Two West Virginia Players Could Transfer and Be Eligible Elsewhere Immediately

After Bob Huggins’ resignation, several players on the current roster are reportedly considering going elsewhere.  

MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — The West Virginia Mountaineers put together one of the best transfer classes in the entire nation during the offseason, adding Jose Perez, Omar Silverio, Kerr Kriisa, Jesse Edwards and RaeQuan Battle.

However, the Mountaineers are in danger of losing at least some of these players following Bob Huggins’ arrest and announcement that he’s resigning. According to Jon Rothstein, “An NCAA official tells me that West Virginia’s players now have a 30-day window to transfer following Bob Huggins’ resignation. Two players in the Mountaineers’ transfer class – Kerr Kriisa and Jesse Edwards – would be eligible immediately without a waiver since they’re not two-time transfers.

The other remaining players – Jose Perez, Omar Silverio and RaeQuan Battle – would still be able to transfer, but would likely require a waiver for it to happen. These players would be taking a real risk that the NCAA would not approve the waiver and that they would have to sit out a year if that happens.
