Basketball Recruiting Roundup

West Virginia men's basketball coach Bob Huggins and his staff have had a whirlwind couple of weeks, scouting and visiting several prospects in varying regions. BlueGoldNews.com brings you the latest on each player and where the Mountaineers stand in their recruitment.

  • Quentin Goodin - Campbellsville (KY)

    The Mountaineers have been interested in the 2016 point guard for sometime. The 6-foot-2, 175-pound floor general has no shortage of interest from schools across the country. He currently holds offers from Indiana, Northern Kentucky, Oklahoma State, Tennessee, Western Kentucky and Samford.

    West Virginia, a school Goodin has previously visited, remains solidly in play for his services.

    "He (Quentin) is happy about WVU's interest," his father, Chris, told BlueGoldNews.com. "He liked the facilities and the way they play. As for Coach Huggins, we liked him a lot."

  • Dikembe Dixson - Ashland (KY)

    The athletic, 6-foot-6 Dixson is known for his playmaking ability. He recorded over a dozen double-doubles last season, while averaging close to 20 points per game.

    He recently showcased his talent for the West Virginia staff at an open gym session at his high school.

    "I think I did really good," Dixson told BlueGoldNews.com "I just wanted to play relaxed. I don't know anything about my points or rebounds I just wanted to show I could play all around. My coach said they liked what they saw."

  • Jamuni McNeace - Allen (TX)

    McNeace (6-10, 205 lbs.), who holds almost a dozen offers, has watched his recruitment heat up in recent weeks. The lanky forward has been in contact with West Virginia assistant Erik Martin, which has led to an interest in the Mountaineers.

    "I've talked with Coach Martin about WVU for awhile and he has me really interested," McNeace said. "I'm looking forward to hearing more from them."

  • Esa Ahmad - Shaker Heights (OH)

    Ahmad is quickly becoming more of a household name. In recent weeks, schools such as West Virginia, Ohio State, Michigan and Xavier have all been in contact.

    The 6-foot-7, 210 pound-forward continues to grow in his game, and is working feverishly on becoming a complete player. He is very good with the mid-range jumper and is quick off his feet to play above the rim.

    After watching him earlier this week, the Mountaineers extended an offer on Wednesday.

  • Matt Moyer - Columbus (OH)

    The Lincoln High School product is definitely a prospect to keep an eye on in the future. The class of 2016 prospect worked out for West Virginia's Larry Harrison recently, and the Mountaineer assistant left impressed.

    At 6-foot-7, Moyer needs to add to his 200-pound frame. However, that hasn't delayed the interest from numerous schools. He reportedly holds offers from Dayton, Detroit and Ohio.

    Moyer visited West Virginia earlier this month and considers the Mountaineers "an early leader" in his recruitment.
