WVU added two Offense lineman to the 2018 recruiting class Sunday in Oyenmwen Uzebu and Briason Mays.

And the theme absolutely was that with these two commitments, both being from “SEC country” with Uzebu being from Georgia and Mays being from Tennessee. Mays and recent WVU QB recruit Trey Lowe are teammates in Bolivar, Tennessee. Before this year, WVU didn’t sign a prospect out of high school since 2010.
Uzebu still has one year left at Alpharetta High School and is an animal in the weight room, according to his HUDL page. His bench press max is 300 pound and he can squat up to around 460 pounds. Uzebu was committed to the University of Minnesota but de-committed due to “circumstances out of his control.”
Mays lists himself of his HUDL page at 6-4 and weighs around 275 pounds. Like Uzebu, Mays still has one more year of high school left and will hope to keep Lowe upright for Bolivar High School.
It was a good day for Coach Dana Holgorsen with camp beginning and knowing that these two chose WVU over all the other schools that offered these two 3 star prospects scholarships.
