Morgantown, West Virginia – Miles McBride is a seasoned, experienced veteran in the body of a 19 year old young man. Although McBride was just a freshman point guard for the Mountaineers last season, he was also the most consistent, reliable, steady player for Bob Huggins.
According to CBS Basketball Analyst Jon Rothstein, McBride is now West Virginia’s top overall player. Rothstein posted the following today on social media: “Well embedded moles in Morgantown believe that Miles McBride has emerged in the offseason as West Virginia’s top overall player. Could alter Mountaineers’ ceiling in 2020-2021.

Miles McBride had a tremendous freshman season, but the sky is truly the limit for Deuce. McBride, who averaged 9.5 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game, is the most talented returning guard in the Big 12 conference next season.
With McBride leading the team and one of the best front courts in the nation with Oscar Tshiebwe and Derek Culver, the Mountaineers will go from a very good team last year to a team that can beat anyone in the country this year.
