The Future of West Virginia Basketball

Morgantown, West Virginia – The 2022-2023 West Virginia Mountaineers men’s basketball season starts in the coming weeks with mixed expectations. Bob Huggins has said that this team “will make a run” and “will finish better than 9th place in the Big 12”, where they were picked in the conference preseason poll.

However, the Mountaineers lost several key players from last year’s team, including starters Taz Sherman, Sean McNeil, Jalen Bridges and Isaiah Cottrell, as well as senior spark plug Gabe Osabuohien. Although Bob Huggins managed to put together a top ten transfer class, the team lacks a true perimeter scoring punch who can takeover a game.

Enter Bryce Lindsay. 

Linsday, a 6’4 combo guard out of Baltimore, Maryland, could immediately fill that void and more for the Mountaineers. A four star recruit, Lindsay previously committed to play for South Carolina before Bob Huggins’ close friend and former assistant Frank Martin was fired by the university.

Since then, Lindsay has reopened his recruitment and West Virginia is right in the thick of things for his services. In fact, Lindsay is currently in Morgantown on a visit and based on his activity on social media, seems to be really enjoying his time in West Virginia.

Lindsay, who describes his skillset as “a point guard who has great decisions-making skills on the ball and off the ball and who can score on all three levels and shoot it from anywhere on the court”, has scholarship offers galore, including from Villanova, Pitt, Georgetown, Oklahoma State, Mississippi State, DePaul, Virginia Tech and many others.

Although Lindsay has visited many schools over the past several weeks, he really seems to be most excited about his visit to Morgantown. In a post on social media today, Lindsay said, “Thank you Coach (Larry) Harrison and Coach Huggins, appreciate y’all for having me. Great time at WVU.”

Stay tuned! West Virginia could soon land a truly remarkable, one-of-a-kind player in Bryce Lindsay!
