West Virginia Transfer Joe Toussaint Includes Pitt in Top 3, Decision Coming July 4



Joe Toussaint

Jeff Capel’s Pitt Panthers appear to be in consideration for another top guard on the transfer market in Joe Toussaint.

Toussaint, who played for West Virginia last season, included the Panthers in his top three schools list on Monday night, along with Kansas State and Texas Tech, two schools which he visited in recent weeks.

Toussaint is a 6-foot guard out of the Bronx, N.Y., who has played four years of college hoops up until this point. To start off his career, Toussaint played three seasons in Iowa City for the Iowa Hawkeyes, averaging 6.5, 3.7, and 4.3 points per game as his career went on. After transferring to WVU ahead of last season, Toussaint posted the best numbers of his career, averaging over nine points per game despite only making one start.

Against Pitt, Toussaint had one of his best games of the season at the Petersen Events Center. There, he posted 18 points, hitting five of his 11 shot attempts and leading the Mountaineers to a dominant victory.

Toussaint recently entered the transfer portal following former head coach Bob Huggins’ DUI and subsequent resignation. After initially considering a return to West Virginia, Toussaint posted on Monday that he would not be returning to Morgantown. Hours later, Joe Tipton of On3 Sports announced that Toussaint included Pitt in his top three schools and that he will commit on Tuesday, July 4.
