South Carolina Transfer Erik Stevenson Visiting West Virginia

NCAA Basketball: West Virginia at Texas Tech

South Carolina transfer Erik Stevenson is visiting West Virginia on Friday night, the former Gamecocks forward announced on social media.

The Mountaineers are just one of several teams that have reportedly shown interest in Stevenson since he decided to transfer.

Per Jake Weingarten of, Stevenson has had conversations with Arkansas, West Virginia, Creighton, Auburn, Clemson, Ole Miss and Pittsburgh.


Stevenson is a graduate transfer who played all 31 games for the Gamecocks last season and averaged 11.6 points and 4.7 rebounds per game. He also led South Carolina with 60 made 3-pointers.

If Stevenson lands with a different school, it will be the fourth college of his career. He started playing at Wichita State before transferring to Washington. After the Huskies, Stevenson transferred to South Carolina. Based on his four-year career he would have one year of eligibility remaining. But, as a graduate transfer, it’s unlikely he would need a waiver to play next season.

The Mountaineers have six scholarships to offer this cycle. They’ve already lost guards Taz Sherman and Sean McNeil to eligibility, along with forward Gabe Osabuohein. Forwards Jalen Bridges and Isaiah Cottrell have also entered the transfer portal, which means the Mountaineers will be without their top four scorers next season.
