CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Ye olde notebook:
But on Tuesday some of that intrigue was erased as the cleansing from last season continues.
Around 6 p.m., forward Keaton Miles announced via Twitter he'll be leaving the team.
"I Really Want To Thank WVU For All The Support & Love They Showed Me While I Was Here," Miles tweeted. "Once A Mountaineer Always a Mountaineer. Love All."
Thus, another domino has fallen.
If you follow this space, you already know West Virginia coaches have been zeroing in on adding a point guard. They've been recruiting point guards Daxter Miles of Dunbar High in Baltimore and Shadell Millinghaus of Believe Prep in Rock Hill, S.C.
Now, Mountaineer coach Bob Huggins has the scholarship to sign one. We'll see if one qualifies and pans out or if the coach goes elsewhere.
He's also looking ahead. In recent days, Huggins offered a scholarship to one of the nation's top upcoming juniors in Derrick Jones of Archbishop Carroll High in Radnor, Pa., near Philadelphia.
Jones is a 6-foot-6 lefty with an impressive wingspan who has been ranked as the No. 37 prospect of the 2015 class by Rivals and No. 13 by ESPN for his age group. He was a standout at the recent Pitt Hoop Group Jam Fest.
WVU will, however, have competition. Syracuse and Cincinnati, among others, have also offered and Jones has said he likes the Orange.
Both, however, are in Morgantown for summer school and have a busy summer lined up.
According to Huggins, Harris has been named to the NCAA's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and will attend a June meeting in Dallas. The committee is set up to provide the NCAA insight of experiences and offer input on rules, policies, etc.
