The Lackawanna C.C to WVU pipeline remains alive and well with the announcement of class of 2016 tight end Trevon Wesco’s commitment to WVU today. Wesco, originally from Inwood, WV is in his second season at Lackawanna and held offers from WVU, Monmouth, and Buffalo. He had also garnered attention from schools such as Arizona, Pitt, and Penn State among others. Trevon was an multi-sport all-state athlete at Musselman High School in both football and basketball before going to Lackawanna.
Being from the state Trevon had always wanted that offer from WVU, a school he grew up rooting for and a place whenever asked refers to as “home”. Wesco finally got that WVU offer on May 4th of this year and it only took a month for him to make his decision.
Following an unofficial visit to WVU today Wesco became the 4th West Virginia native and 10th overall commit to the 2016 recruiting class. He will also be reuniting with former Musselman standout and current WVU preferred walk-on Deonte Glover who will join the Mountaineers in the fall as well as former Lackawanna wide receiver and current Mountaineer Ka’Raun White.
“I mean it’s home, it’s hard to turn something like that down. The coaching staff was great, I really like them all and they made me feel like it was my second home already”, Wesco said of his visit today. “I got to meet with the entire coaching staff and told Coach Holgorsen personally I was ready to commit”.
What may be most impressive about Wesco is his size. At 6’5 and 260 lbs the big tight end is only a couple seasons removed from being a wide receiver. Wesco has always felt he was a good fit for the Mountaineers believing that his size and speed would fit well into WVU’s offensive scheme. That combination will make him a threat on the offensive side of the ball whether it be receiving or in pass protection.
Just as Trevon tweeted after his initial offer from WVU, it’s #homesweethome.
