West Virginia Still Pursuing Top Targets

West Virginia already has one of the top transfer classes in the nation, but they are far from done. The Mountaineers hope to add more talent to round out their roster before the 2023-2024 season.  

MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — The West Virginia Mountaineers have been very active in the transfer portal during this offseason, already landing Jose Perez, Omar Silverio, Kerr Kriisa, Jesse Edwards and RaeQuan Battle.

However, the West Virginia coaching staff is not done yet!

According to the Mountaineers’ Director of Player Personnel/Recruiting, Jay Kuntz, West Virginia is still in the hunt for talented players to fill out their already-loaded roster. Kuntz posted the following on social media last night: “Portal Season has me like…Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.”

According to reports, West Virginia has reached out to Paul Mulcahy, a talented senior transfer from Rutgers who averaged 8.3 points, 3.6 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game while shooting 37% from three point range.

In addition, Alexis Yetna, a 6’8 transfer from Seton Hall, is reportedly in Morgantown this weekend. Yetna, who averaged 8.1 points and 7.6 rebounds last season, was the AAC Newcomer of the Year in 2019 at South Florida. If the Mountaineers are able to land Yetna, he would be an ideal glue player for the team. Yetna, a native of France, is not only a talented offensive player on the post, he can rebound and is an outstanding defender.

The West Virginia coaching staff hasn’t missed on many of their targets this offseason and they are quietly putting together one of the best, most well-rounded rosters in the history of the program.

As the roster currently stands, here is how the rotation will look heading into the 2023-2024 season:

Kerr Kriisa 

RaeQuan Battle

Jose Perez

Tre Mitchell

Jesse Edwards 


Joe Toussaint 

Omar Silverio
