Football Recruiting Visits

The next several weeks are crucial for the direction of the Mountaineer football team as recruting season swings into full gear.

First, let's recap a few visits from last weekend:

Tight end Nathan Forse of Laurel Highlands, Pennsylvania, took in the action at the Backyard Brawl. Forse (6-5, 210) was a big part of Laurel Highland's passing attack from his tight en spot, and snared more than 100 yards worth of passes in a game late in the season.

Forse could also be a defensive end in college.

Other visitors include running back/defensive Bryan Wright of Hampshire County, who has been at just about every WVU function this season.

A pair of Ohio visitors, quarterback Scott Hinton and Josh Ball from Amanda Clearcreek High School were also on campus for the weekend. Amanda Clearcreek is the defending Division V state champion, and is lead by Hinton, who is the nephew of head coach Ron Hinton.

Also visiting were offensive lineman Jeremy Sheffy (6-3 230) Boyd County High School in Ashland, Kentucky, and Roy Shoyer of Connellsville (PA) High School.

This weekend, a number of official visitors are expected, with the emphasis being on Ohio players. Included in the official visit numbers are several players who have already verbally committed to the Mountaineers.
