Visit Primer

West Virginia will host several top prospects on campus this weekend, in what could be considered its most important recruiting weekend to date.

West Virginia hosts a few of their top prospects remaining this upcoming weekend. With eyes set on signing day just a few weeks away, this weekend should prove to be pivotal in a strong finish for the Class of 2014.

Recruit: Donte Thomas-Williams
Position: Running Back
BGN Breakdown: Thomas-Williams had publicly named a top three of West Virginia, North Carolina State and Florida State -- though it's believed the four-star running back will decide between the Mountaineers and Wolfpack. West Virginia had made it clear with Thomas-Williams he is their top priority, especially not having another positional prospect committed. He'll visit N.C. State on January 24, then make a decision on signing day.

Recruit: Daejuan Funderburk
Position: Safety
BGN Breakdown: After eliminating both Kentucky and Miami (FL) from his final list of schools, Funderburk made no secret about West Virginia being his favorite. The hard-hitting, 6-foot, safety hopes to make a final announcement shortly after his visit.

Recruit: Chris Worton
Position: Wide Receiver
BGN Breakdown: Worton, who is currently committed to Florida State, has held the Mountaineers in high regard for a while, and has finally settled on a visit date. Known as an explosive, sure-handed slot receiver, Worton would be a nice addition to the Mountaineers class. He's also planning to visit Ole Miss and UCF, where his brother, J.J., is a wide receiver for the Knights.

Recruit: Steven Myers
Position: Offensive Tackle
BGN Breakdown: Though it's unlikely at this point Myers will receive an offer from the Mountaineers, that doesn't discount the interest they have in him. Myers, 6-foot-4, 285 pounds, plays physical and could translate into a solid addition to the program. He's in search of a preferred walk-on offer, one he's already received from Penn State, UCONN and Hawaii.
