West Virginia has landed a commitment from Florida International transfer Dimon Carrigan.

Carrigan (6-foot-9) averaged 6.8 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.5 blocks in 24 games, 21 starts, for the Panthers this season. He entered the NCAA transfer portal as a grad transfer on March 16. 2020-21 was Carrigan’s second season with FIU. He averaged 3.2 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 2019-20.

Carrigan, a Boston native, began his college career at Bunker Hill Community College in 2017-18. He averaged 19.6 points, 17.9 rebounds and 7.3 blocks that season. He played 2018-19 at Odessa Community College, averaging 4.6 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.7 blocks.

Carrigan was rated as a three-star recruit coming out of high school in 2017 with offers from Syracuse and Houston. He was considered the best shot-blocker in the nation as a high school senior. WVU coach Bob Huggins lamented not having a shot-blocker on the roster earlier this year.

Carrigan will have one year of eligibility remaining.
