  • West Virginia Recruit Say Move Doesn’t Matter

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    West Virginia has three pledged basketball commits for 2012, and at least one of them says it doesn’t matter to him which league he ends up competing in.

    “I really don’t pay attention to the conference changes,” Elijah Macon, a 6-foot-9 power forward from Huntington (West Va.) Prep, told SNY.tv by text. “I really look at what I’m going to do when I get to the program.”

    Macon is headed to West Virginia for 2012 along with Eron Harris, a 6-3 shooting guard from Lawrence (Ind.) North, and Terry Henderson, a 6-5 shooting guard from Raleigh (N.C.) Neuse Baptist Christian School.

    For 2013, the Mounties also have commits from 6-8 forward Nate Adrian of Morgantown High and 6-10 center Brandon Watkins of Atlanta Grady.

    It remains unclear when West Virginia — which won its first Big East tournament title in 2010 — will actually begin play in the Big 12.

    The Big 12 says it expects the Mounties to join for the 2012-13 season, while Big East Commissioner John Marinatto said he intends to make the school wait for the full 27-month exit period.
