Wilson (6-foot-3, 185 pounds) is from Lorain, Ohio where he plays at Lorain High. In a release, Huggins described Wilson as a combo guard who can handle the ball as well as shoot.
“Seth is an outstanding shooter, who comes from a high school with great basketball tradition that has produced many high-level Division I players,” Huggins said. “He gives us great versatility and can play at point guard or move to the wing with his shooting ability. Seth will be a great asset to our backcourt.”
Wilson played at Lorain High last season as a junior, leading the team to the OHSAA district championship. He averaged 13 points and seven rebounds per game.
As a freshman and sophomore, Wilson played at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron, Ohio. He averaged 13.5 points and five assists as a sophomore. As a freshman, he finished second only to Lebron James for the most points scored by a freshman in school history.
Wilson was WVU’s first signee on the first day of the early signing period. Huggins and the Mountaineers have one more verbal commitment from fellow Ohio guard Kobe Johnson.
