West Virginia signs F Jonathan Holton


MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Junior college transfer Jonathan Holton has signed to play at West Virginia.

West Virginia coach Bob Huggins says the 6-foot-7 Holton is a prototype Big 12 forward and should give the Mountaineers immediate help on the front line.

Holton averaged 17.5 points and 14.1 rebounds per game last season at Palm Beach (Fla.) State Community College. He played at Rhode Island as a freshman in 2011-12, averaging 10.2 points and 8.1 rebounds.

While at Rhode Island, campus police arrested Holton in March 2012 on felony charges that he videotaped consensual sexual encounters with two 20-year-old female students without their knowledge. He was suspended from the team after the incident. The case is pending in Rhode Island Superior Court.

Holton will have two years of eligibility remaining.
