New Jersey Defensive Back Hopes For Offer

New Jersey has been a good recruiting area for West Virginia over the past two decades, and a defensive back from the Garden State hopes to continue that trend.

Mysonn Ledet, a running back and defensive back from Neptune High School in New Jersey, attended WVU's rising senior camp.

"I liked WVU's camp," Ledet said recently. "Everyone there was excited about the football team. This was my first visit to WVU.

"The recruiting process is going good - I'm just waiting for offers. I like Coach Hand a lot, and Coach Rodriguez was really cool. He was honest, and wasn't fake at all. He was just a regular person."

Despite his lack of offers, Ledet is well-regarded on the national scene. He has attended national seven-on-seven camps, and has been to a number of individual camps such as Nike, the Elite combine, the MSL combine, and the Big Time combine. He also will attend camp at Rutgers.

Ledet also uses his speed on the track, specializing in the 110 hurdles. He has a sub-4.5 second forty-yard dash time.

Ledet is primed for two way duty this year after playing only defense for the past couple of seasons. He'll likely play some running back in addition to corenrback on defense, but his future in college is at a third position.

"I like playing safety," Ledet noted. "I get to run the field and make hits, and I like that. Safety lets you get into the action more. That's where I will probably play in college."

Ledet was certainly in the action last year, recording 42 tackles, nine pass break-ups and three forced fumbles to go along with one interception. He currently measures in at 5-11 and 190 pounds.

"I want to get more interceptions and make more plays this year," he added. "Most of our opponents run the ball a lot, so we don't get a chance to show what we can do in the secondary sometimes.

Despite being a couple of states away, Ledet has been a fan of the Mountaineers for several years.

"I always watched them on TV, and I liked watching Amos Zereoue," Ledet noted. "Also, we run the same defense that WVU runs, so I like that."
