Star WVU baseball player JJ Wetherholt is expected to be highly sought after this offseason. After putting together a solid 2023 season so far, accumulating 15 home runs, 56 RBIs, a .466 batting average, and 35 stolen bases, many assume that other programs will reach out to him with NIL money.
While most players would jump on that opportunity, it doesn’t appear Wetherholt will be one of them.
The sophomore confirmed on the 3 Guys Before the Game podcast that he will return in 2024.

“I’m not going anywhere.”
During the discussion with Brad Howe, Hoppy Kercheval, and Tony Caridi, Wetherholt claimed that his status moving forward “shouldn’t even be in question.” He intends on finishing his career with the Mountaineers.
This is great news for Mountaineer Nation, whose fandom for baseball has been rejuvenated with the team’s success!
