WVU has already landed four-star stud Isaiah Cottrell out of Vegas as part of the class of 2020. But it appears Bob Huggins may be just getting started.
There’s another four-star player who happened to go to high school just a quick trip down I-79 from Morgantown. Fairmont Senior Polar Bear Jalen Bridges holds an offer from West Virginia and took to Twitter to make an announcement that he plans to commit on Halloween.
I will be committing on Halloween 👻

Just days ago Bridges announced his final five. It just so happened to be missing WVU’s rivals to the north.

A great case can be made that the class of 2019 will be Bob Huggins’ best class at West Virginia. And now he’s knocking on the door of making the class of 2020 even better. With Cottrell already committed and the Mountaineers in prime position to land a commitment from Bridges, that could definitely happen.
Then there’s Jaemyn Brakefield, another four-star prospect. And he just so happens to be Cottrell’s teammate at Huntington Prep this season.
