CBS Sports released the picks for their All-American squad, and West Virginia senior Jevon Carter comes in with the third team.

Carter scored an even 500 points, nabbed 184 rebounds and had 137 assists during the 2016-2017 season. He also added 92 steals, and made 39 percent of his three point shots.

He’s the unquestioned leader of a West Virginia team predicted to finish second in the Big 12, the same place the Mountaineers finished last year. In the very recent past, the Mountaineers have been nothing short of excellent in a tough basketball conference. Their unique style of play has won them fans on the national scale as well.

Even with the suspension of Esa Ahmad for the first half of the season, West Virginia is going to be tough to beat. This is a team that exemplifies every basketball cliche known to man. They hustle, play great defense, take good shots, and wear teams down with effort. Carter is the leader of these efforts, and he might end up being one of the best in the nation.
