From ESPN Recruiting blog:

Anyone questioning whether Bob Huggins can take West Virginia to the highest level needs to look at his latest recruiting accomplishment. Just a month ago, the Mountaineers were hardly considered as a possible school for multi-talented 6-7 forward Kevin Jones (Mount Vernon, N.Y.). Today, Jones sent his signed letter of intent to West Virginia. Jones, rated No. 42 nationally by ESPN, chose the Mountaineers over Pittsburgh.

His signing gives West Virginia three ESPN 150 rated recruits and should elevate their class into the top 25. Earlier, Indiana was considered one of the favorites for Jones. However, with its recent recruiting violations and the resignation of assistant coach Rob Senderoff, a New Yorker who was the Hoosiers primary recruiter for Jones, its chances were definitely hurt.

The West Virginia class now includes No. 97 rated, 6-2 G Darryl "Truck" Bryant (Bronx, N.Y./St. Raymond) and rapid-rising big man, No. 103 rated, 6-10 C Roscoe Davis (Chatham, Va./Hargrave Military Academy). -- Bob Gibbons
