MORGANTOWN — It’s official: Former Arkansas forward Gabe Osabuohien has transferred to West Virginia.

West Virginia coach Bob Huggins announced the transfer of Osabuohien on Wednesday. He will have two years of eligibility remaining. The Gazette-Mail announced Osabuohien’s decision to come to WVU on Monday.

Arkansas coach Eric Musselman dismissed Osabuohien from the Razorbacks last week without disclosing the reason. The 6-foot-8 Osabuohien played in 54 games with eight starts in two seasons with Arkansas. He averaged 2.4 points and 2.5 rebounds per game over his career.

Huggins says Osabuohien “can come in and can make an immediate impact to our team defensively.”
