WVU Basketball Kerr Kriisa

WVU senior guard Kerr Kriisa has entered the transfer portal on Tuesday, he tells Stadium’s Jeff Goodman. Kriisa spent one season with West Virginia after transferring from Arizona, where he spent three years.

Kriisa committed to WVU last April under head coach Bob Huggins. During his recruitment, Kriisa also visited Nebraska and considered Xavier with former head coach Sean Miller. Once Huggins resigned, Kriisa re-entered the transfer portal before exiting to commit to interim HC Josh Eilert.

Kriisa averaged 11.0 points, 2.5 rebounds and 4.7 assists in 23 games for the Mountaineers this past season. The Estonian native shot 43% from the field and 42% from three. The 6-foot-3 guard was suspended for the first nine games of the season after receiving impermissible benefits while at Arizona.

Kriisa has his extra COVID year option with one year of eligibility remaining.

Kriisa is the second Mountaineer to enter the transfer portal this offseason, joining Seth Wilson.

    Addition by subtraction. Lazy and weak on defense, a sloppy showboat on offense, plus a negative presence in the locker room. Decent perimeter shooter though.

    He, Battle and Slazinski bear the brunt of the blame for 4-15 against Big 12 teams. They have some talent but their soft and lazy defense and me-first attitudes caused the worst season in history.

    None of them will be missed. Edwards will be the only one we miss. It’s hard to find Big 12 caliber big men.
