The you/ewe "sound" has no single symbol; it is represented by the sequence /juː/, which is two phonemes.
The full phonemic transcription for "huge" in the dialect of English I'm familiar with (it might differ somewhat from your own) is:
This may or may not differ from the narrow (phonetic) transcription, depending on how specific you wish to represent the pronunciation, but technically [hjuːdʒ] is still accurate.
