Visit Season Begins Again

In addition to the excitement of games, the beginning of football season also marks the return of mass visits to college campuses.

Although a few visits occur over the summer, the pace really picks up once home games begin, and the story is no different at West Virginia.

Approximately 20-25 players will make the trip to Morgantown to check out the Mountaineer - Badger battle and get a first hand look at the WVU program.

At least two players who have made verbal commitments to West Virginia - quarterback/safety Mortty Ivy and offensive lineman Ben Iannachione - will be on hand for the nationally televised contest.

Several other recruiting targets that are high on the Mountaineers' list will also be in attendance. Woodland Hills (Penn.) safety Devon Lyons, who also visited WVU during the spring, will make a visit to the West Virginia campus. Lyons is being pursued by a number of national programs, and a visit to WVU could bode well.

A familiar face who will also be in is tight end Joe Bragg of Morgantown High School. Bragg is well-acquainted with WVU's facilities, having attended camps in addition to living right across town.

Another in-state player who has drawn the coaches' attention is Keyser offensive lineman Matt Altobello, who attended WVU's summer camp. He is scheduled to be among the weekend's visitors, and with West Virginia still planning to add at least two offensive linemen to this class, figures to be on the Mountaineers' radar all fall.

Yet another line prospect who plans to make the trip is Adam Snyder of John F Kennedy High School in Warren, Ohio. At 6-5, Snyder could also grow into an offensive line prospect.
