Devin Leary took in Maryland earlier this month, and this weekend he spent a day at West Virginia to get an inside look at the program.

Leary, the No. 3 quarterback in the East, is high on the Mountaineers' board and took in a junior day at the campus.

"I learned that West Virginia is a very nice campus that I've never seen before," said Leary, who plays at Erial (N.J.) Timber Creek. "It has many different resources."

The 6-foot-2 1/2, 185-pound Leary was on West Virginia's campus before, but this was his first time seeing the program in-depth as a high-level recruit.

He spent time touring the facilities, learning about the academic programs and speaking with the assistant coaches.

"I see the offense fitting to my ability," Leary said. "(Offensive coordinator/quarterbacks) coach (Jake) Spavital has worked with many great quarterbacks.

"I didn't spend that much time with (coach Dana Holgorsen) but I did have a conversation about the expectations for the upcoming season, and what they are expecting out of their quarterbacks."

Leary is an accurate passer who can throw on the move, and he has a quick release and good arm strength. The staff spoke about how he fits in the offense, and Leary sees it as well.

"My biggest takeaway would be the opportunity that West Virginia offers with great coaches and a great offense as well," he said.
