In his 8th season at WVU, Bob Huggins has shown us his eye for basketball talent. There is something that this incoming class could have that Huggins, one of the winningest coach in NCAA history, has never had in his time at WVU, a McDonalds All-American.
Esa Ahmad and James Bolden have both received nominations for the McDonalds All-American Game on April 3rd in Chicago. Ahmad, a 4 star senior PF from Shaker Heights High School in Cleveland, Ohio, is averaging 22.7 points and 11.2 rebounds per game. Ahmad is ranked the 43rd best player in the ESPN top 100 and is in contention for Ohio player of the Year. James Bolden, a 3 star point guard from Holmes High School in Covington, Kentucky, is averaging 20.8 points per game.
While we wait to see if they are selected to participate in the All-American game, the WVU basketball world can now see that Bob Huggins is no longer rebuilding WVU basketball, but rather reloading.
