West Virginia’s staff has contacted Zyon Pullin (UC Riverside) and D’Marco Dunn (North Carolina) in the transfer portal, a source told WV Sports Now on Wednesday. Pullin and Dunn are looked upon as depth pieces at the combo guard position for WVU.

Pullin (6-foot-4) entered the transfer portal on Wednesday as a graduate transfer from UC Riverside. Even though Pullin entered the portal after the entry window closed, he will be eligible to play next season since he’s a fifth-year senior. Pullin, a two-time All-Big West recipient, averaged 18.3 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.2 assists last season. The Pleasant Hill, Ca. native shot 49 percent from the field and 39 percent from three.

Dunn (6-foot-4) entered the transfer portal last Thursday, leaving North Carolina after two seasons. Dunn was rated a 4-star prospect out of high school. The Tuson, Az. native appeared in 27 games for the Tar Heels this past season, averaging 2.7 points in 10.2 minutes.

Pullin and Dunn are combo guards that can round out the roster for WVU. The two portal recruits give the Mountaineers depth at the two and three positions. Pullin has one year of eligibility remaining, while Dunn has two years.

WVU’s staff has been searching for more depth in the transfer portal over the past few weeks. West Virginia contacted the NABC D-II Player of the Year RJ Sunahara from Nova Southeastern, even scheduling a visit. Sunahara and WVU parted ways with the visit last week but there have been signs of the staff not finished with recruiting in the transfer portal this offseason.

West Virginia currently has five commitments for the transfer portal class this offseason. RaeQuan Battle (G – Montana State), Jesse Edwards (C – Syracuse), Kerr Kriisa (G – Arizona) Jose Perez (G – Manhattan) and Omar Silverio (G – Manhattan).
