Mr. Logo Jr.

As West Virginia prepares to host the Louisville Cardinals in a rematch of last year's Elite Eight match-up this afternoon, did you hear about the latest Mountaineer recruit?

He is the son of a smooth shooting Mountaineer who hails from West Virginia.

No, I am not referring to Kevin Pittsnogle's newborn son, Kwynsie.

This recruit graduates this year and is none other than Jonnie West, the son of Mountaineer legend and NBA Hall of Famer, Jerry West. West was such the epitome of basketball that his silhouette is featured on the NBA logo.

Jerry's son is a smooth shooting guard from Memphis Lausanne High School who attended the Nike All American Camp last summer.

I think it's great that he chose WVU. It would be great if his career was even half as successful as his father.
