MORGANTOWN, West Virginia —Since Bob Huggins announced his resignation as the head coach at West Virginia, several players on the roster have entered the transfer portal.
However, moments ago, the Mountaineers got some really good news when Jesse Edwards, a 6’11 transfer from Syracuse, told Jon Rothstein that he is staying out and will play for West Virginia next season.
Edwards, who is expected to be the team’s starting center for the upcoming year, averaged 14.5 points and 10.3 rebounds per game for the Orange last season.
Edwards had the following to say on social media: “Goin’ nowhere. Time to make this a special year. Let’s go to work for this staff, this team and this place. Let’s go WV!”
