With national signing day less than two months away BlueGoldSports.com will start bringing you updates every Tuesday and Friday mornings of the latest happenings surrounding WVU targets.
– Both Isaac Whitney (Thursday) and Rasul Douglas (Wednesday) plan on announcing their schools of choice this week.
– Douglas tells BGS that WVU is among his top group as he prepares to make his announcement Wednesday evening at 9 PM.
–Isaac Whitney had a good visit to Morgantown this past weekend. Said he liked the small town feel of Morgantown. He also stated that he was fully aware of the fact of what Kevin White accomplished this season and that he would have the opportunity to fill the void left by his departure next season. Whitney is planning on announcing his decision on Thursday at 1:30 this week. Whitney’s decision will come down between WVU and USC.
-rumors have continued to surround Jordan Whitehead and his commitment to Pitt. As of now Whitehead remains committed to Pitt although he was stated he would forego enrolling early. This will give the WVU coaching staff an additional 3 weeks after the dead period to make another hard run at the 4 star defensive back. Things could change though as Chryst is reported to get an official offer from Wisconsin on Wednesday of this week. Whether or not that will have a bearing on Whitehead’s future is yet to be known.
-4 star all purpose back out of Garner, NC, Nyheim Hines, has been high on the Mountaineers recruiting board for some time. The staff was looking forward to meeting with Hines in January when he is planning to make his official visit. Unfortunately Hines is prepared to announce his college choice and that will take place before his visit to Morgantown.
-4 star Safety Kendrell McFadden out of Miramar announced today that he was reopening his recruitment but will, “remain committed to WVU unless he finds something better”. McFadden committed to the Mountaineers in January of 2014 and is one of 5 Miramar players committed for the 2015 class. McFadden did follow up his announcement with this tweet:
#WVU you are already part of me. I have a HUGE decision to make. All I said is I’m open to explore my options before I sign. much love

-3 star defensive tackle Robert Landers has been verbally committed to the Mountaineers since October 4th of this year. Landers visited Ohio State this past weekend. Though he remains committed to WVU some worry the offer he received from the Buckeyes this past weekend could possibly sway his commitment. Landers will be back in Morgantown to visit in January.
–Tim Irvin announced Monday on Twitter that no one will be hearing from him any more until he makes his decision on January 3rd during the All-American game. No one is truly sure which way Irvin is leaning as he has kept his recruitment very close to the vest.
