Summer school is in session


We should probably shine some light on this. Our sports section this morning reports Jevon Carter, who made himself available to the NBA draft last month and was not invited to last week’s combine, is back on campus.

All indications, by the way, are Mountaineer guard Jevon Carter will return to Huggins’ team for the 2017-18 season.

Carter submitted his paperwork to enter the upcoming NBA draft, but didn’t hire an agent. That proved wise because Carter, the Big 12’s Defensive Player of the Year, wasn’t invited to the NBA Combine.

Huggins said Carter was working out at WVU on Tuesday and has enrolled in summer school.

That’s not binding, but it’s certainly reasonable to interpret that as a symptom. And for whatever it’s worth, Elijah Macon, who earned his undergraduate degree last week, is enrolled in summer classes, as well.
