland. Flowers attended Sierra Canyon (CA) and Huntington Prep (WV) during his first two years of high school. At Huntington Prep, Flowers averaged 18.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.0 steals per game. Flowers shot 46 percent from the field his sophomore year.

Many schools around the country are in pursuit of Flowers. Flowers has received offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Cincinnati, Florida, Georgetown, Georgia, Georgia State, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Iona, Kansas, Kansas State, LSU, Maryland, Memphis, Michigan, Missouri, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, UNLV, USC and Xavier. Flowers has picked up interest from Duke, North Carolina and UCLA as well.

Gilhool (6-foot-10, 205 pounds) is heading into his junior season at Elizabethtown Area High School. Gilhool also plays for Philly Pride on the AAU circuit. West Virginia’s coaching staff extended an offer to Gilhool back on July 25. The Pennsylvania native has picked up offers from Bryant, Mississippi State, Penn State, Rutgers and St. John’s. Gilhool visited Penn State back in June and has interest from many high-major schools around the country.

Maluk (6-foot-10, 190 pounds) is a power forward at Imani Christian Academy in Pittsburgh. Maluk is currently ranked as the No. 23 prospect in his class according to ESPN. The rising sophomore should be considered a 5-star recruit when he is ranked by other recruiting sites.

Maluk has been in contact with WVU assistant Larry Harrison. Maluk is learning what West Virginia basketball is all about through Harrison.

“I talk to Larry Harrison,” Maluk told WV Sports Now. “He tells me that they play a lot of defense and that they like high-motor players. They get downhill, they get straight to it. He tells me all about their program, their assistant coaches and everything.
