Recruiting: Bedford Talks About WVU Visit

Count David Bedford as another recruit that is experiencing delays trying to get back from an official visit. We spoke with Bedford while he was hung up in the airport in St. Louis.

"This flight has been delayed several times and now they are telling us they hope to get out of here at 8:30 p.m.," said Bedford. "I haven't had much luck with travel this weekend."

The 6-5, 240-pound defensive end out of Independence (Kans.) Community College said his visit to the Mountaineers went well.

"It was great. I loved it," said Bedford. "The only problem I had was seeing myself playing in a 3-3-5 defense because I've always played in a 4-3 based defense. But the coaches talked me through it and said I would be used like Johnny Dingle (current WVU defensive end) in that defense and I was good with that. I can see know how it would work for me and how I would be used."

Bedford said he did not commit to West Virginia, but said the Mountaineers are his leader. He still wants to take a scheduled visit in January to South Florida before making a final decision.

"I am kind of comparing each school as a I go," he explained. "That is the way I've been doing it. Oklahoma State has the edge over everybody in facilities, but they would have that over most schools in the country. West Virginia is improving their facilities and I know that the three years I would be there that they are going to be Top 10 and that is really important to me. I want to go where they will win a lot. That is a big part of it. Coach Rich Rodriguez just signed a new contract, so he is going to be there."

Bedford actually came up with his current list of favorites and it leaves Oklahoma State with work to do.

"I'd say it would be West Virginia, Kansas State, South Florida and Oklahoma State right now," said Bedford. "I haven't eliminated any of them."
