The shooting woes of the 2015 WVU basketball team are very well documented by anyone that follows the Mountaineers and has left Bob Huggins searching for answers. After the Mountaineers gut-wrenching loss to Baylor in the Big 12 Tournament, Bob Huggins may have gotten the answer that he had been searching for, in JUCO shooting guard Teyvon Myers.
Myers, the leading scorer in JUCO basketball and #2 ranked shooting guard in the country, committed to the Mountaineers as part of their 2015 recruiting class. After watching the Mountaineers get defeated by Baylor, Myers called the Mountaineers coaching staff and informed them of his decision to commit. Myers was on campus this past weekend for the senior finale against Oklahoma State and was scheduled to visit Louisville this weekend but has since cancelled that trip. Myers said that the atmosphere at WVU was a big selling point for the Mountaineers but not the biggest. Myers took note of the way that the basketball team is like a big family and that stood out to Myers enough for him to commit to WVU. Myers also stated that his relationship with assistant coach Larry Harrison was another big factor in making this decision.
Myers, who attends Williston State, is currently averaging 25 PPG while shooting 45% from the field, and 37% from 3. Myers is scheduled to graduate from his school in May and plans to enroll at WVU this summer to get things started for next season. He says that he wants to bring a national championship to WVU and believes next year is looking very bright to make that wish come true.
