Source: WVU Basketball to Add Former Marshall Forward

Multiple sources, including Jon Martin of, have verified that former Marshall forward TyQuane Goard will join the WVU basketball program as a walk-on this coming season.

Goard was dismissed from the Herd program last October by Marshall head coach Dan D’Antoni citing violation of team rules and policies. However, there was never any elaboration as to what exactly transpired to garner the dismissal.

The 6’7 forward is originally from Charleston, WV and will be entering his final season of eligibility. Goard started 16 games last season for the Herd before his dismissal. He started his collegiate career at Ohio University before transferring to Marshall in 2012.

WVU lost forward BillyDee Williams after he announced he would be transferring. WVU walk-on Chase Conner also announced after the season he would be transferring.
