Former #1 Player in the State Returning Home?

Morgantown, West Virginia – According to a release from Duke University, former Huntington Prep star Jaemyn Brakefield has officially entered the transfer portal.

Brakefield, a 6’9 220 pound forward, is a former five star recruit who visited West Virginia University two seasons ago with his then-teammate Isaiah Cottrell before ultimately deciding to attend Duke.

Brakefield averaged 19.2 points, 8.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game as a senior at Huntington Prep and was named the West Virginia Gatorade Player of the Year as a sophomore, junior and senior.

In his freshman season at Duke, Brakefield averaged 3.5 points and 2.5 rebounds for the Blue Devils.

In his message, Brakefield said the following: “The opportunity to be a Blue Devil meant the world to me and I want to thank everyone I met in my time here at Duke.  The bonds I built will be with me forever.  I couldn’t have asked for a better group of individuals to be around during these unpredictable times and I thank my coaches, teammates and our fans for accepting me with open arms.  With that being said, I have decided to enter my name into the transfer portal.  I look forward to experiencing what God has in store for me ahead!”

With a lack of depth and size heading into next season, Jaemyn Brakefield is the absolute perfect prospect for the Mountaineers to go after.  Bob Huggins, make your magic happen!
