That means there must be subtraction somewhere to make way for the addition. The official WVU directory lists both of the other two signees from the recruiting class of 2012 -- Eron Harris and Terry Henderson -- as enrolled in school.
That leaves the most coveted member of that signing haul, Elijah Macon, to be accounted for. To accommodate Humphrey, either Macon will not be a part of the WVU program or a player currently on the roster will have to depart.
As for Humphrey, he is a 6-foot-5 guard who started 29 games at Boston College last season, averaging 10.3 points per game while playing a team-high 30.3 minutes per contest.
"His size and length will definitely make us a better defensive team on the perimeter and should help us create matchup problems for opposing defenses," coach Bob Huggins said in a statement. "He will give us another 3-point threat, which will enable us to stretch defenses and open up the posts for our inside guys."
Humphrey, who graduated from BC with a degree in human development, also played at Oregon. As a sophomore there, he missed 12 games due to a knee injury, but played in 19 others -- including four starts.
