Makes It Official

West Virginia University basketball coach Bob Huggins has announced the signing of Noah Cottrill to a national letter of intent for the 2010-11 academic year.

Cottrill, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound guard, is currently in his senior year at Logan High in Logan, W.Va., playing basketball for coach Mark Hatcher.

Last year as a junior, Cottrill attended Mountain State Academy in Beckley, W.Va., where he averaged 25.8 points per game. He was coached by Rob Fulford.

Prior to Mountain State Academy, Cottrill attended Poca High in Poca, W.Va., where he averaged 30.9 points as a sophomore and 23.8 points as a freshman, playing for coach Allen Obsorne. He hit 83 3-pointers during his sophomore campaign and 52 3-point field goals as a freshman.

Cottrill, who scored 1,164 points in two years at Poca, was the Kanawha Valley Player of the Year and runner-up for State Player of the Year as a sophomore. He earned Class AA first team all-state honors as a sophomore and was a second team all-state selection as a freshman.

Cottrill is ranked by ESPN.com as the 16th-best point guard in the 2010 recruiting class and the 68th-best player overall. He is ranked No. 13 among point guards by Scout.com, and Rivals.com has him at No. 20 at point guard and No. 79 overall.

"We are excited to have Noah Cottrill join our basketball program," says Huggins. "Noah is an outstanding shooter, has terrific ball-handling skills and has a tremendous ability to score. It is great to be able to sign one of our own, and Noah is excited to represent this great state on and off the court."

Cottrill has played AAU basketball for the Ohio Basketball Club for coach Mike Duncan and the West Virginia Swoosh for coach Bobby Dawson.
