Brandon Knapper’s departure from the West Virginia University men’s basketball team this offseason created an open scholarship, and on Wednesday evening the Mountaineers filled that void.
Seny Ndiaye, a 6-foot-11 center who spent time at both Beckley Prep and Huntington Prep, will sign with WVU according multiple reports. He will be eligible to play with the Mountaineers in the upcoming season, though he could be a candidate to redshirt.
Tried to hold this until he announced, but 6-11 big man Seny Ndiaye has signed with #WVU and will enroll for this coming season.

Ndiaye was originally classified in the Class of 2020, but switched to 2021 and appeared on his way to another season playing at a prep school. He had a change of heart, and returned to the Class of 2020 before signing with WVU. It is a similar situation to that of current Mountaineer Jalen Bridges, who was on his way to a year at prep school after a standout career at Fairmont Senior High. Bridges reclassified late, and signed with West Virginia last September before sitting out as a redshirt.
