MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Former Texas forward Tre Mitchell has transferred to Big 12 foe West Virginia. Mountaineers coach Bob Huggins announced Mitchell’s signing Friday. The 6-foot-9 Mitchell averaged 8.7 points and four rebounds per game last season and started 17 games for the Longhorns. He made nearly 48% of his field goal attempts and 80% of his free throws. In February, Mitchell took what Texas called a personal leave of absence and didn’t play again. He entered the transfer portal in April. Mitchell is a Pittsburgh native who spent his first two seasons at UMass. He will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
