Redshirt freshman James "Beetle" Bolden seems to be recovering nicely from last season's injury.

Before the 2015-16 season began for the West Virginia men's basketball team, freshman James "Beetle" Bolden tore his ACL in practice and was ruled out for the entire year.

That injury happened almost seven months ago, and now Bolden looks to be healing nicely. He recently shared a video on Twitter showing off his regained athleticism:

That's certainly good to see, as Bolden will be counted on to provide some minutes at the point guard position this upcoming season. Before the injury, Bolden played with his fellow Mountaineers in their exhibition games in the Bahamas and averaged nearly 11 points per game. Bob Huggins told reporters that Bolden made the best decisions in transition of any of his guards, and he told Tony Caridi in a separate interview with Sportsline that Bolden had been their most consistent outside shooter.
