According to NBC Sports and numerous other sources, West Virginia redshirt freshman Forward Pat Forsythe will be the newest member of the Akron Zips men's basketball team. Forsythe, who hails from Brunswick, Ohio, is reportedly transferring to be closer to home. He may be able to obtain a hardship waiver to play right away because of his father's apparent health issues. If he can play this year, the Zips would have essentially two seven footers (Forsythe is 6'11') at their disposal. Forsythe averaged two points in seven games as a Mountaineer.
