Former WVU guard Kerr Kriisa has committed to Kentucky, as first reported by ESPN’s Jonathan Givony. Kriisa now joins first-year UK head coach Mark Pope for his final year of college basketball.

Kriisa becomes the third Mountaineer to transfer to Kentucky in the last three seasons, joining Oscar Tshiebwe and Tre Mitchell.

“IM A WILDCAT FOR LIFE!!,” Kriisa wrote on Instagram.

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 committed to WVU last April under head coach Bob Huggins. Once Huggins resigned, Kriisa re-entered the transfer portal before exiting to commit to interim HC Josh Eilert.

Kriisa began his career at Arizona under Sean Miller and Tommy Lloyd, and has one year of eligibility remaining.

    We really have to rethink the, “Once a Mountaineer Always a Mountaineer” thing.

    “Wildcat for Life” (or until my next transfer; whichever comes first)
