West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins has done well in the past with underrated players with the potential to breakout with experience.
He's got another one coming in the fold next season, as guard Terry Henderson committed to the Mountaineers on Monday afternoon.
Henderson chose West Virginia over a slew of offers, including Miami (Fl.), Maryland, Richmond, George Mason, Boston College, Rutgers and Virginia Tech.
Henderson, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard from Neuse Baptist Christian School (N.C.), improved his stock with a strong spring and summer. He's one of the better shooters in the class, with good range and impressive fundamentals on his jumper. Henderson also looked to drive to the basket more on the AAU circuit, diversifying his offensive skillset.
He joins top-100 forward Elijah Macon and talented combo guard Eron Harris in West Virginia's 2012 class.

If SMU indeed moves to the Big East in the next couple of years, the Mustangs will need Big East-level talent.
They started the process on Friday, getting a commitment from Blaise Mbargorba. The news was first reported by Scout.com.
Mbargorba is a 6-foot-11 Cameroon native, who burst onto the scene in 2009 as a relative unknown. The Peddie School (N.J.) product is very strong and athletic, and he moves fairly well for someone his size. He knows how to get position inside, and he has soft hands. Mbargorba’s offense is still somewhat raw, but he continues to improve.
He was considered a Vanderbilt lean for most of his recruitment, but the Mustangs made a late run to snag him. Mbargorba also held offers from Temple, Virginia Tech, Saint Joseph’s, West Virginia, George Mason, Northwestern, Clemson, Charlotte, Cincinnati and Columbia.
