Much ado was made about Bob Huggins landing Oscar Tshiebwe, the first McDonald’s All-American of his run at West Virginia. And rightfully so. He’s certainly going to step in and contribute right away. But Miles “Deuce” McBride is creating a buzz all across college basketball.
If you don’t believe me, just do a quick search of Twitter for “Miles McBride.”

Trending: Is Neal Brown into lite tanking?
If you watched the games WVU played over the summer in Spain, it was easy to notice that as someone just months ago from graduating high school, Deuce is a man. He came in with a body that is ready to contribute in the Bob Huggins system. He gets after it on defense. Also, he’s very solid with the ball and has a beautiful stroke from deep.
Fran Fraschilla has taken notice of the freshman guard. A recurring theme is that McBride gets it done on both ends of the court.
The @WVUhoops staff has been raving about 6-2 freshman guard from Cincinnati Moeller, @deucemcb11 for weeks. Now I get it. He has an “it factor,” winning DNA & plays both ends of court. He’ll help immediately.
