West Virginia’s basketball staff continues to reach out to players on Monday as they’ve contacted a pair of transfer portal guards and another international recruit. Boston College transfer DeMarr Langford Jr. and New Mexico State transfer Deshawndre Washington are the latest portal recruits WVU has reached out to, a source tells WV Sports Now.

West Virginia has also contacted Lithuanian forward Mintautas Mockus.


Langford (6-foot-5) played at Boston College for three seasons coming in as a four-star high school prospect. Langford averaged 7.0 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 23 games. Langford put up 11.3 points on 45% shooting during his sophomore season. Langford recorded seven games of scoring in double figures. The Worcester, Ma. native played at Brewster Academy during high school.

Langford entered the transfer portal on March 24 and has two years of eligibility remaining. Langford has been linked with Eastern Michigan, George Washington, Jacksonville State, Maryland, Richmond, Texas A&M-Corpus Cristi and others since entering the transfer portal.

Washington (6-foot-7) played one season at New Mexico State before entering the transfer portal in mid-March. Washington was originally recruited by former WVU associate head coach Larry Harrison when the Chicago native was playing in Junior College. Washington averaged 11.9 points, 6.9 rebounds and 3.8 assists this past season for the Aggies.

Washington has two years of eligibility remaining.

Mockus (6-foot-7) is the fifth international player reported in the last 24 hours that West Virginia has contacted. The coaching staff needed to get creative with who they’re targeting in late July. Mockus most recently played for Clinica Ponferrada in Spain. Mockus averaged 4.9 points in 15 games. Mockus will turn 20 in September and will be draft eligible in 2025.

West Virginia’s staff also contacted four international players with Abdullah Ahmed (C – Egypt), Ibrahim Mohamed (G – Egypt), Ofri Naveh (F – Israel) and Victory Onuetu (C – Spain). Naveh met with WVU on a Zoom call on Sunday. Kansas 2023 four-star decommit Marcus Adams Jr. has also heard from WVU.
