… I didn’t say Elijah Macon and/or Jonathan Holton wouldn’t make it for the 2013-14 season. For all I know, one or both will. I

If you thought it might take a day, Holton & Macon not in WVU student directory. WVU says no changes to hoops roster. Both have till Friday.le

Translation: If you thought neither player was in the student directory Monday because maybe one or both enrolled Monday and so did many others and it would take time to process one or both with all the others, well, neither Elijah Macon nor Jonathan Holton were in the directory Tuesday. To reinforce that observation, WVU said there were no changes (Read: additions) to its roster. One or both can enroll as late as Friday afternoon.
For some reason, that’s getting twisted into “Not gonna happen!”
Not what I said!
I have no top secret insight here. I’m going on, like I said, observation and reinforcement — or contradiction. Either is acceptable.
Now, what’s the directory worth? It’s a very reliable, though by no means absolute, indication that a player is good to go. I say this because Darrien L. Howard, from Dayton, Ohio, is new to the system today. I’m waiting on a confirmation from WVU on that one, as well as what might be d’Vante Henry’s return. If Howard is in, then every one of WVU’s 2013 recruits made it to campus, which is phenomenal.
