Incoming point guard Jabarie Hinds is not currently on the West Virginia campus, but is expected to arrive in August and be fully qualified.
“When he’s there in August he’ll be fully qualified,” Mount Vernon High coach Bob Cimmino told SNY.tv.
“I think he’s going to be a great player for West Virginia and they’ll see him in August.”
A Co-Mr. Basketball in New York State, Hinds posted 26 points, five rebounds, five assists and four steals to lead Mount Vernon to its record-ninth New York State state championship, 62-51, over Jamestown in March at the Glens Falls Civic Center.
