Recruiting Update: Gold - Blue Weekend

The West Virginia coaching staff is set to host a large group of visitors this weekend for the annual Gold-Blue Spring Game. BlueGoldNews.com examines the prospects scheduled to be in attendance.

West Virginia fans will gather this Saturday for the annual Gold-Blue Spring Game which will take place at Milan Puskar Stadium at 1:00 p.m. A small, yet significant group of prospects are anticipated to take in the contest.

While many prospects are being kept away because of standardized ACT testing, several current Mountaineer commitments for the class of 2015 will be in attendance.

Reisterstown (Md.) brothers Jordan and Jacquez Adams both plan to make the short trip. After committing to the Mountaineers in late February, they've managed visits on a handful of occasions.

Two additional pledges, Morgantown (W. Va.) tight end Stone Wolfley and Hubbard (Ohio) offensive lineman Matt Jones will also be present.

Arguably the top uncommitted prospect on the Mountaineers' board, cornerback Jordan Whitehead, also plans to make the trip.

Whitehead has visited the Mountaineers the past couple of weekends. His recruitment is believed to be a battle between West Virginia and Penn State, with the Mountaineers projected as the early leader.

Osceola (Fla.) linebacker Riley Nicholson is also scheduled to make his first visit to West Virginia.

The 6-0, 220-pounder labeled the Mountaineers his "favorite school growing up" after receiving his offer last month. The Scout.com three-star prospect is hoping to make a decision in the upcoming months.

Johnstown (Pa.) defensive back Ka'Reem Gibson will return once again to Morgantown.

Gibson is no stranger to the University City, having visited on several occasions throughout last summer. He currently holds offers from West Virginia, Pittsburgh, Temple and Toledo.

Nordonia High School (Macedonia, Ohio) is slated to send several prospects to take in the days activities.

The group includes wide receiver Alex Alders, offensive lineman Cameron Bell, quarterback David Murray, defensive end Justice Alexander and linebacker Nyck Grayson.

Canton (Ohio) linebacker Nick Faulkner will once again return to West Virginia.

The 6-foot-2, 215-pound linebacker, who's in search of his initial offer, claims interest from Indiana, Tennessee, Kent State and Toldo, in addition to West Virginia.
