Esa Ahmad Takes WVA to Another Level

The Mountaineers are already a Sweet 16 team. With Ahmad, a four-star power forward prospect, there could be even bigger things in store for the Mountaineers.

Outside of seniors Juwan Staten and Gary Browne, West Virginia relies heavily on underclassmen and an intense, full-court, pressure defense to overcome their lack of size. However, Esa Ahmad - a legit 6'8", mobile power forward who has a clean stroke and great motor - gives the Mountaineers the type of frontcourt depth they haven't had in a while. Look for Ahmad and Devin Williams (who's still only a sophomore) to patrol the paint for West Virginia for years to come.
