On Friday afternoon, WVU basketball announced the signing of Arizona transfer guard Kerr Kriisa to a grant-in-aid for the 2023-24 season. Kriisa committed to West Virginia back on April 5.

“Kerr is an outstanding guard who our guys will love playing with. He shares the ball extremely well and is more than capable of getting the ball to the open guy. Kerr has tremendous floor vision. He is a very efficient 3-point shooter. His experience playing at a high level will be invaluable to our team,” WVU head coach Bob Huggins said.

Kriisa (6-foot-3) leaves Arizona after three seasons, serving as a full-time starter the last two years under Tommy Lloyd. Kriisa, a native of Estonia, averaged 9.9 points, 2.4 rebounds and 5.1 assists this past season. Kriisa was second in the Pac-12 in total assists and also shot 37 percent from three. Kriisa has appeared in the last two NCAA Tournaments for Arizona, reaching the Sweet-16 last year.

During his portal recruitment, Kriisa visited West Virginia, as well as Nebraska. Xavier and Creighton were other schools that had high interest in the guard.

Kriisa has two years of eligibility remaining.

WVU basketball currently has four transfer portal commitments for the 2023-24 season with Kriisa, Jesse Edwards (C – Syracuse), Jose Perez (G – Manhattan) and Omar Silverio (G – Manhattan).
