West Virginia Lands Player of the Year Candidate

Morgantown, West Virginia – Moments ago, West Virginia landed Jose Perez, a transfer from Manhattan and the MAAC Preseason Player of the Year!

Perez, a 6’5 guard from Bronx, New York, averaged 18.9 points per game last season. He expects to be available this season and will instantly be able to step in and be a starter and a top scorer for the Mountaineers.

“I chose West Virginia to play for a legendary, Hall-of-Fame coach in Bob Huggins,” Perez told On3. “He constantly called me twice a day and made sure that he got his message across. That was that they just didn’t want me there, but that they needed me.”
