The West Virginia Mountaineers will have to rebuild heavily next season after losing five seniors from this season's team, whose season ended in the second round of the NCAA tournament. Head coach Bob Huggins has completed his six man incoming class for the 2011-12 season by adding forward Dominique Rutledge from Western Texas College. Rutledge is a 6 foot 8 inch forward 235 forward who can both score and rebound.â†µ
Huggins said of his new signee:
"Dominique is a big body who gives us athleticism and versatility on the front line," says Huggins. "He should be able to defend all of the front line positions and will give us an effective midrange scorer. He was highly recommended by former WVU great Da’Sean Butler."â†µ
Rutledge joins returning Mountaineers Kevin Jones, Darryl Bryant, Deniz Kilicli, Dalton Pepper, Kevin Noreen and five highly touted freshman recruits. Next year's Mountaineers team is now complete, but it's yet to be seen what they can do.
