MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia has signed junior college transfer Tarik Phillip for the 2014-15 men’s basketball season.

Coach Bob Huggins announced Phillip’s signing Wednesday, saying he’ll give the Mountaineers some versatility at guard along with some help on defense.

The 6-foot-3 Phillip averaged nearly 19 points, seven rebounds and more than four assists this past season at Independence Community College in Kansas. Phillip will have three years of eligibility remaining.

Phillip joins guards Jevon Carter and Daxter Miles in West Virginia’s recruiting class.
