The WVU coaching staff was visiting quarterback Cody Saunders today to watch the talented signal caller toss football at his high school when he made the announcement that he was committing to the Mountaineers as part of their 2016 class.
Saunders, 6’2″ 205 lb 2 star quarterback, was offered by the Mountaineers two weeks ago and instantly put WVU at the top of his list. After a visit to the Mountaineers’ Spring Game this past weekend, Saunders gave strong indications that when the staff came down this week there would be a commitment.
Saunders finished his junior season with a 54% completion rate for 1745 yards (174.5 YPG) and 15 touchdowns, but he makes his mark with his running abilities (907 yards and 8 touchdowns).
Saunders choose the Mountaineers over Florida Atlantic, Liberty, Southern Miss, and South Florida. He is expected to see his stock rise during his senior season but has said that this commitment will end his recruitment and he will remain solid to WVU.
