MORGANTOWN -

Kevin Jones is busy traveling around the country and visiting NBA teams. He hopes to crack the first round of next month's NBA draft. His college career is over and what a great one it was.

Three new Mountaineers will join the team this summer. Those three players are Terry Henderson, Eron Harris and Elijah Macon.

Bob Huggins recently talked with WVi about those three players and what he expects out of them at WVU.

Terry Henderson – Shooting Guard

Raleigh, NC

6'3" 150 Lbs.


"He makes shots," Huggins said. "That's what we want Terry to come in and do for us, is make shots. He's athletic. His drawback right now is that he is 175 pounds and he probably needs to be 190 pounds. He is athletic, a great kid and has a great family. He is going to carry on in the Jabarie Hinds, Kevin Jones, Da'Sean Butler mold of a guy who continues to get better and better and better and continues to work." 

Eron Harris – Shooting Guard

Indianapolis, IN

6'3" 180 Lbs. 

"Aaron may be the most prepared guy," Huggins stated. "He played great competiton, had great coaching and could do a little bit of everything. If you said, what can he do best I am not sure. He does everything pretty good. He can play some point and play the two. He is going to guard, going to rebound, he is long and passes the ball well and understands how to play."

Elijah Macon – Power Forward

Huntington, WV

6'8" 210 Lbs.

"We're losing some bigs and we need some guys to come in and learn and be ready to go and Elijah is, according to about everybody, one of the better bigs in the country. He is a guy who has a tremendous upside, he has not reached where he is going to be, he has a tremendous upside."
