Morgantown, West Virginia – Former West Virginia forward Emmitt Matthews, Jr. has no remaining collegiate eligibility, but he is still very much a big part of the Mountaineers family.

Matthews, who averaged 10.2 points and 3.9 rebounds per game last season for the Mountaineers, was not only successful on the court but also had a tremendous impact off the court as well.

Matthews posted the following message on social media earlier today: “Fun Fact: During my time here, I have only had one recruit leave their visit without saying they were going to commit. 40 minutes later, he FaceTimes me and tells me that he’s going to commit. I’m undefeated!”

During his time at WVU, Matthews was often the host player for recruits, taking them around Morgantown and showing them the facilities, meeting the coaches/players and showing them why West Virginia would be the right choice to make. With this kind of success, perhaps West Virginia should consider hiring Matthews as a recruiting coordinator!
