WVU Hoops Enrollees Coming To Campus


MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins expects all but one of the newcomers to the WVU basketball program to be on campus very soon for summer classes, and notes that the value of that early experience might lie more in their exposure to former Mountaineers, who come back to work on their game in preparation for their upcoming pro seasons.

“I think  the best thing is having all these former guys around,” Huggins said as he began his Bob Huggins Fantasy Camp, which includes some of those as team coaches. “They probably do a better job preparing them. They’ve been through it. They sell it better than I ever could.”

The summer grouping will be the first chance to get the recruiting class together and see what they can do, even in a limited setting.

“I want to see the guys play,” Huggins emphasized. “It’s a lot different watching them on the AAU circuit.”

Huggins also noted that the news of Sagaba Konate returning to WVU played out as he anticipated.

“I was doing a deal in Hilton Head and a guy came over and congratulated me on [Konate returning], but it really didn’t change from the start. Sags came in and said he wanted to go experience it and see what it was like and what they were looking for.  He said from the beginning if he wasn’t a first rounder he wasn’t leaving. He was very firm in that.”

    All but 1 of the new guys in the 2nd session. Is that Matthews? He hasn’t graduated yet and I think it was said he’d be here the end of June.

    Is there a list of former players coming back to work out for the summer?

    The graduation for Matthews at his high school in Tacoma isn’t until June 9. He is supposed to be at WVU for the summer school session that begins June 25.
