MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — Moments ago, Carmelo Adkins, a 6’5 combo guard from Phoenix, Arizona, announced that he is decommitting from West Virginia. Adkins, a three star recruit, is currently the only commit in the Mountaineers’ 2024 recruiting class.

Very grateful for Coach McCabe, Coach Eilert, Jay Kuntz and the entire staff for giving me an opportunity to play at WVU. 

With the new coaching staff coming in I would like to announce I’ve requested a release from my National Letter of Intent at WVU. 

At this time, I will be re-opening my recruitment for the betterment of my academic and athletic career.  

Thanks to all the fans and local media for the support for the support during my recruitment.”
