Former West Virginia basketball player Pat Suemnick is once again looking for a home to finish his collegiate career.

Suemnick hit the transfer portal in April and proceeded to spend two weeks searching for a new program before initially committing to DePaul under new head coach Chris Holtmann.

However, Suemnick took to social media site “X” on Thursday evening to announce that he was re-opening his recruitment, citing “careful consideration” with his family and mentors.

Suemnick is a 6-8, 235-pound athlete that can slide between the post and the wing, and he averaged 4.1 points and 2.6 rebounds per game while playing 14 minutes per game last season – that campaign was highlighted by a 20 point performance to pace an upset win over No. 3 Kansas.

Suemnick also spent time with Triton Community College before his stint in Morgantown, where he would play a significant role during an NJCAA Final Four run for the team, averaging 21.3 points per game during that season.

Suemnick’s power conference experience and potential as a versatile scorer will be sought after for teams still looking to piece together their roster. And while unlikely – certainly no rumors are circulating – many fans would love to see him join the new roster at WVU under incoming head coach Darian DeVries and give the program one more shot.
