Kevin Jones to West Virginia

By Bill Hodge - November 14, 2007

# Top 100 forward Kevin Jones of Mount Vernon, NY., rated No. 66 overall in Class 2008, is headed to West Virginia over Indiana and Pittsburgh. Among others were UMass, Seton Hall, Rutgers and St. John's.

Van Coleman:
Thoughts on Jones' commitment: "This is a big get for West Virginia. It puts them in the New York market with Jones and Darryl Bryant having committed, and it's something they need to do in order to get done what Bob Huggins wants to get done. And that's get his traditional tough players. Jones gives them a go-to player for the future. Right now he's a mid-to-late Top 100 kid, but he could be a draft choice after 3-4 years of college. He's tough, he goes to the boards, and he has a much improved perimeter game."

On West Virginia's class ranking: "This moves WVU looking closer into the Top 25, or in the "Near Misses" category of our National Ranking. It moves them up from the No. 9 spot in the Big East and into either the No. 6, 7 or 8 spots with Rutgers and Pitt."
