West Virginia men’s basketball head coach Bob Huggins added another member to his 2013 recruiting class this week.
Jonathan Holton, a 6-foot-9 power forward who was named to the Atlantic 10 Conference all-rookie team in 2012, has experience playing for Rhode Island and Palm Beach State Community College.
While at URI, Holton averaged 10.2 points and 8.1 rebounds per game. His future came into question when he was arrested after his freshman season in March 2012 following two charges of video voyeurism. Holton allegedly videotaped consensual sex with two students. He then allegedly later put the material on Facebook, much to the disapproval of those involved. Two days following Holton’s arrest, police found out that a computer in his possession was reported stolen in a dorm at URI following the whole incident.
In his lone season at URI, Holton started 26 games and was fourth in the A-10 in rebounding. At Palm Beach State Community College, he averaged 19 points and 18 rebounds.
