Key West Virginia starter enters the transfer portal

Emmitt Matthews Jr., a 6'7 215lb junior forward, has elected to transfer (joining teammate Jordan McCabe) via Verbal Commits. He averaged roughly 8 points and 4 rebounds for the Mountaineers this past season. More recently, Matthews Jr. scored 14 points and pulled down 7 rebounds in West Virginia's loss to Syracuse in the round of 32. Matthews Jr. is a stout defender and still has a high ceiling, he certainly will have a long list of suitors vying for his talents next season.
