Offensive lineman Jah'Shaun Seider, the younger brother of former WVU quarterback and current Mountaineer assistant JaJuan Seider, has committed to West Virginia for the class of 2015. The younger Seider, a 6-3, 280-pound prospect out of Glades Central in Florida, committed Saturday after receiving an offer during WVU’s camp. There were thoughts that Seider might take more time before finally giving a verbal, but the lineman was quick to jump on the Mountaineers’ offer.
Seider, recruited by JaJuan, projects as an interior lineman and, as one might expect, is an “extremely physical” player according to BlueGoldNews.com recruiting guru Jonathan Martin. Martin notes that Seider isn’t the most athletic prospect, but should “definitely earn his keep with great attitude and work ethic.” Seider, a Scout.com three-star player, has a solid offer list which includes LSU, Minnesota, Mississippi, South Florida and Cincinnati, among others. Jah’Shaun posted on his Twitter account that he benched 405 pounds on July 22, then posted a picture of himself in a Mountaineer uniform. JaJuan, also taking to the social media site, posted an Instagram picture of himself and his brother, with the tagline “Seiders all over Morgantown.”
Seider is the 15th commit of a class shaping up to be the finest during the Dana Holgorsen-era and among the better ones in school history. Seider is the Mountaineers’ 10th Scout.com thee-star player, along with four four-star commits. West Virginia’s class currently ranks 23rd in the nation, ahead of Big Ten defending champion Michigan State and just behind powers Oregon and Arkansas. Seider is the fourth offensive line commit in the class, along with Matt Jones, Alec Shriner and Colton McKivitz. Jones and McKivitz are from Ohio, while Shriner is also a Florida prospect.
BlueGoldNews.com will soon have more from the Seider.
