WVU To Host Multiple QB's

Over the course of the next several weeks, West Virginia will host a variety of quarterback prospects hoping to secure official offers from the Mountaineers. BlueGoldNews.com examines those recruits and where their recruitment stands.

The West Virginia coaching staff continues its search to find which quarterback prospect fills the positional need for the class of 2015. In addition, could a rising junior receive an offer from the Mountaineers?

Over the next couple of weeks Mountaineer mentors will get an up-close look at a handful of signalcallers who plan to visit the Mountaineers.

Long Beach (Calif.) quarterback Josh Love will visit West Virginia on June 3.

The 6-foot-2, 188-pound Love plans to make his way across country to complete in the Elite 11 event in Columbus, Ohio. Shortly thereafter he'll make the short trip east to visit the Mountaineers.

"I'm looking forward to seeing the campus and meeting Coach (Dana) Holgorsen," Love told BlueGoldNews.com.

Almost a week later, on June 8th, the Mountaineers will play host once again to to a few quarterbacks who hope to fill the void at the position.

Chattanooga (TN) quarterback Nick Tiano plans to make a return trip. Despite not holding a West Virginia offer, Tiano has been heavily involved with the Mountaineers. He was on-hand in February for junior day and was visited by WVU offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson last month.

Tiano (6'5, 230 lbs.) holds offers from Miami (Fla.), Mississippi State and UT-Chattanooga.

Columbia (Md.) dual-threat quarterback David Pindell also plans to camp on the same date in search of an offer from the Mountaineers.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Pindell is arguably the most athletic prospect on the Mountaineers board. Already boasting an offer from Syracuse, Pindell hopes to impress the WVU staff and receive that prestigious offer.

"I'm going there to receive an offer, hopefully," Pindell said. "That's my goal."

Class of 2016 Isaac Johnston also plans to visit the Mountaineers on June 8. The Blacksburg HS (Va.) quarterback — and son of former Mountaineer signal-caller Chad Johnston — is extremely familiar with the WVU program and hopes to secure an offer while on campus.

As a sophomore, the 6-foot-2, 220-pound Johnston threw for over 1200 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Johnston is still searching for his first offer.
