West Virginia basketball coach Bob Huggins says Huntington standout Elijah Macon has been cleared academically to enroll in school.

The Charleston Gazette reports Friday was the last day for the 6-foot-9 Macon to enroll in fall classes.

Macon originally signed with the Mountaineers in 2012 when he was a senior at Huntington Prep. But he didn't qualify academically and spent last season in prep school in New Hampshire.
