Senior Moves

Boyd Anderson HS (Fla.) wide receiver David Senior recently updated his recruitment, releasing a top 15. He explains why those schools made the cut, and specifically why West Virginia made its way onto the list.

David Senior recently announced a top 15 schools list including Northern Illinois, West Virginia, Indiana, Wisconsin, Western Michigan, Utah State, Nebraska, Massachusetts, Washington, Bowling Green, Miami (FL), Clemson, Oregon, Tennessee and Toledo. After in-depth research on a wide-range of schools, Senior decided to trim down his choices.

"I did some research on schools and went off connections with coaches," Senior said. "Each school has shown interest so I put the list together with schools that have a great chance of having me."

The 5-foot-11, 160 pound wideout hasn't received official offers from all the schools making the cut, but admits the mutual interest is there. His offers include Massachusetts, Toledo, Bowling Green, Utah State, Northern Illinois, Western Michigan and Washington. West Virginia hasn't offered yet, but has shown solid interest in him.

"I've been talking with Coach Seider and he loves my film, loves my speed," Senior described. "I idolize Tavon Austin and I kind of play like him. So I watch his film and compare mine and bring it all together."

During his interaction with the Mountaineers running backs coach, it's apparent the two have connected.

"He's a very straightforward person," he said. "He will just tell you what he expects out of you. He's going to be real with you and that's a big plus for our connection."

Being a fan of Austin, and watching how WVU used him in their offense, obviously has its appeal. At West Virginia, he believes his skill set and talent could be used properly.

"I feel the way they use guys like me who are small, quick and fast is great," he said. "I love how they use them. They can make a big impact."

"The overall program is awesome," he continued. "They build guys with character and are mainly the reason why people make it to the next level. I would love to be a part of that."

Since he just trimmed his list for the first time, Senior doesn't anticipate cutting again for a while. In fact, he plans to take things slowly and see how the process works itself out.

"It's just going to happen slow. As I go further more and research a bit more I may trim it down, but nothing soon."

This summer he plans to visit several schools and get as much exposure as possible.

"I plan on visiting Northern Illinois and make it to West Virginia's camp. "I'll also go to any camp that pops up."
