Elijah Macon to skip senior season and go pro


NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-West Regional Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

As speculated for most of this month, Elijah Macon announced today that he plans to sign with an agent and forgo his senior season at WVU.

He averages 6.3 points and 4.2 rebounds a game during this past season and was always known for his physical play.

We will also remember him always yelling “AND ONE!!” whenever he possibly can.

He also had one of the strangest non-baskets of all time on January 31 in Ames.

While this may be seen as losing yet another big man too early (cough-cough, Devin Williams), it actually helps Bob Huggins because now WVU is at the maximum scholarship limit. If Macon had stayed, the Mountaineers would have probably lost a commit.

The NBA Draft will take place on June 22 at 7:00 PM ET at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and will air on ESPN.
