Nathan Adrian is now a professional basketball player in France and is off to a great start! Adrian, a 6’9 forward out of Morgantown, averaged 10.6 points, 6.4 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game as a Senior for the Mountaineers during the 2016-2017 season on the 28-9 team that advanced to the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament.
Adrian most recently played with the team made up of former West Virginia players called “Best Virginia” in The Basketball Tournament. Although “Best Virginia” was beaten in the second round of the Tournament, it led to Adrian signing a professional contract in France.
If anything came out of this tbt thing at least we got Nate a offer to play overseas …played great in the little bit of time he had and impressed a few coaches to get his pro career started! #wvnation #proudbigbro
