Monroe (N.C.) three-star wide receiver Jaylan Barbour is looking for the right fit when deciding on a school for his future. The talented wide-out believes the Mountaineers could fit the description.
"I know the offense they have throws the ball around a lot, so that's obviously what I'm looking for ," Barbour said. "I think it would be a great situation. I'd love to play in that offense."
Not only does WVU offer an appealing offensive scheme, they also fit into Barbour's personal style.
"I'm just really quick, almost like lightning in a bottle, Barbour said. "I just love to have the ball in my hands. I'm always looking to make plays wherever, just trying to make things happen."
Barbour, a 5-foot-9, 170 pound playmaker has never visited West Virginia before. However, he has heard positives reviews from unusual sources.
"Well, I actually have two teachers at my school who went to West Virginia," he said. "They told me it's a nice place with a nice stadium. They said the fans really come out and support the team."
Leading the charge in Barbour's recruitment for the Mountaineers is wide receivers coach, Lonnie Galloway.
"From what I know he's a really cool person," Barbour said in describing his relationship with Galloway. "He's a real good coach to get along with. We talk on the phone a lot. He's someone I could work with real good."
As it currently stands, Barbour is hoping to attend the Mountaineers' spring football game on April, 20. The visit could prove vital in his recruitment, given his hopes to announce a commitment in early summer.
"Yes sir," Barbour said. "I'm really trying to get up there for the spring game. That's my goal. I'm hoping to narrow schools down soon and make a decision in June."
