A Look At the West Virginia Mountaineers' 2013 Recruiting Class

The West Virginia Mountaineers had a horrible season. Bob Huggins usually coaches his teams to good records, but a 13-19 record was far from that in the 2012-13 college basketball season. Luckily, the incoming crop of freshmen are looking pretty good, so let’s go ahead and take a look at them.

West Virginia will be getting two 4-stars, two 3-stars and two JUCO players. That is a lot of players that will be joining the team and who knows, they could make an impact next season. Hopefully that is the case, considering how bad the Mountaineers were. Three of these players are top 100 recruits, according to ESPN.

The Mountaineers were pretty much an all-around bad team this year. The had trouble scoring, they couldn’t rebound and the list goes on and on.

West Virginia is not going to stay bad for long though. The reason for that is because of Huggins. He is too good of a coach for his team to stay bad, hence the good recruiting class coming in.

It is always tough to analyze what impact incoming freshmen will have on the team and next year’s West Virginia recruiting class will be no different. However, there will be plenty of talent coming in, so new faces could be taking the court to start the season.

Including the returning players and the six incoming freshmen, Huggins will have a lot to work with and he will put together the best team possible. This team may not win the Big 12, but it will likely be much better than this past year’s team.
