Press Release: Huggins Announces Signing

teyvon myersMORGANTOWN, W.Va. (April 16, 2015) – West Virginia University basketball coach Bob Huggins has announced the signing of Teyvon Myers to a national letter of intent for the 2015-16 academic year.

Myers, a 6-foot-2 guard from Brooklyn, New York, currently attends Williston State College in Williston, North Dakota. He will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Myers was the leading scorer in junior college at 25.0 points per game on 45.4 percent shooting from the field in 2014-15. He shot 36.7 percent (77-of-210) from 3-point range and 85.2 percent (195-of-229) from the free throw line. Myers averaged 4.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game, and recorded 46 steals in 30 games.

Myers reached double figures in every game and had a season-high 55 points in a triple-overtime game at North Dakota State College of Science. He had 22 games of 20 points or more and seven games with 30 or more points.

Playing for coach Cory Fehringer at Williston, Myers started 28 of 30 contests and led Williston to a school-record 25 regular season wins and a national ranking of No. 14. He was named an Honorable Mention All-American by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) and was tabbed to the Region 13 Division I NJCAA All-Region Team.

Myers previously attended Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria, California, where he averaged 26.5 points per game. He shot 44.1 percent from the field, 37.0 percent (44-of-119) from 3-point range and 84.0 percent (131-of-156) from the free throw line. Myers attended high school at Grover Cleveland High School in Reseda, California and Boys & Girls High School in New York City.

“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.”

Myers joins Esa Ahmad, a 6-foot-8 forward from Shaker Heights, Ohio, and James “Beetle” Bolden, a 6-foot guard from Covington, Kentucky, in the 2015-16 recruiting class.
