2015 WVU basketball commit Teyvon Myers has yet to step foot on campus and the concern is growing.
Myers, a highly talented shooting guard out of Williston State College (ND), committed to West Virginia on March 3rd of this year choosing the Mountaineers over Rick Pitino and the University of Louisville. After leading the JUCO ranks in scoring last season at just over 25 ppg Teyvon chose the Mountaineer program due to his relationship with assistant coach Larry Harrison and how the Mountaineer program promotes a family atmosphere.
Unfortunately Myers has yet to join that family. Coach Bob Huggins said Monday during his press conference that “They were working on it” regarding the status of Myers. Who “they” are is unclear though. Huggins went on to say that Teyvon was originally expected to be on campus in early August.
Myers’ absence has put him behind the rest of the 2015 class who has been practicing together for a month as well as playing in the Bahamas this past week. Huggins went on to state that if Myers is not cleared to join the program soon he would expect to see him in December where he would redshirt for the 2015-2016 season stating, “he’s missed alot already”.
Myers graduated from Williston State College in May and was expected to be a scoring threat for the Mountaineers this coming season.
