On Tuesday, West Virginia made it official by signing Washington State transfer guard Joseph Yesufu, per release. Yesufu reunites with WVU HC Darian DeVries, who he played for at Drake from 2019-21.

Yesufu committed to the Mountaineers on May 12.

“Joe is someone that brings valuable experience to our team,” DeVries said. “He has great familiarity and a comfort level with how we do things. He’s very explosive as a scorer and playmaker.”

Yesufu (6-foot) played this past season at Washington State. Yesufu appeared in six games, averaging 6.2 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists. The Bolingbrook, Il. native has played at Drake and Kansas. At Drake, Yesufu helped the Bulldogs to the 2021 NCAA Tournament, averaging 12.8 points. Yesufu transferred to Kansas after Drake and was a part of the 2022 National Championship team.

Yesufu has one year of eligibility remaining.

Yesufu becomes the seventh transfer WVU has signed this offseason, joining Tucker DeVries (G – Drake), Sencire Harris (G – Illinois), Amani Hansberry (F – Illinois), Toby Okani (F – UIC), Eduardo Andre (C – Fresno State) and Javon Small (G – Oklahoma State).

West Virginia now has 10 players signed on scholarship with three spots remaining if they choose to use those up.
