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.
