"Anytime Bob Cimmino compares you in the same breath as Ben Gordon, it certainly says a lot," said Huggins. "Jabarie gives us the ability to penetrate opposing defenses and create for himself or his teammates.''
Brown is from Penn Wood High School in Lansdowne, Pa. As a junior, Brown averaged 18.7 points and 6.5 rebounds per game and is ranked as the 27th-best small forward by Scout.com, the 29th-best small forward by ESPN.com and a three-star player by Rivals.
"Aaron will hopefully give us toughness and perimeter defense," Huggins said of the left-hander. "He is a guy who loves to play basketball and is constantly in the gym. Aaron also should give us consistent perimeter shooting. He should fill a void on the wing with the losses of Casey Mitchell and Jonnie West."
McCune is a 6-8, 200-pound forward from Saginaw, Mich., who is ranked No. 20 at his position by Rivals.com and No. 100 overall in the 2011 class. Scout.com has McCune as the 26th-best power forward while ESPN.com has him ranked No. 24. McCune is also listed as a four-star player by Rivals.
As a junior, McCune averaged 22 points, 11 rebounds, four assists and three blocked shots for Saginaw High. He played AAU basketball for Team Pride and averaged 44 points and 20 rebounds in July.
"Tommie is another guy with an exciting upside," said Huggins. "His length and perimeter skills will remind Mountaineer fans of Devin Ebanks. Tommie will add a tremendous boost to our overall team length and athleticism. He's a big-width guy with outstanding perimeter skills."
Miles, a 6-foot-6, 200-pound small forward, is from Dallas' Lincoln High. As a junior he averaged 13.5 points and 12 rebounds per game in helping Lincoln to a 28-4 record. He is as the 39th-best player at his position by ESPN.com and the 34th-best at his position by Rivals.com. He is ranked No. 17 in the state by TexasHoops.com.
"Keaton is from the storied Dallas Lincoln High basketball program," said Huggins. "He will add immediate size and athleticism. His strengths are attacking the basket and at the defensive end. He is another player who loves being in the gym, and we expect him to show tremendous improvement each year because of his love for the game. Keaton is from a basketball family - his father and uncle were major Division I players.''
Forsythe, meanwhile, appears to be the project in the group. A 6-10, 210-pound center from Brunswick, Ohio, he played the first 12 games of his junior season in a brace while he recovered from a fractured vertebra. He went on to average five points, seven rebounds and nearly three blocks a game on a team that finished with a 17-5 record. Still, he is rated as a three-star prospect by Rivals and is ranked as the 54th-best center by ESPN.com.
"Pat has tremendous upside," said Huggins. "The longer the recruiting process went on, more and more of the big name schools started coming to Brunswick. He runs the floor extremely well, has outstanding lateral quickness and has very effective footwork in the post. Obviously, he needs to improve his strength and gain some weight, but he really has an exciting upside."
