WVU Recruiting Breakdown: Wide Receivers

Breaking down the remaining wide receivers in the class of 2015 and where WVU stands in the recruitment of each.

After signing three wide receivers in the class of 2014, and having only two makeit to campus, it’s believed West Virginia would secure commitments from multiple prospects at the position this go around. With two current verbal pledges to date, expect the Mountaineers to add to that list before Signing Day in February, 2015.

Commitments:

Kahlil Lewis, Miramar (Fla.)

Jovon Durante, Miramar (Fla.)


Prospects:

Patrick Anderson, Aliquippa (Pa.)

West Virginia was successful in Aliquippa last recruiting cycle and may strike it big there once again. The talented receiver is one of the most intriguing prospects in the east and is hearing the most from WVU, Akron and Bowling Green. Most schools plan to keep track of his academic performance this year so the competition could heat up if he takes care of business in the classroom.

Therrell Gosier, Pompano Beach (Fla.)

Gosier remains committed to Miami (Fla.) but plans to take all five official visits before making a final decision. He lists Nebraska, Miami, Kentucky, West Virginia and Clemson as the five schools to receive a visit. While it may be difficult plucking him away from the Hurricanes, earning a visit could go a long way.

Damian King, Largo (Fla.)

The shifty receiver recently told Scout national recruiting analyst Jamie Newberg WVU will “most definitely” receive an official visit this fall. The Mountaineer coaches love the idea of placing him in the slot to help creat mismatches in the passing game.

Gary Jennings, Stafford (Va.)

Fresh off making a top five of Boston College, Vanderbilt, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin Jennings hopes to make a decision sooner rather than later.

Both Mountaineers’ spread offense and conference affiliation are believed to play huge factors in his interest, and could boost them towards the top of his list.

Tavares Martin, Palm Beach Gardens (Fla.)

Martin took to social media recently to declare his intentions of committing to West Virginia. The Mountaineers appear to be the firm leader in the clubhouse it’s expected a visit will solidify his decision.
