    Keaton Miles, a 6-foot-7, 190-pound small forward from Dallas Lincoln, became the fourth player to commit to West Virginia in the last three days.

    Miles follows Mount Vernon (N.Y.) point guard Jabarie Hinds, who committed on SNY.tv, Aurora, Ill,. point guard Ryan Boatright and Cleveland big man Pat Forsythe.

    The Mounties, picked No. 5 in the Big East Preseason Coaches’ poll, previously landed Aaron Brown, a 6-5 small forward from Landsdowne (Pa.) Penn Wood, and Tommie McCune, a 6-7 power forward from Saginaw, Mich.

    “The Big East was a place where I thought I could develop as a person, player and student,” Miles said by text. “I was very comfortable with coach Bob Huggins. He has been very successful with the Dallas guys.”

    Hinds and Miles talked about committing together and Miles said he’s looking forward to playing with Hinds.

    “He has seen a couple of my mix tapes and he told me at our visit if I was to come and commit he would, and I told him I had to check with my family and he had to do the same,” Miles said. “We just clicked because we are just two determined kids ready to work hard for a national championship.”

    Said Hinds: “Yeah, most definitely. He’s a tough player.”

    With six commits in the fold, West Virginia is now down with recruiting for 2011.
