WVU Recruiting: Junior Day Offers

West Virginia played host to a large group of football visitors this weekend, holding its first junior day of 2015. Several prospects walked away with more than memories of the visit after earning an official scholarship offer.

Despite being a few short days away from closing out the class of 2015, West Virginia welcomed a hefty amount of visitors on Saturday for junior day.

For some of the prospects in attendance it was more eventful than a typical junior day, as they collected an official offer from the Mountaineers.

BlueGoldNews.com recaps those prospects and their recruitment.

Ona (W.Va.) defensive end Reese Donahue certainly had a memorable trip. The 6-foot-4, 235-pound lineman, received his first official offer from the Mountaineers. And while a commitment wasn’t immediate, it’s likely it could be forthcoming.

Donahue led the state of West Virginia in sacks last season with 18.5. He also holds interest from Marshall, Purdue, Duke, Wake Forest and Nebraska among others.

Marietta (Ga.) tight end Sam Letton also received an offer from the Mountaineers.

Letton (6-4, 230-pounds) has also collected offers from Kentucky, Toledo, Western Kentucky and Charlotte.

This past season for Walton High,, Letton caught 42 passes for 651 yards and 10 touchdowns.

“I just loved everything about West Virginia,” Letton said, describing his overall thoughts on the trip. “It’s such a wonderful place there. I can’t wait to get back.”

Mammoth offensive tackle Elijah Johnson picked up his second official offer this past weekend from West Virginia, joining Rutgers who extended last month.

Johnson,a 6-5, 290-pound lineman from Dematha Catholic (Md.) felt the Mountaineer program is one he could see himself playing in.

“I loved everything about the visit, everything,” Johnson said. “It’s definitely a place I could see myself at. There’s a lot of good going on right now there.”
