With all the focus on the 2016 recruiting class, the Mountaineers coaching staff is making a run at the top talent in the 2017 class. WVU has offered running back Trey Sermon this afternoon, who is currently rated as one of the Top 5  running backs in the 2017 class.

Sermon, a 6’0 200lbs. all purpose running back, is currently attending Sprayberry High School (GA) and is considered the state’s top back. Sermon is coming off a sophomore season in which the stats weren’t spectacular and, while the talent was on display in a limited role, that will change this season.

Sermon currently holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisville, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and now West Virginia.

While pulling Sermon out of Georgia and the SEC country will be a tough task for WVU, it’s not something that will interrupt their attempt to bolster their future rushing attack.
