Wassil Makes The Call

West Virginia added another piece to the class of 2014 this weekend, as Hubbard (Ohio) quarterback Brennan Wassil committed to the Mountaineers.

The 6-foot-4, 195 pound prospect will join the Mountaineers as a preferred walk-on. He was considering offers from Division II schools St. Francis, Robert Morris, Lake Erie and Edinboro. He also held recent interest from Ohio University.

"It was a really hard decision to make, but I'm really excited," Wassil said. "It was a hard decision because that's free money to go to school. I just couldn't make up my mind and every time I'd think about it I just came back to WVU. And that's where I wanted to be."

After speaking to both head coach Dana Holgorsen and offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson about his decision, excitement filled the room about adding the signal-caller to the program.

"I told them separately, but I know coach Dawson was pretty excited." he said. "He's excited to get me down to West Virginia and get to work. I want to come in and work hard and get to know the system."

Wassil joins William Crest and Skyler Howard as quarterbacks in the class of 2013. Being a preferred walk-on, Wassil knows the cards are stacked against him. However, he hopes to compete for a position and earn the trust of Mountaineer coaches.

"I just want to play hard, work hard and be a good teammate. I'll let the rest take care of itself."

Last season, Wassil threw for almost 1,000 yards and 17 touchdowns.
