MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Basketball recruit Jonathan Holton, whose eligibility was in question throughout the spring and summer as he dealt with legal issues and finished junior college coursework, has been added to the West Virginia basketball roster.
The 6-foot-7 forward has yet to appear in the WVU student directory, but his appearance on the roster seems to indicate he is the sixth and final signee from the 2013 recruiting class to be cleared for admission.
Holton enjoyed a breakout freshman season at Rhode Island in 2011-12, averaging 10.2 points and 8.1 rebounds. But was dismissed from the school after being arrested for secretly videoing consensual and separate sexual encounters with two female students.
Last May, a year after the charges were filed, Holton pleaded no contest to one count of felony video voyeurism. He was sentenced to two years probation and ordered to undergo mental health counseling.
Holton spent the past season at Palm Beach (Fla.) State Community College, where he averaged 17.5 points and 14.1 rebounds per game.
Four-star power forward Elijah Macon enrolled last Friday though his eligibility for his season remains unconfirmed.
Nate Adrian, Devin Williams and Brandon Watkins enrolled this summer, while junior college signee Remi Dibo came aboard earlier in August.
