Fourth recruit signs LOI

West Virginia University basketball coach Bob Huggins has announced that Devin Williams has signed a national letter of intent for the 2013-14 academic year.
 
Williams, a 6-foot-8, 230-pound forward from Cincinnati, Ohio, currently attends Montverde Academy in Montverde, Fla. Last year, he attended Withrow High in Cincinnati, playing for coach Tyrone Gilbert. Williams averaged 15.2 points, 10.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game as a junior, earning All-Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference First Team honors and was a Cincinnati Enquirer Division I All-Area selection. As a sophomore, he averaged 13.0 points and 10.6 rebounds, earning All-CMAC honorable mention honors. He is ranked as the 11th-best center by Rivals, 21st-best power forward by Scout and 22nd-best power forward by ESPN in this year’s class. A Rivals and Scout 4 star, he is ranked as a Top 100 player in this year’s senior class by ESPN, Scout and Rivals. Williams played AAU basketball for the Ohio Basketball Club. He chose West Virginia over Ohio State, Memphis, UCLA and NC State.
 
“Devin not only brings a great amount of size but an unusual amount of physicality for a player coming out of high school,” says Huggins. “Devin should be one of the rare freshmen who will not have to make the physical adjustments that most freshmen have to make. He’s a tremendous rebounder and interior player.”
 
Williams joins Nathan Adrian (Morgantown, W.Va./Morgantown HS), Elijah Macon (Columbus, Ohio/Brewster Academy) and Brandon Watkins (Decatur, Ga./Grady HS) in the 2013-14 recruiting class.
 
“Obviously, we are very excited about this class,” says Huggins. We’ve recruited a great shooter with size and three interior players that we truly need, given that we are losing the majority of our interior players after this season. We fully believe this is an outstanding class.”

Josh Bell had not hit a walk-off home run since he was a member of the Altoona Curve in 2015. He changed that Friday with a soaring shot for the left field loonies.
