WVU Lands MASSIVE Talent!

WVU Lands MASSIVE Talent!

Isaiah Cottrell,  a 4 star recruit and the 61st ranked overall ranked prospect in the 2020 class according to 247 Sports, just committed to West Virginia University!

Cottrell, a 6’10 210 pound power forward from Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, Nevada, was the top target for West Virginia in next year’s class.

Cottrell, who averaged 15.2 points, 9.3 rebounds and 4.3 blocked shots per game, was a first team selection on the All-USA Nevada basketball team according to USA Today.  He also led his team to its 8th consecutive state title this past season.  Cottrell is everything Mountaineer fans want in a player: he’s unselfish, he’s insanely gifted athletically, he rebounds, has a very high motor and most importantly he’s a winner.

Ultimately, his decision came down to West Virginia, Missouri, Rutgers and Kansas.  This is a massive get for Coach Huggins and West Virginia basketball.  Welcome home, Isaiah!
