Update (4:00 PM) –
West Virginia’s basketball staff has hit the transfer portal once again this spring, securing three commitments from Jesse Edwards (Syracuse), Kerr Kriisa (Arizona) and Omar Silverio (Manhattan) in the last month. Pair those three with MAAC Preseason Player of the Year Jose Perez, who sat out this past season, and WVU has a core of transfer portal recruits for next season.
.@EvanMiya tells me that West Virginia has moved up to No. 2 in his transfer portal class rankings after the Jesse Edwards commitment
Evan had Edwards as the No. 5 best player in the portal
