The West Virginia Mountaineers may finally have some good news on the horizon. Arkansas-Little Rock wing Rayjon Tucker has entered the NCAA transfer portal as a graduate transfer and is taking a visit to the Mountaineers next weekend, April 12.
Tucker, who averaged 20.3 points a game for the Trojans and shot better than 49% from the field, would bring an instant upgrade to the Mountaineer offense that ranked 156th in the nation at 73.1 points per game.
According to Evan Daniels of 247Sports, Tucker is also considering the Memphis Tigers, Texas Tech Red Raiders, Auburn Tigers, North Carolina Tar Heels, Kansas Jayhawks, Louisville Cardinals, Arizona Wildcats, Arizona State Sun Devils, South Carolina Gamecocks and Iowa St. Cyclones.
If you projected a current starting five of: Jordan McCabe, Oscar Tshiebwe, Derek Culver, Jermaine Haley and Emmitt Matthews, you could argue Tucker would replace Haley as one of the starting five. This would give West Virginia a solid starting core for the 2019 season.
