As first reported by Jake Weingarten of Stockrisers, West Virginia has offered 4-star forward Tyrell Ward on Sunday afternoon. Ward (6-foot-7, 185 pounds) is a top 40 prospect in the class of 2022.

Ward, a Hyattsville, Md, native decommitted from Xavier on Sunday morning after head coach Travis Steele was fired. Ward re-opened his recruitment right after.

“Due to the recent coaching changes at Xavier University, I’ve decided to ask the university for my release from my NLI and will re-open my recruitment,” Ward said. “100% Xavier will still be an option. I’m grateful to Xavier for the love they’ve shown to me and my family throughout the process.”

Ward averaged 19.1 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.9 blocks per game during his senior season for DeMatha Catholic High School. Ward has also heard from Georgetown, Pitt, Providence, UCF and Virginia Tech.
