Offensive lineman Jon Walko, who is one of West Virginia's top priorities on the offensive line, is scheduled to make the short trip from Germantown, Maryland to check out the action. Another offensive lineman, Rick Ingold of Newark, Ohio, is likewise set to get a look at the Mountaineer program.
Also scheduled are safety Sean Lee, who has had WVU high on his list throughout this year's recruiting process, and Monessen linebacker Ernest Williams, who would likewise be an excellent fit in one of the remaining positions of priority in the class of 2005. Both of those players, like Walko, figure to be the recipients of a full court press from the Mountaineer coaching staff.
Another interesting name on the visit list is Jason Fiacco of Hartland, Wisconsin. Fiacco, who has committed to Iowa State, is still interested enough in WVU to take the time for a trip to the Mountain State. Several other players who the Mountianeers have been pursuing are also scheduled to visit, including running backs Knowledge Timmons of York, Pa. and Ovid Goulbourne of Easton, Pa., and wide receiver Chris Rowell of Warrensville Heights, Ohio. Running back Spencer Farley of Morgantown is also on the list of players expected, as is Pickerington, Ohio's Evan Jablonka.
Players who have already verbally committed to WVU that are scheduled to visit include Jeremy Bruce, who could have an effect on the Pennsylvania players in town, as well as Ryan Dawson and Nathan Sowers.
Junior recruiting is also warming up, with several players from across the region expected for the battle for the Big East crown. Wide receiver Chris Fulmer of Nitro High School is expected for another visit, as is wideout Terrence McCrae of Connelsville, Pa.
Joining McCrae from the Keystone State will be offensive lineman Jason Pinkston of Baldwin and Nate Williams of Pittsburgh Central Catholic, the alma mater of the Bulger family. Williams has put up some impressive performances while substituting for Central Catholic's Eugene Jarvis at tailback, and could be one of the top performers in the region in 2005.
Finally, Brett Huffman, a multi-position athlete from Massillon, Ohio, is set to make the trek. Huffman is a tight end and defensive end prospect.
