Teyvon Myers, a 6'2" guard from Brooklyn, New York has signed his officially signed his national letter of intent to play basketball for Coach Bob Huggins and West Virginia University in the upcoming 2015-2016 school year.

Myers comes to WVU from Williston State College in Williston, ND, where he was the leading JUCO scorer this past season at 25 ppg. His numbers are impressive, hitting over 45% of his shots from the field (including 36.7 from behid the arc) and over 85% from the charity stripe. Coming from the junior college circuit, Myers will have two years of eligibility with the Mountaineers.

Here's what Huggs had to say in the official release earlier today:

"Teyvon brings us much-needed offense as the leading scorer in junior college this past season with his ability to score in a multitude of ways," said Huggins. "He's accustomed to playing the pressing, up-and-down style that we want to play. It should shorten the timeline in his understanding of what we want done on both ends of the court. Teyvon gives us another ball-handler in the backcourt who can play both the point guard and wing positions."

Along with Myers, the 2015 class includes highly regarded & recruited forward Esa Ahmad and guard James Bolden.
