Morgantown, West Virginia – Senior guard Taz Sherman has a big decision to make now that West Virginia’s basketball season is officially over. He can use his extra year of eligibility to play one more season for the Mountaineers, or he can decide to leave WVU to attempt a professional career overseas.
Based on a message posted on his personal Instagram account moments ago, Sherman appears ready to move on: “My most memorable season by far in my basketball career. Thankful I can go out and give my all with my brothers. 12 out.”
Sherman’s teammate, junior point guard Jordan McCabe, seemed to confirm his departure, saying, “Been a pleasure. Love you bro.”
Several other teammates, including Sean McNeil, Gabe Osabuohien and former Mountaineer James “Beetle” Bolden, also added replies to the message which hinted at Sherman’s college career coming to an end.
Although this is certainly not an official announcement and nothing has been confirmed yet, Sherman appears to be at the very least leaning towards not returning for another season at West Virginia University.
Sherman, a 6’4 190 pound guard from Missouri City, Texas, averaged 13.4 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game for the Mountaineers this past season. Following West Virginia’s loss to Syracuse in the 2nd round of the NCAA Tournament, he admitted that he received death threats from “West Virginia fans” during the season.
