2016 basketball commits Maciej Bender and Chase Harler have signed their national letters of intent during the early signing period that runs from November 11 to November 18, per WVUsports.com
Bender, a 6'10 power forward from Warsaw, Poland, committed to West Virginia last month. Harler, a 6'3 guard from Moundsville, WV, committed last year before his junior season began.
The two celebrated by congratulating each other on Twitter:
Congrats to my future teammate on signing today! @Maciej_Bender #WVU— Chase Harler (@ChaseHarler4) November 11, 2015
Congratulations to my boy @ChaseHarler4 for signing LOI #WVU— Maciej Bender (@Maciej_Bender) November 11, 2015
Harler and Bender are joined in the 2016 by Sagaba Konate, a 6'8 power forward from Hermitage, Pennsylvania. Konate is reportedly signing his letter of intent on Friday.
You don't hear of basketball recruits flipping commitments anywhere near as much as football recruits, but it has to please Huggins to know his guys are locked in and completely committed to the program.
Bender is a 4 star recruit according to ESPN, while Harler and Konate are 3 stars.
