Douglas Eyes Opportunity At West Virginia

West Virginia hosted a number of top prospects this past weekend including Garden City (N.Y.) Nassau C.C. cornerback Rasul Douglas.

Douglas (6’2, 200 lbs.) has additional official visits planned to Tennessee, UCF and Louisville but kicked off his tour with the Mountaineers.

“It was a great experience,” Douglas said. “The fans up here are crazy for football. I’ve only really seen two schools but [WVU] is at the top.”

The Mountaineer coaching staff was clear with their message to Douglas – they could use his experience and leadership next season.

“They said they need me and I would fit the system perfect,” Douglas explained. “The same techniques they’re teaching the players I’m learning from my coach at Nassau. They said I would play on the other side of [current Mountaineer] Darryl Worley. It's the Big 12 and it's a receivers and defensive backs league right here."

Douglas was certainly impressed with the gameday atmosphere despite the weather conditions.

“The atmosphere was insane and the fans are crazy,” Douglas said. “I’ve never seen anything like that before. But being on the field watching them warm-up and chilling with the team was great.”

Douglas plans to take four more official visits to UCF, Louisville, Tennessee and Rutgers before making a final decision.

“I’m narrowing it down but most likely I’ll make a decision the first week of December or right after my final visit,” he said.
