on

Over the next week, former West Virginia players Jalen Bridges and Sean McNeil will be taking visits to schools around the country. Bridges and McNeil entered the transfer portal in March.

Bridges will be visiting Alabama this weekend, while McNeil will head to Virginia and Cincinnati on Monday and Tuesday.

Bridges, a Fairmont native, spent three years at WVU, playing in two seasons and 61 games. The 6-foot-7 forward averaged 8.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, 0.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.7 blocks through 33 games this past season.

The 6-foot-7 forward moved into the starting lineup halfway through the 2020-21 season after Oscar Tshiebwe left. Bridges helped the Mountaineers solidify their new lineup in the middle of the season as they earned a 3-seed in the 2021 NCAA Tournament.

Bridges will have two years of eligibility remaining.

McNeil spent three seasons at West Virginia from 2019-22. The Union, KY, native scored 900 points in 89 career games for the Mountaineers. McNeil was a key piece to the 2021 NCAA Tournament team that earned a 3-seed, advancing to the round of 32. McNeil averaged 12.2 points during his senior campaign, shooting 37 percent from three.

McNeil will have one year of eligibility left.
