Bob Huggins received a verbal commitment for the 2013 season Saturday when Devin Williams made the call to become a Mountaineer.

Williams, a 6-foot-8 center preparing for his senior season at Montverde Academy (Fla.), sided with West Virginia after taking visits to Ohio State and Memphis in recent weeks.

Williams is rated as a 4-star recruit according to He is likely to play power forward at the collegiate level.

Huggins and his staff have been high on Williams over the years and kept in close contact with him since his days growing up in the Cincinnati, Ohio area. Williams transferred to Montverde prior to his senior season after playing at Withrow High School in Cincinnati.

Earlier this year, Williams played in Morgantown as a part of the Withrow team, which was part of the Hoops Fest during the summer. WVU assistant coach Erik Martin was at University High School at the time to see Williams play.

The Mountaineer staff's loyalty throughout the recruiting process is one of the reasons Williams pointed to when describing his interest in the program.

Williams is likely to sign with WVU during the early signing period coming up later this month on Nov. 14. He joins three other commits, including Morgantown forward Nathan Adrian, Atlanta center Brandon Watkins and a member of last season's recruiting class, forward Elijah Macon.
