So far in the Mountaineers’ 2022 recruiting cycle, Bob Huggins and West Virginia University have signed three recruits, all of which are three-star players, and are sitting firmly at No. 46 in the nation and No. 7 in the Big 12 conference.

Huggins has already signed all three players in the class, including two forwards and one guard. This off-season, Huggins will also need to hit the transfer portal if he wants West Virginia’s recent slump to come to an end.

Here are the Mountaineers’ commits so far in the 2022 recruiting class (per 247Sports):

Three-star recruit | National No. 151 | Position No. 28 | State (OH) rank No. 4 | Rating: 0.9216

While this class is nothing to be in awe of just yet, the use of the transfer portal and some development coaching from Bob Huggins could easily see this class spark into something special at WVU.

The Mountaineers currently have no commits in the 2023 class or beyond. Expect Bob Huggins and his staff to begin recruiting ahead once this season comes to a close.
