Bonner had not expressed any unhappiness with the program or his playing status, according to the head coach, who could potentially be without two centers next fall if Kevin Pittsnogle were to remain in the NBA Draft. Should that occur, the Mountaineers would enter the season with only transfer Robert Summers in the pivot.
"Obviously, our center would have to be Rob," Beilein said. "A backup is what we would have to try to find in the months ahead."
As is typically the case, Beilein looked at tghe positives of the situation.
"We have been able to attract very good transfers every year. There can be an upside to it for both Luke and ourselves."
