It’s that time of the year when schools begin to offer prospects for the 2017 class and yesterday was a little busier than normal for the WVU coaching staff. Let’s take a look at all of the offers that were extended yesterday;
The obvious place to start is with 2019 OL Doug Nester of Spring Valley (WV). Nester becomes the first 2019 prospect in the state to receive a D1 offer. The Mountaineers may be trying to put together a package deal with Nester and 2017 OL prospect Riley Locklear, also from Spring Valley. The Mountaineers offered Locklear on the 17th of this month.
WVU also extended an offer to RB prospect in Tevin Bush, who currently resides deep in the heart of SEC country at Landry-Walker (LA). Bush tells me that WVU is his dream school and he is excited about the offer.
WVU also extended an offer to Eric Douglas of Mallard Creek (NC), another impressive 2017 offensive line prospect at 6’4 275 lbs.. The Mountaineers have come in a little late on Douglas who is leaning toward staying south with offers from South Carolina and Clemson already under his belt.
2017 WR Justin Marshall picked up an offer from WVU last night as well. Marshall has the size (6’3 190 lbs.) and skill set to be a the prototypical outside receiver for the Mountaineers. Marshall tells me that the offer from Coach Galloway means a lot and it’s nothing less than a blessing to him.
A very undervalued prospect that picked up an offer from WVU was 2017 LB Louis Acceus out of St Joseph Regional (NJ). Acceus holds offers from Maryland, Miami, Michigan State, Nebraska, Pitt, Rutgers, and Wisconsin.
