Morgantown, WV – Wildwood Catholic High School Crusaders forward Taj Thweatt made his early September commitment official by signing his letter of intent to West Virginia University Tuesday morning. The 6-6 195-lb small forward over Florida, Temple and Penn State.

“We are really excited to have Taj join the West Virginia family,” West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins said in a statement released by the athletic department. “He brings much-needed athleticism and has the ability to play multiple positions on the front line. Taj is capable of being a 3-man who can play both offensively and defensively on the perimeter committed to West Virginia in early December while equally playing and guarding in the post position. Taj has been very well-coached in high school.”

Taj averaged 20.2 points and 10.7 rebounds per game last season as a junior.
