Sean McNeil to test NBA Draft process, Jordan McCabe to transfer

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — WVU junior guard Sean McNeil is entering the NBA Draft process, with the possibility of returning for his senior season. McNeil made the announcement on his twitter site Tuesday afternoon.

McNeil flourished in his second season in a Mountaineer uniform. He started 23 of 29 games, doubling his minutes per game from his sophomore season. The Union, Ky. native averaged 12.2 points per game and drained 69 three-pointers. McNeil led the Mountaineers with 23 points (7-15 from three-point range) in WVU’s NCAA second round loss to Syracuse on Sunday.

McNeil can go through the entire NBA Draft process of team workouts and interviews but could still return to Morgantown. The date for the draft and pre-draft timelines have not yet been finalized.

Guard Jordan McCabe is set to leave WVU after his junior season. McCabe played in 94 games over the course of three seasons at West Virginia. He started 29 of 31 games as a sophomore but his minutes have decreased in each season. McCabe averaged 10.9 minutes and 2.2 points per game in his junior season.

Due to the additional year of eligibility as a result of the pandemic, McCabe will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
