Toussaint set official visit dates at K-State from Monday to Wednesday in Manhattan, and will then will fly to Lubbock for a Wednesday to Friday tour of Texas Tech.
While many suspected a possible return to West Virginia if the team settled on an interim head coach for the upcoming season in the absence of Bob Huggins, Toussaint is going to test out his other options despite the news of Josh Eilert’s promotion at West Virginia.
Toussaint was a key member of the Mountaineers’ backcourt last season averaging 9.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 2.6 assists per game on 37.4% shooting from the field. He saw action in all 36 games for West Virginia last season averaging 21.8 minutes per game.
With two members of the Scott Drew coaching tree duking it for Toussaint in K-State’s Jerome Tang and Texas Tech’s Grant McCasland, the pair will go toe-to-toe in the first recruiting battle of many. Both McCasland and Tang have brought in some key pieces in the transfer portal so far this offseason, and in the event that Joe Toussaint becomes a Wildcat or a Red Raider, the New York native would become the icing on top for two competitive teams in the Big 12.
