Perez (6-foot-5) transferred to West Virginia in late October after Manhattan head coach Steve Masiello was let go two weeks before the season started. Perez committed to WVU within days of entering the portal in hopes of playing this past season. The Bronx, NY native sat out the entirety of the 2022-23 season after being denied a waiver by the NCAA. Perez last played in the 2021-22 season with Manhattan, averaging 18.9 points, 3.2 rebounds and 4.5 assists. Perez shot 40 percent from the field. Perez was named the Preseason MAAC Player of the Year.
Perez re-opened his recruitment in July after Bob Huggins resigned. Perez committed back to Eilert’s staff but will not play a game for West Virginia. On Sept. 30, West Virginia and Perez parted ways after a disagreement about attending study hall. Perez did not attend study hall and was not allowed to practice during that week.
