Morgantown, West Virginia – Moments ago, Joe Tipton of On3Sports.com announced that West Virginia forward Jamel King plans to leave the West Virginia basketball program and enter the transfer portal.
King, a 6’7 sophomore from Uniontown, Alabama, played in eight games this season, averaging 1.6 points, 0.6 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game for the Mountaineers.
King’s departure opens up another roster spot for West Virginia to add a more experienced player in the transfer portal. Bob Huggins and his staff have been very active already in the offseason, contacting virtually every major player who has entered the portal.
King had the following to say about his departure: “Thank you Mountaineer Nation for everything. These last two seasons have been really hard not playing and competing with the guys I call my brothers. I also want to thank WVU for the experience and opportunity that has been provided to me.”
