West Virginia University basketball coach Bob Huggins has announced the signing of Danny Jennings to a national letter of intent for the 2009-10 academic year.

A 6-foot-8, 255-pound forward, Dand Jennings is currently in his senior year, playing for Coach Jere Quinn at St. Thomas More School in Oakdale, Conn. St. Thomas More School is the same school that current Mountaineer Devin Ebanks attended last season. Jennings is ranked as the 23rd-best center in the 2009 class by

“Danny plays as hard as any high school big man in the country,” said Huggins. “He combines great size with a tremendous thirst to get better. Danny gives us outstanding size and bulk that we’ve lacked the last few years. He should develop into one of the premier rebounders in the big East, and he is learning from a New England prep school legend in Jere Quinn.”

As a junior at Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Va., Jennings averaged 10 points and seven rebounds per game. A native of Staten Island, N.Y., Jennings transferred to Oak Hill Academy from Bishop Loughlin High in Brooklyn, N.Y., for his junior season.

Jennings played AAU basketball for the New York Gauchos with current WVU freshman point guard Darryl Bryant. Jennings joins Dalton Pepper, a 6-foot-5, 215-pound shooting guard (Levittown, Pa./Pennsbury High), and Deniz Kilicli, a 6-foot-9, 260-pound forward (Istanbul, Turkey/Mountain State Academy, Beckley, W.Va.) in this year’s recruiting class.
