Some of those players have rescheduled their visits for this weekend. Verbal commitments on the list include Blackhawk's Jeremy Bruce, Weir's Zac Cooper, Parkersburg South's Ryan Dawson, and Shenandoah Valley's Frank Carduff, all of whom had games or plans affected by the remnants of Hurricane Ivan.
One of the top uncommitted players on this weekend's visit list is side receiver David Harvey of Penn Hills High School, who recently listed the Mountaineers as his favorite. Harvey has offers from a number of Big Ten schools, as well as from Pittsburgh and West Virginia in the Big East, and is among the top 20 players at his position in the country.
Harvey's teammate Ed Collington is also scheduled to make the short trip down Interstate 79 to check out gameday at WVU.
Offensive lineman Matt Hesseltine of Smyrna High school is the lead offensive lineman on this week's list. Hesseltine camped at WVU, and has had the Mountaineers high on his list of prospective schools as well.
Although the visits aren't offical, underclassmen will also be represented over the weekend. Morgantown's Charlie Russell, a sophomore quarterback whose profile continues to rise, will be on hand, as will junior Wes Lyons, the younger brother of Woodland Hills, Pa., standout Devon Lyons, who graduated last year and is attending Ohio State this year.
