WVU Notebook: Football Recruiting

The West Virginia football staff is hot on the recruiting trail, visiting and evaluating prospects across the football landscape during the open evaulation period. BlueGoldNews.com breaks down the recent happenings in our latest recruiting notebook.

Belmont (Ohio) offensive lineman Colton McKivitz recently listed West Virginia and Marshall as his top two, and he was paid a visit by Coach Ron Crook on Tuesday.

"The visit went pretty good," McKivitz told BlueGoldNews.com. "We talked for a good while."

The 6-7, 275-pound junior holds almost double-digit offers, and hopes to make a decision this summer.

Another offensive lineman the Mountaineers are keeping close tabs on is Tyler Hudanick.

The Mountaineer staff visited the Harmony (Pa.) standout this past week. He visited West Virginia in February, and holds offers from Toledo and Old Dominion. He plans to visit the Mountaineers this summer.

West Virginia became the latest school to offer Jacksonville (Fla.) standout Javaris Davis, when Coach Joe DeForest visited the two-way athlete on Monday.

Davis, 5-foot-10, 170 pound athlete, who's being recruited as both a cornerback and running back by various programs, claims more than a dozen offers. The Mountaineers join Arkansas, Clemson, Michigan State and Nebraska among others battling for his services.

Marietta (Ga.) wide receiver Harland Howell holds almost a half dozen offers to his name, and that number could soon rise. West Virginia has become the latest school to become involved, and visited the Scout.com three-star on Tuesday.

Howell (6-4, 200 lbs.) recently told Scout.com the Georgia Bulldogs had been staying in contact the most, and was a childhood favorite. However, a WVU offer could be an intriguing option for Howell, who's known for his ability to catch the deep pass.

West Virginia extended an offer to Suwanee (Ga.) defensive end Tomon Fox on Wednesday. The Mountaineers join Georgia Tech as programs to tender the rising junior.
