West Virginia Basketball Fills Final Scholarship

Morgantown, West Virginia – Moments ago, the West Virginia Mountaineers filled their final available scholarship for the 2020-2021 season.  Seny Ndiaye, a 6’11 205 pound center, played for Huntington Prep in Huntington, West Virginia last season.

West Virginia freshman Isaiah Cottrell was teammates with Ndiaye last season and said the following after it was announced that he was committed: “Mountaineer Nation, we got a good one!”

Although Ndiaye will need to bulk up in the weight room, he is considered an elite shot-blocker and outstanding rebounder with tons of upside on offense.  Bob Huggins said that he was not in a hurry to fill the final scholarship and would wait until the perfect player for his team became available.  Seny Ndiaye appears to be the final missing piece of the puzzle for the incredibly talented West Virginia Mountaineers.
