Morgantown, West Virginia – As first reported by The Voice of Motown, Bol Kuir, the 7’3 high school junior who lives just across the West Virginia border in Belfry, Kentucky, has gained the attention of the West Virginia coaching staff.
Kuir, who averages 14.8 points, a state-best 14.2 rebounds and 4.2 blocks per game in his first ever season of high school basketball, is a project but is surprisingly skilled for a player of his size and lack of experience.
Kuir announced two days ago that he has received an official scholarship offer from West Virginia University. VOM confirmed this offer with Kuir’s legal guardian and Bol himself. In addition, several news outlets, including Spectrum News 1 Kentucky, The Courier Journal in Louisville, Kentucky, and Verbal Commits, confirmed that an offer has been extended by West Virginia University.
However, local outlets have since come out and said that a scholarship has not yet been offered by the Mountaineers’ coaching staff. West Virginia University has definitely been in contact and Bol has visited the school in the past, but whether he’s been formally offered is unclear.
Kuir’s guardian says that he absolutely has been offered. Bol says that he has spoken to the coaching staff and has an official offer. Kuir’s coach at Belfry, Mark Thompson, said that he’s uncertain and tries to stay out of matters like this.
Bob Huggins’ team needs interior defensive help and Kuir is precisely the physically-imposing player that can step in and be a game-changer on the defensive side of the ball.
If Huggins has in fact offered Kuir a scholarship, it would be his first offer and would immediately put the Mountaineers at the top of his list. If Huggins has not offered him, he would be wise to do so before every big-name school in the country lines up for this revolutionary, once in a lifetime prospect!
