"Our staff saw Jevon in July and all four of us fell in love with him," says Huggins. "He has the ability to score as well as run your team. Jevon definitely has a great knack of getting his hands in the passing lanes and deflecting balls He reminds us in some ways of former Mountaineer Truck Bryant."
