MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Bob Huggins has landed another big signee, essentially finalizing his 2021-22 roster.
James Okonkwo, a forward from Beckley Prep Academy, announced on Twitter Sunday that he has signed with the Mountaineers. Okonkwo was originally a 2023 prospect, but will now join WVU early and take a redshirt year after receiving an offer back in April.
Okonkwo is a 6-9 power forward who also held an offer from Rutgers. He plans to enroll at WVU this fall, according to a tweet. He becomes the seventh new addition to head coach Bob Huggins’ roster this offseason (three fifth-year transfers, four true freshmen).
