Taevon Horton, a walk-on for the WVU men’s basketball team, has entered the transfer portal and will not return to the program next season, according to a report from BlueGoldNews.com.
As a true freshman, the Fairmont Senior graduate saw action in 11 games for the Mountaineers and scored 10 points total.
At different times in the season Bob Huggins gave credit to Horton for his effort in practice. Before the Texas game he gave credit to Horton as “the only guy in the gym before practice.”
On The Bob Huggins Show, @CoachHuggs announced he plans to start a walk-on vs. Texas.
Huggins has questioned his team’s commitment recently, but said Fairmont native Taevon Horton has been “the only guy in the gym before practice.” He hopes to send a message to other players: pic.twitter.com/BNpNZADcys

With the recent influx of talent it’s very likely Horton is hoping to go somewhere he can get more playing time.
Good luck to Taevon Horton. Once a Mountaineer, always a Mountaineer.
