While the WVU commitment of 2016 3 star linebacker Zach Sandwisch is significant in of itself, it could cause a potential snowball effect for the Mountaineers. Sandwisch, who is arguably one of the most underrated recruits in the state of Ohio, has left no doubts that he plans on going on the recruiting trail himself. There are two other 2016 prospects that Zach would like to call teammates in the future, 4 star LB’s Jango Glackin and Brendan Ferns.
Along with Sandwisch, Ferns has another WVU commit wanting him in Morgantown. His brother Michael Ferns made the decision to transfer from Michigan to WVU this past December. Though Brendan is considered a strong Ohio State lean at this time those two factors may come into play in the future. Brendan made a surprise visit to Morgantown just this past weekend on Junior Day.
Jango Glackin is also from Ohio but is currently attending the IMG Academy in Florida. Although Jango’s recruitment is beginning to pick up, he has been considered a WVU lean for some time now. The connection between Jango and Zach is simple, they have a mutual respect for one another. Even more than that, both have openly stated they would like to be teammates at the next level. Though Jango is set to visit WVU on the 31st of this month he has told me that he does not plan on making his final decision until the June time frame.
With Sandwisch and 3 star LB Logan Thimons already committed for the 2016 class, the additions of Glackin and Ferns would round out a very solid linebacking corp for the Mountaineers in the future.
