Tajzmel “Taz” Sherman is officially a Mountaineer. Sherman chose West Virginia over Utah, SMU, Texas Tech, Cincinnati and Oklahoma State.
Sherman averaged 25.9 points, 4.8 assists and 4.8 rebounds for Collin Community College in Texas. He shot 39% from 3-point range and 87% from the foul line.
What was once a glaring weakness on the Mountaineer roster is suddenly a strength with the additions of Sean McNeil and Tajzmel Sherman. The two new additions will seemingly be in competition against each other for the starting shooting guard position.
Taz teased that he would be making his announcement today at 4 p.m. CST.
