INSIDE THE WEST VIRGINIA MOUNTAINEERS' CLASS

Who they have: Even a novice could put two and two together and figure out coach Bob Huggins' plan of attack for this recruiting class. Deniz Kilicli exhausts his eligibility this season, and next fall Huggins will have plenty of candidates to choose from in replacing him. The two best candidates for early playing time are both Ohio natives. Elijah Macon committed to WVU last year but failed to make the grade and spent a year at prep school. Devin Williams picked the Mountaineers over Memphis and Ohio State. Williams is a beast on the glass and is wired perfectly for a Huggins inside player. Macon has more upside offensively and is the better athlete. Both certainly could play off each other. The Mountaineers also brought in 6-foot-9 center Brandon Watkins and didn't venture far for Nathan Adrian, a 6-foot-7 product of nearby Morgantown High. After that solid haul in the fall, this spring Huggins has added a pair of juco products to the mix in power forward Jonathan Holton and small forward Remi Dibo. As we said, the man is going to have options.

Who they want: With a pair of spring juco signees, expect West Virginia to be done in the 2013 class and move on to 2014 and beyond.
