Morgantown, West Virginia – Bob Huggins and his staff have been busy during the offseason, scouring the transfer portal and offering scholarships to the best available players in the nation.
Since the season ended, the Mountaineers have landed commitments from Erik Stevenson, a five star transfer guard out of South Carolina, Joe Toussaint, a five star transfer guard who played for Iowa for the past three seasons, and Mohamed Wague, one of the top JUCO players in the country, who averaged a double-double and led all junior college players in rebounds per game.
Evan Miyakawa, a college basketball analytics expert, currently ranks West Virginia 4th in the nation in top incoming transfer classes as of today. The Mountaineers rank only behind Arkansas, LSU and UAB right now.

But Bob Huggins is not even close to done! The top-rated player in the transfer portal, Norchad Omier, the 2022 Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year as a Freshman, is scheduled to visit Morgantown in the coming days. Omier, who averaged 17.9 points, 12.2 rebounds, 2.0 blocks, and 1.6 steals per game last season, would likely put the Mountaineers at the top of the transfer rankings.
When Bob Huggins said he was going to fix it, he was serious!
