"National Signing Day has Arrived"
Mountaineers sign 21 recruits in 2014 class
12 players on Offense and 9 players on Defense
6 Four Star Recruits and 15 Three Star recruits make up this years class

Next Up: The Annual Gold & Blue Spring game sometime in April

Well Mountaineers the 2014 recruiting class is in for the most part and it is top heavy with offensive linemen with 6 signed thus far. In all there were 21 players that officially signed letters of intent to play football at West Virginia University. There are 12 offensive players and 9 defensive players with one previous commitment yet to sign. Thats 21 new Mountaineer players, 22 when you add the talented tailback Russell Shell who transfered from Pittsburg. The breakdown is as follows….On Offence.

6 - Offensive Linemen
3 - Wide Receivers
2 – Quarterbacks
1 – Running Back

And on Defense…..

3 – Linebackers
2 – Cornerbacks
2 – Safeties
2 – Defensive Linemen

The biggest surprises thus far have been Philadelphia Offensive Tackle Dontae Agnus who decided on signing day to be a Mountaineer and snubbed the Florida Gators. Another nice surprise was 4 star running back Donte Thomas-Williams from Hillside High School in Durham North Carolina who was heavily recruited but had not decided on anything until today.

The lone previous committed recruit that has not yet sent in his letter of intent but may yet become a Mountaineer is offensive linemen Jamie Herr from Eastern Christian Academy in Maryland, If this young man ultimately joins the fold that will give the Mountaineers 7 offensive linemen in this year’s class. In terms of rankings this year’s class has 6 four star recruits and 15 three star recruits. No 2 star or 5 star recruits.

According to coach Holgorsen they will have the full 85 players on Scholarship allowed by the NCAA which they have not had since early in Rich Rodriguez time in Morgantown. In the 2011 Orange Bowl the Mountaineers has just 63 players on scholarship but now the numbers are up to the maximum. The Mountaineer coaches expect 70 of these scholar athletes to participate in spring practice and another 25 invited walkons to join them so there should be 100 players at spring pracice. This should allow the coaches to play a of football in spring practice with enough players to run multiple scrimmages per day.

One last comment on the recruiting situation in the State of West Virginia. I noticed that both WVU and Marshall combined had just one scholarship player from the West Virginia high school system. Morgantowns Amanii Brown was the lone player, Marshall had none. Of course if you count invited walkons their will most likely be 12 or so between the two schools. Is this a reflection on West Virginia high School football?
