Macon to head to prep school

It is going to take Elijah Macon a little bit longer than planned to enroll at West Virginia.

For Elijah Macon the hope was he would be in Morgantown, West Virginia right now as a member of the 2012 class. However the former Huntington (WV) Prep standout now will do a post-grad year.

At 6-foot-8 and 240 pounds, Macon was considered the gem of West Virginia's 2012 recruiting class, and someone who would be an immediate contributor as they made their move to the Big XII.

However West Virginia fans will have to wait a little bit longer before watching the Columbus, Ohio native play.

"He is going to be a member of the 2013 class and he is going to Brewster," said AAU coach Vic Dandridge. "That is what he told me and that is what his mom told me."

Even with Macon moving back to 2013, the plan is still very much in place for him to make his way to Morgantown for college.

"Elijah is going to prep school, he is not de-committing," said Dandridge. "He still plans to go to West Virginia."

Macon finished as the No. 64 prospect overall in the 2012 class and the No. 12 ranked power forward.
