The Return of Powerhouse Huntington Prep (WV)

By Samad Hines, 04/13/21, 2:30PM EDT


National powerhouse Huntington Prep, located in Huntington, West Virginia, is expected to make a return to the basketball court next season during the 2021-2022 high school year. The Irish shutdown for the 2020-2021 high school season last summer due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

Since then, they have moved and combined with Huntington High School and will be making their way back to the floor. The last time we seen Huntington Prep on the hardwood, they finished with a 29-6 overall record during the 2019-2020 high school season while playing a national schedule. 

"Just excited to be playing in the 21-22 season. We will be having a national high school team and a post grad team." Huntington Prep head coach Arkell Bruce tells me. 

The Irish are already expected to play in a few national events for the 2021-2022 high school. Holiday Hoopsgiving, Quincy Shootout, and the Chic-Fil-A Classic are just a few stops they are expected to make next season nationally. Next season's Huntington Prep squad is expected to have a plethora of high level prospects and things should be back in full swing. 

High level talent has come out of the West Virginia national powerhouse in the past. Guys like Andrew Wiggins, Thomas Bryant, Miles Bridges, Xavier Rathan-Mayes, and others have worn the Huntington Prep jersey before.
