Camped And Committed

Continuing the trend of athletes announcing their college selection on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, quarterback Brandon Napoleon tweeted that he has offered his verbal commitment to head coach Dana Holgorsen and company.

Apparently excited about the development (he sent out the message in all capital letters), Napoleon tweeted Saturday morning "I just committed to West Virginia University...a Mountaineer just like my dad."

The quarterback's father, Eugene Napoleon, was a running back at WVU under then-coach Don Nehlen from 1987-89. He played in 26 games, carried 210 times and netted 1,001 yards in his Mountaineer career.

While some high schoolers don't allow such "legacies" to play into their thinking during their college recruitment, it is apparent the family history weighed into Napoleon's thinking at least partially.

Just minutes after announcing his commitment, Napoleon (who tweets @Napoleon5Qb) added on Twitter that he "Cant [sic] believe" he will end up playing at the same school as his father.
