Morgantown, West Virginia – The West Virginia Mountaineers’ coaching staff has done it again! Already having landed one of the top transfer classes in the nation, West Virginia has now landed former four star player RaeQuan Battle!
Battle, a 6’5 guard from Tulalip, Washington, visited Morgantown this weekend and was clearly impressed with what he saw. Battle averaged 17.7 points, 2.9 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game this past season at Montana State.
Prior to his one season at Montana State, Battle played for the Washington Huskies. Battle is a former Top 100 prospect and a four star recruit out of high school. He is currently the 27th ranked player in the transfer portal according to 247 Sports. Battle, who has elite athleticism and jumping ability, also heard from multiple major programs around the country, including Kansas State, Cal, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Clemson, Louisville, LSU, UCLA, Alabama, Oregon and many others.
In the NCAA Tournament this past March, Battle scored 27 points in an opening round loss to Kansas State, shooting 9-17 from the field, 3-5 from three point range and 6-8 from the foul line.
West Virginia has been searching for a big wing who can shoot the three and defend to complete their starting rotation and may just have found that player in RaeQuan Battle!
