Miles averaged 16 points, seven rebounds and four assists, according to Jones. The problem is qualifying.
"Some things we're waiting on," said the coach. "He's right there though."
Millinghaus is apparently in the same boat. A 6-2, 200-pound product originally from Schenectady, N.Y., Millinghaus has been attending Believe Prep in Rock Hill, S.C.
South Carolina has been on the point guard, as well as teammate Leroy Flood. Millinghaus has, however, visited WVU. As with Miles, patience may be the key.
"They really like South Carolina," said Believe coach Tyson Waterman to Palmetto Sports back in March. "But they want to look at a couple of things. And Shadell is still working on some academic stuff."
He was named a first-team Class AA all-state basketball selection. And not only that, he was named the first-team captain after averaging 25.9 points for the Highlanders.
Now, though, Morris' popularity in Webster Springs will absolutely skyrocket. The reason: He's been accepted as a walk-on for Huggins.
Webster County's population: 9,143. Think Morris is The Man there?
Some might wonder why WVU's Huggins stuck his neck out by signing Holton, perhaps the surest impact recruit, but also the riskiest.
The Palm Beach State product and former Rhode Island starter is still trying to resolve charges of video voyeurism. The word is, he'll plead guilty to a third-degree felony charge, which will include a 12-month supervised probation. Some of that will be shaved by time served.
So why didn't Huggins and WVU just wait until the matter was resolved? The court date, after all, is May 29. Why not wait until afterward to sign the player? Why take on more criticism and heat by signing him beforehand?
It's simple. One, WVU coaches consider Holton to be an immediate impact player. And two, he's a player the coaches feared would get away had they waited.
You might have heard Holton was also being recruited by Memphis, Maryland and Southern Miss. But there apparently was a more imminent threat: Florida.
There's always a story behind every story.
