Morgantown, West Virginia – Derek Culver is leaving West Virginia University and will pursue a career in the NBA.

Culver, a first team Big 12 player last season, has signed with the Athletes Sports Management group.

Although he could still return under the new NCAA rules, that is very unlikely to happen.

Culver averaged 14.3 points and 9.4 rebounds per game for the Mountaineers last season, but is not considered to be a potential pick in the 2021 NBA Draft by experts and analysts.

Culver has given West Virginia University three very solid seasons and we wish him nothing but the best!
