According to ESPN, West Virginia forward Oscar Tshiebwe will be one of the best returning players in the country next season.
ESPN ranked Tshiebwe the 10th best returning player, saying, “Tshiebwe’s first season with the Mountaineers had ‘outrageous potential’ written all over it. The 6-9 freshman ranked No. 1 in the nation in offensive rebound percentage, and, incredibly, that was with 6-10 Derek Culver occasionally playing alongside him and competing for those same second chances. Tshiebwe was also unusually competent (71%) at the line for a shot-blocking freshman. If breakout sophomores are still a thing in this strange new sports era, Tshiebwe will be at the top of that list for 2021.”
Tshiebwe averaged 10.3 points and 9.2 rebounds per game as a freshman this past season.
