West Virginia certainly had one of the most chaotic years in 2023, losing hall of fame coach Bob Huggins as well as retooling the roster multiple times.
WVU interim HC Josh Eilert has dealt with many challenges with his transfer class as Akok Akok (F – Georgetown), RaeQuan Battle (G – Montana State), Jesse Edwards (C – Syracuse), Noah Farrakhan (G – Eastern Michigan) and Kerr Kriisa (G – Arizona) have all missed time on the floor for one reason or another. WVU F Quinn Slazinski has been the team’s most consistent transfer, appearing in all 13 games and improving his stats from Iona.
West Virginia currently sits at 5-8 as Battle, Farrakhan and Kriisa are changing the dynamic of the team after all returning mid-December. Edwards continues to deal with a fractured wrist injury into Big 12 play and will be out of action for a couple more weeks. Things could get interesting for West Virginia with the talent they bring back. Let’s take a look at their top transfers.
