WVU's Basketball recruiting class of 2016 is now complete with four players signing their letter of intent to play for Coach Bob Huggins and the Mountaineers. The final piece of the puzzle was announced Friday when Sagaba Konate of Mali (played HS ball in Hermitage, PA, plus AAU ball here in the States) signed with WVU.

Here's Huggins take on Konate:

"Sagaba certainly brings much-needed size and tremendous athleticism to our frontcourt," said Huggins. "He has been one of the better shot blockers on the AAU circuit this summer. His offensive skills continue to grow on a daily basis. He is a very large forward with great hands who has tremendous potential." - (WVU press release)

WVU had previously announced the signings of Maciej Bender And Chase Harler on Wednesday then Brandon Knapper on Thursday. The early signing period ends next Wednesday, November 18, but no more signings are expected for WVU.
