Huggins adds third recruit


Today, Coach Bob Huggins has added a third recruit to next season’s class.

Darrious Curry has signed with WVU to be a part of the basketball team. Curry, a native of Houston, Texas coming from Stratford High School, is a 6’7″, 200 lb forward that has been described as a “very good rebounder,” according to ESPN. While at Stratford, Curry averaged 19 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists per game.

Coach Huggins described Curry as someone who “…fills a void that we have at small forward with the losses of Da’Sean (Butler) and Devin (Ebanks). We lost all of our size on the wing and our size is critical to our success. We wanted to add more size to our perimeter.”

Curry transferred to Stratford for his senior year after playing the previous three seasons at Elsik High in Houston. He averaged 10 points as a freshman, 20 points as a sophomore and 15 points as a junior. Curry also ran track at Elsik, taking first place in the high jump and triple jump at the district meet. He was a McDonald’s All-America finalist and earned first team all-District 18-5A (wow, Texas IS big) honors for three consecutive years.

Curry joins Noah Cottrill (Logan High, Logan, W.Va.) and David Nyarsuk (Mountain State Academy, Beckley, W.Va., native of Juba, Sudan) as signees for the 2010-11 season. Welcome aboard, Darrious! Mountaineer Nation is glad to have you, and enjoy your stay.
