First Look

The West Virginia University coaching staff hosted a small number of prospects this past weekend. Among the visitors was Germantown HS (Philadelphia, Pa.) wide receiver Delane Hart.

Wide receiver Delane Hart had never visited West Virginia before. Unsure of what to expect, Hart came away from the visit impressed and with a different outlook than beforehand.

"It was more than I expected," Hart said. "I liked everything about it to be honest. The coaches had a plan about what was going on with everybody. It was nice."

While on the visit, Hart was able to witness a spring practice and see what it would potentially be like being a Mountaineer.

"We got to watch the practice, which was nice," Hart said. "The coaches were really into the practice. It was competitive the whole time and had a lot of intensity."

Despite the visit being in the midst of practice, Hart was able to spend quality time with his lead recruiter, cornerbacks coach Brian Mitchell.

"I got to spend time with Coach Mitchell, which was cool," he said. "He's just a cool person and seems to be real honest with me. He was straight up about everything and was just honest. I really appreciated that."

While Hart didn't come away with an offer from the Mountaineers, it's something he feels confident is on the horizon.

"The coaches told me they want me to come to a camp," Hart said. "They want me to show my game and they said they'll go from there."

In addition to visiting WVU, Hart has also been to Massachusetts and Connecticut. Those programs, in addition to Old Dominion, UCF, and Miami (FL), are showing the most interest.
