A Pair of Ohio Teammates Visiting WVU Next Weekend



A pair of teammates from Charles F. Brush High School in Lyndhurst, Ohio is visiting West Virginia next weekend, continuing a trend of WVU digging into the Ohio basketball battlegrounds.

2022 shooting guard Elmore James IV and 2023 power forward Tyler Williams helped lead the Arcs to a 15-6 record last season, overcoming an 0-4 start. James (6-foot-3) and Williams (6-foot-8) each collected postseason honors following the season.

James was named to the All-Ohio first-team, along with All-District first-team, as he led the region in scoring with 29.8 points per game. Williams earned an honorable mention in the district, too, pulling down a nightly double-double.

Elmore has offers from North Texas, Toledo, Kent State, Ohio, Eastern Kentucky, Tulane, Canisius, Miami (Oh.), Milwaukee, Bryant, Youngstown State and Cleveland State. Williams has offers from Miami (Oh.), Cleveland State and Bryant. Although, neither have been offered by WVU yet.

WVU has already picked up a commitment from 2022 power forward Josiah Harris out of Cleveland, Ohio.
