WVU Commits Prepare For Classic

A pair of West Virginia hoops signees will trek to Beckley, W. Va., this weekend to participate in the 25th annual Scott Brown Memorial Classic.

For the second consecutive year West Virginia fans will receive an up-close look at a pair of Mountaineer hoops signees.

Class of 2014 guards Daxter Miles and Jevon Carter will take part in the 25th annual Scott Brown Memorial Classic. The game will be played at the Beckley-Raleigh County Convention Center.

Miles, a 6-foot-3, 180 pound combo guard from Baltimore, Md., attended Notre Dame Prep in Fitchburg, Mass., this past season, where he averaged close to 20 points per game. He was originally a part of West Virginia's class of 2013, when he graduated from Dunbar High in Baltimore. He was rated a three-star prospect by Scout.com.

He's hopeful of using this weekend as a springboard into next season, where he hopes the Mountaineers can turn their winning efforts around.

"I just want to make the team better," Miles said. "I want to win championships. I can't wait to get there and get started."

Miles, who solidified his commitment to West Virginia early in 2013, held interest from programs such as North Carolina State, Boston College, Virginia and Oklahoma State. He is set to enroll and arrive at WVU on June 1.

Carter, 6-foot-2, 180 pound guard from Maywood, Ill., played for Proviso East High under coach Donnie Boyce. This past season he led his team in scoring with 18 points per game. He also contributed six rebounds and three assists per contest.

West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins believes Carter has the ability to complement his team in a variety of ways.

"He has the ability to score as well as run your team," Huggins said of Carter last November. "Jevon definitely has a great knack of getting his hands in the passing lanes and deflecting balls."

Carter chose West Virginia over offers from Akron, Illinois State, La Salle, Toledo and Valparaiso, among others. He was rated a three-star prospect by Scout.com.

Tipoff is slated for 6:30 p.m.
