Whatever will he do with it? He told me Tuesday the Mountaineers are recruiting Daxter Miles. He, like Tavon, is a Poet and plays for former WVU guard Cyrus Jones.
He can also hop.
Huggins also said WVU is recruiting Shadell Millinghaus, who played in eastern New York before prepping this year at Believe Prep, in Rock Hill, S.C.
It would appear Huggins has addressed the need for shooters with Remi Dibo and Jonathan Holton, albeit in a most unusual way that might just become the new normal. They also make WVU bigger and probably a better rebounding team — and if not, Elijah Macon and Devin Williams will lend a hand there.
Huggins hadn’t added a guard previously, which ought to lend some insight into his priorities, but he has an opportunity now.
I’m not so sure he needs or even wants a true point guard now as much as he needs and wants players who can get to the rim for easy scores and then grow and mature with time into players who can do more and, you know, make a jumper.
Miles sure looks like he can attack the rim and Millinghaus says he will.
So, all things equal, which is to say all players academically eligible and that Huggins hasn’t confessed to everyone he’s recruiting, how would you treat with this scholarship?
