Morgantown, West Virginia – According to Adam Zagoria, West Virginia guard Jose Perez will use his additional year to come back to play for the West Virginia Mountaineers!
Perez, who was denied a waiver for this last season, averaged 18.9 points and 4.5 assists per game for Manhattan in his previous season with the team.
With Perez back, West Virginia is also looking to add transfer guard Kerr Kriisa, who he hosted in Morgantown this last weekend.
Jose Perez tells me he will use his additional year to come back to the West Virginia men's basketball.
He was denied a waiver by the NCAA after transferring from Manhattan.
