Former West Virginia guard Joe Toussaint has Pitt in final three

Pitt is still in on getting a player from their rival

NCAA Basketball: West Virginia at Iowa State Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports

Jeff Capel and the Pittsburgh Panthers continue to look to add talent to the roster and one of the top guards in the transfer portal is considering crossing enemy lines. Former West Virginia guard Joe Toussaint has Pitt in his final three, joining Kansas State and Texas Tech according to Joe Tipton of On3.

Toussaint is from Brooklyn, New York, and spent his first three college seasons with the Iowa Hawkeyes. Toussaint transferred to Morgantown and put together his best season averaging 9.4 points per game coming off the bench. After Bob Huggins resigned after being arrested for a DUI, Toussaint entered the transfer portal for a fresh start.

Pitt had an up-close view of Toussaint in what ended up being an embarrassing loss and coincidentally one of the best games of the season for the West Virginia guard. Toussaint dropped 18 points on the Panthers to go along with 5 assists and four rebounds.

Toussaint would be a boost to the depth of the guard room coming off the losses of Nelly Cummings, Nike Sibande, and Greg Elliott. The room added Rhode Island transfer Ishmael Leggett to go along with incoming freshman Jaland Lowe and redshirt freshman Dior Johnson. Toussaint will make his commitment on the Fourth of July.
