Mountaineers Opening Summer Camp

Today was the first of a few summer camps for WVU and the coaching staff has already been impressed with the talent they have witnessed. The coaching staff extended three new offers after the camp, with two of the offers bring prospects that were given MVP awards for their performance.

The first offer went to OL Josh Sills, who quickly acted on the offer and became a commit for the 2016 class. Sills, 6’5 320 lbs. guard prospect from Meadowbrook High School (OH), was fresh off a visit to Indiana and Ohio State the previous two days but knew WVU was his choice. Sills held offers from Ball State, Cincinnati, Miami (OH), Michigan, and Toledo with Ohio State beginning to show interest.

The second offer went to RB Tayon Fleet-Davis who has been very impressive this summer after a breakout sophomore season at Potomac High School (MD). Tayon currently only holds one other offer from NC State but several schools are beginning to take notice in the rising running back.

The final offer went to OLB Chase Pine of Lafayette High School (VA) who is starting to receive interest from major programs across the country. Pine was just recently offered by North Carolina and Virginia Tech in addition to already holding offers from California, East Carolina, Georgia, Marshall, NC State, Pitt, Syracuse, Virginia, and Wake Forest. Pine is slated to visit the Notre Dame camp next weekend and is hoping to receive an offer from the Fighting Irish to add to his impressive list.

A name that impressed during the camp is 2016 CB Frank Coppet of St. Thomas Aquinas (FL) but he currently doesn’t hold an offer from WVU. Coppet is a name to watch going forward that the Mountaineers will surely be watching. Point Pleasant FB/TE Cody Mitchell was another MVP of the camp that will also be on the coaches radar moving forward.

The biggest surprise visitor was JUCO S Kyzir White who wasn’t scheduled to be on campus this weekend. White is one of the most sought after JUCO safety prospects and is very familiar with what the Mountaineers have to offer given his bloodline at WVU and the Lackawanna pipeline WVU is forming.
