Weekend Football Visits Winding Down

Four visits are scheduled on the next to last football recruiting weekend of the season, with three skill position players leading the way.

Darius Packer, an All-State selection in Class 6A in Alabama, was an outstanding two-way talent at Vigor High School. He earned notice at defensive back on several all state teams, and is a hard-hitting, physical tackler.

Running back Raymond Williams will also make the short trip to the WVU campus after piling up rushing totals that may make that jaunt seem short by comparison. Williams racked up almost 6,000 yards in his junior and senior seasons, and was named the Associated Press Division III offensive player of the year and Mr. Football as the top prep player in the state.

West Virginia is still looking for at least one more wide receiver, and Darius Reynaud is one of the best targets left on the table. The Louisiana speedster has been visited at his home by the Mountaineer coaching staff, and will check out the WVU campus this weekend.

The final visitor is big Florida lineman Jerald Robinson. Robinson, who made the drive from Fort Pierce to take in a WVU Gator Bowl practice session, has not yet qualified.
