With big men on the docket for the Class of 2013, West Virginia is getting a great start in selling its program to a quartet of prospects, including:

The fourth player is Morgantown's own Nathan Adrian, who fits the visitor profile in terms of height, but who has gravitated more toward the perimeter during his high school career. An accomplished scorer, Adrian is working to improve his post game and become a more well-rounded prospect.
"I've been working on my own o a lot on my strength and on posting up more," the 6-8, 195-pounder told BlueGoldNews.com. "I want to improve those parts of my game and help my team make another run in the state tournament."
Living in the same city that WVU is located in, Adrian doesn't have too many questions that will need to be answered on his "visit".
"I pretty much know everything about the facilities and the school, so it will be a chance to get to know some of the other guys that are visiting," he said.
Adrian, who is also being recruited by Wake Forest and Virginia Tech, was hampered by a badly sprained ankle over the summer. He suffered the injury at the Hoop Group Jam Fest in Morgantown in July, and managed to play in just one game in Orlando at a subsequent AAU event.
"I could barely walk in that game, but it's fine now," he said. "I'm 100% and ready to go."
