WVU says Cottrill withdraws from school

A West Virginia basketball spokesman says suspended guard Noah

Cottrill has left the school.

Bryan Messerly said Friday that the 6-foot-1 freshman withdrew

from classes this semester.

Cottrill never played for West Virginia after being suspended in

October by coach Bob Huggins for conduct ”unbecoming of a

Mountaineer.” No details were released.

Cottrill wasn’t immediately available for comment. His cell

phone didn’t accept messages Friday.

He was the 2010 state high school player of the year. He made

news in his freshman season at Poca High School when he gave WVU a

verbal commitment. He attended Mountain State Academy in Beckley as

a junior and won a Class AAA championship at Logan last year.
