According to On3Sports, West Virginia has shown interest in Princeton guard Jaelin Llewellyn on Monday. Llewellyn entered the transfer portal in the afternoon and had over 20 programs contacting him.
Llewellyn tells WV Sports Now that WVU assistant coach Larry Harrison reached out to him.
Llewellyn has played three seasons for the Tigers, averaging 15.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists this past season. The 6-foot-2 guard will have one year of eligibility remaining.
Llewellyn has heard from Alabama, Arkansas, Vanderbilt, Stanford, Minnesota, DePaul, Northwestern, Creighton, Western Kentucky, Clemson, Cal, West Virginia, Butler, Ohio State, UNLV, Georgetown, George Mason, SMU, Cincinnati, Iowa State, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Seton Hall, Providence, Texas A&M, and Miami.
This past season, West Virginia was 336th in the country in assists. Taz Sherman was the only Mountaineer to average over two assists per game with 2.4. Kedrian Johnson, Kobe Johnson and Seth Wilson are projected to be the ball handlers next season. The trio dished out 74 combined assists. Josiah Davis is a high school recruit, but it’s tough to judge any of the incoming freshmen before they even arrive on campus.
West Virginia could use a point guard from the portal that creates plays and doesn’t turn the ball over.
West Virginia Sports Now will keep up to date with the latest transfer portal news during the offseason.
