Randall Hopes For WVU Connection

Pensylvania wide receiver Delvon Randall is no stranger to visiting West Virginia University. However, a recent trip to visit the Mountaineers has led to increased contact.

"They've been in contact with my dad a lot lately," Delvon Randall said of his recent contact with WVU. "I was just down there a couple weeks back and got to watch them practice. That was really neat."

Randall, a Scout.com three-star wide receiver, feels West Virginia could potentially be a perfect fit on several levels, particularly the distance between his home and WVU's campus.

"I like them (WVU).... I've always liked them," Randall said. "Even when I was young I liked them. The distance is good. It's not too far from home, but it's not too close."

Last season, the six-foot, 175 pound receiver had the opportunity to take in a couple Mountaineer home games. Needless to say, he came away impressed them, too.

"It's a really nice atmosphere there," he said. "I went to a couple games last year and the fan base is crazy. I just really loved the fans."

One key factor in Randall's recruitment is the ability to play in a spread offense.

"It would be a better opportunity to showcase myself," Randall said. "If I could get the ball in my hands, maybe thrown around a lot, that would be good. I can play inside or outside in a system. I'm physical so I try to work with my speed, too. I have great hands and like to make big plays."

While West Virginia hasn't yet extended an offer, several other programs have already pulled them trigger.

"I just received an offer from Bowling Green on Monday," Randall said. "I also have offers from Temple and Toledo. But there are a lot of schools that have been showing interest."

With those offers still rolling in, Randall is just trying to soak it all in.

"I'm just enjoying it all, man," Randall said. "I'm just going to weigh all my options and take things slow. I want to see what all offers I have and go from there."
