Angus Has Prime Visit

Germantown High School offensive lineman Dontae Angus is seeing a spark in his recruitment. The talented lineman recently visited West Virginia and spoke with about his visit and a potential offer from the Mountaineers.

With a free weekend on his schedule, Philadelphia (Pa.) offensive lineman Dontae Angus was able to visit West Virginia and view one of the Mountaineers spring practices.

"It was great," Angus said. "I liked it very much. It was a great trip and the coaches are very interested in me. They have a great coaching staff and great football facilities."

What did the visit entail?

"We went down to the field and watched them practice," Angus said. "We mostly stayed with the offensive players and watched them go over their film and highlight videos."

The 6-foot-5, 305-pound lineman also had the opportunity to visit with his recruiting coach, WVU assistant Brian Mitchell. That's a relationship Angus has already grown fond of.

"I got to spend time with Coach Mitchell," Angus said. "He is a great guy. He has a great personality and is really funny. He's just a cool person to hang with and just really be around." He currently holds two offers, from Massachusetts and Rutgers, but is seeing interest from several programs -- including West Virginia.

"I'm getting interest from several schools," Angus said. "My top schools would be Rutgers, UMass, Miami (FL), Arizona and WVU.

Are the Mountaineers close to pulling the trigger with an offer?

"My coach told me they're very close to offering," he said. "I hope they do. That would be great."

Despite his enjoyable time at West Virginia, Angus isn't quite ready to name the Mountaineers his leader.

"I'm not sure I'm ready to put them (WVU) at the top of my list, but they're not too far from there." Angus said.
