Emmitt Matthews Predicts WVU Player Will Win Big 12 Player of the Year

Morgantown, West Virginia – Former West Virginia star forward Emmitt Matthews, Jr. is out of eligibility and has played his last game for the Mountaineers, but he believes one current player on the team has a very bright future.

In a social media post today, Matthews said he believes that Tre Mitchell will be the future Big 12 Conference Player of the Year. Mitchell, who averaged 11.7 points and 5.5 rebounds per game in his first season with the Mountaineers last season, has one year remaining and has not yet officially announced whether he will return for his final season or not.

Matthews said the following today about Mitchell: “Tre Mitchell future Big 12 mvp BOOK IT.”

Matthews later clarified that he meant to say that Mitchell would be the future Big 12 MVP if he decides to return for another year.

Matthews went on to say that Mitchell could play professionally right now, but that he can also come back, have an even better year next year and position himself better for the professional level. He then said that he will make an announcement about his future soon and joked that he might have another year of eligibility. Matthews, of course, has played four seasons at West Virginia and one season at Washington, and has no eligibility remaining.
