Morgantown, West Virginia – One of the top transfers in the nation is in Morgantown, visiting Bob Huggins and his coaching staff tonight.
Erik Stevenson, a 6’4 senior guard from Lacey, Washington, decided to leave South Carolina and enter the transfer portal after head coach Frank Martin was fired by the university.
Stevenson, who averaged 11.6 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game last season for the Gamecocks, transferred to South Carolina last season after playing at Wichita State and Washington.
In his one season at South Carolina, Stevenson was the team’s leader and shot an incredible 61-62 from the free throw line, which is an incredible 98.4%. Stevenson is also a consistent three point shooter and tough, gritty defensive player, and he would fit right in as a senior leader for the Mountaineers.
Stevenson has heard from several schools – including most recently from BYU and Georgia – but he is visiting Morgantown first and appears to be very excited about it. On his social media account earlier today, Stevenson said the following: “Morgantown tonight, can’t wait to see Coach Huggs and the staff!”
West Virginia will be very active in the transfer portal this offseason, but Erik Stevenson has become a real priority for Bob Huggins and his staff. Don’t be surprised if Stevenson makes his commitment to the Mountaineers before leaving town this weekend!
Morgantown tonight, can’t wait to see @CoachHuggs and the staff 💙💛
