Jevon Carter returning to WVU for senior season
That would be great news!
While there is uncertainty, I've read that Macon will not return. IMO, that is not good news for the team. Macon might have earned my Most Improved Player last season... especially his play in the 2nd half of the year.
There is a big question mark hanging over Culver. Will he meet the NCAA eligibility guidelines.... will he go JUCO... go prep school? But as of now, we have 14 scholarship players for '17-18 and only 13 spots.
Huggs believes Konate's game is going to take a huge jump next season. If Macon is indeed gone, the fortunes will heavily rely on this happening. Because the other options at the 5... Bender and Culver... are both inexperienced.
Why would Macon be leaving?
Here's what I've read. Due to academics, he went to prep school for one year out of HS... he was still a non-qualifier... so he sat out his first year at WVU. He's 24 yrs old... he graduated last weekend.... and could get a pro job overseas. One more year at WVU ain't gonna make him attractive to the NBA.
There are supposedly similar academic issues for Culver. Not sure he will pass the NCAA clearinghouse.
