The latest in West Virginia football recruiting

The latest in West Virginia football and hoops recruiting.

------- West Virginia is hosting 2018 two-way lineman Luke Tenuta today, confirming what was first reported by Michael Clark. The 6-foot-7, 250-pound prospect arrived in Morgantown last night and will be touring the campus and facilities throughout the day today. He's ranked on some outlets as a strong-side defensive end, and is listed as a tight end for his secondary position, but he tells me he is being recruited as an offensive tackle. He already holds offers from Cincinnati, East Carolina, UCF, and more. I would not be surprised if he got an offer during the visit. He's been talking regularly with Tony Dews this spring, and says one of his main goals is to get to meet the rest of the coaching staff. I will catch up with him later tonight or tomorrow to hear how things went.

------- I caught up with Jacksonville (FL) Providence quarterback Carter Bradley about his new West Virginia offer, and he tells me that he learned of it via a call with offensive coordinator Jake Spavital. The two have been building a relationship all spring, says Bradley, and the other night, Spavital just asked him to give him a call because he had a surprise. Bradley was understandably pumped and says he is working on getting up to campus for a visit, but he had nothing set at this time. He plans to go throw for Florida, Georgia, and a few others this summer, too. I'll have more in a full story.

------- We reported on the new offer to Coffeyville (KS) C.C. offensive lineman Reuben Lewis the other day, and I spoke with him last night. He tells me that he was thrilled with the offer from West Virginia, as it was one he wanted even back in high school. He's tight with Joe Wickline and says he really gets along well with him. He hopes to visit campus this summer for an official visit. He's also hearing from Auburn, Florida State, and Oklahoma State, but the fact that WVU was first to offer "means a lot.... it is very big to me." I'll have more in a full story in the coming days.

------- Another name to know on the hoops side of things is Jonathan Kuminga. He's a young guy - only eighth grade at the moment - but he was up on campus this past weekend, too, and he's already 6-foot-8 and looks like a grown man. From the guys I've spoken with about him, Kuminga looks as good or better as any young guy they've seen at that age. West Virginia has taken notice, that's for sure.
