Andre Sumpter Commits

WVU has reportedly received another verbal commitment from wide receiver Andre Sumpter of Jacksonville, Florida.

Sumpter (6-0, 170) may have gotten lost in the shuffle of the large number of wide receivers in the Jacksonville area this year, but the WVU coaching staff was impressed enough to offer a scholarship, which Sumpter has accepted.

WVU is involved with other receivers in the Jacksonville area, including Kenneth Tookes of First Coast High School.

Sumpter plays for Englewood High School, which has been near the bottom of the standings in their district the past couple of seasons. The Rams went 0-10 in 2000, which doesn't exactly help players get noticed.

Sumpter played mostly quarterback for Englewood the past two seasons, but he projects to a wide receiver in college.
