Spring training has begun for WVU football, but that hasn’t kept the coaches off the recruiting trail. Over the past couple of weeks Head Coach Dana Holgorsen and staff have extended several key offers to beef up the 2017 class.
WVU offered 2017 DB Kyle Nunn of Finlay (OH) who holds offers from Indiana and Northwestern in addition to the Mountaineers offer.
WVU offered 2017 DE Alex King of Mason (OH) who has offers from over 10 Midwest universities.
2017 ATH Kemore Gamble opened his recruitment back up from Miami and he holds an offer from WVU.
WVU extended an offer to 2017 RB Malik Davis of Jesuit (FL) . Davis adds the WVU offer to an already impressive list that includes Arizona, Miami, North Carolina, and USF.
WVU offered 2017 QB Justice McCoy of St. Augustine (LA). The WVU offer is the biggest for McCoy, who is considered one of the top dual threats quarterbacks in the country for 2017. McCoy was a visitor to WVU this past weekend for the Mountaineers Junior Day which appears to have solidified WVU in his recruitment process.
WVU offered 2017 CB Mike Lee of Landry-Walker. Walker has several offers from power five programs including Arizona State, California, Georgia, Miami, Tennessee, Texas A&M, and Utah.
2017 WR Deon Jackson of Pace Academy (GA) received an offer from WVU as well. Jackson has other offers from Maryland, Rutgers, and Georgia Southern.
2017 OL Target Billy Ross was a Junior Day visitor this past weekend and he tells me that the visit went great and that he was able to spend a lot of time with Coach Crook during his time on campus.
Another Junior Day visitor, 2017 RB Michael Carter said he had a great time on his visit and that the individual time he was able to spend with Coach Seider was the best part of the trip. “He is very high on me and they put a huge emphasis on playing time as a freshman which is a big thing for me.” Said Carter. He says that WVU is at the top of his recruitment but isn’t prepared to name a leader at the moment.
2017 DL Malcolm Robinson Jr. was also able to make the trip to Morgantown this weekend and was impressed with what he saw. Robison went on to say “I was able to spend some time with Coach Crook during my visit and I had a great time. WVU is a great school with a great football program and great coaching staff.”
WVU also extended an offer to a pair of teammates this week. 2017 DT Isaiah Johnson and DT Wiley Lester of Northeastern Oklahoma A&M Junior College. Johnson says that the WVU offer “is an honor for him.” Coach Caponi extended the offer to Johnson and he says a visit to WVU is in the works very soon.
2017 RB Eno Ferguson released a top 10 yesterday of potential landing spots. WVU remains a possibility for the talented prospect even though they are on the outside looking in.
WVU also extended an offer for top 2017 DE Bryan Jones of Madison Prep Academy (LA) this week. Jones told me that the offer “is a huge honor and that he is very familiar with what West Virginia has to offer.” Jones holds over 20 offers from major programs all around the country.
WVU extended an offer to 2017 OL Mekhi Becton of Highland Springs (VA) this week. At 6’7″ 300 lbs. Becton has the frame to be a major impact player on the offensive line for any program.
