The West Virginia Mountaineers have picked up their second recruit in the class of 2019. Oscar Tshiebwe is a talented center that committed to West Virginia over the Kentucky Wildcats. The center is graded as the best prospect that the Mountaineers have landed in their history. This is a huge boost to the Mountaineers and their rebuilding process upcoming in 2019. The Pennsylvania big man is listed at 6’9″ and 250 pounds.
The Mountaineers now have a staple for their 2019 class and edging out a team like the Kentucky Wildcats is a feat done by few teams. West Virginia is a talented team and will be boosted by the entrance of Tshiebwe next year when he comes to campus. Head Coach Bob Huggins has a talented center coming in that will fit his style of play perfectly. The Center is ranked 8th at his position and 22nd overall in the nation. This is a huge pickup for the Big 12 team that has lived in the shadow of the Kansas Jayhawks for a long time.
I have been humbled by all the coaches recruiting me and people wondering where I would attend school. Thank you for everything. Time to go to work, KC Pride and Mountaineer Nation going for Championships. Country roads take me home???? pic.twitter.com/pNBEZ3r9gx

Oscar Tshiebwe is excited about coming to the Mountaineers and hopes to compete for a Big 12 and National Championship. Finding a hole in the armor of Bill Self and the Kansas Jayhawks will not be easy, but adding a five-star recruit will certainly help matters a great deal. It is hard to say if Oscar Tshiebwe will be a one and done prospect, but regardless the talent will be welcomed in Morgantown, West Virginia. The team is geared up for 2018, but 2019 will be a lot of fun for the Mountaineers.
