Football Recruiting Weekend Roundup

Seven players visited the West Virginia University campus this weeked for a looksee at the Mountaineer football program.

As we noted in our weekend preview on Friday, the visitors included:

-Offensive lineman Dan Mozes (6-3, 285, 5.0), who has already committed to WVU.

-Linebacker Melik Brown and defensive back Jamil Tyson of Woodrow Wilson High School in Camden, New Jersey. WVU recently renewed their New Jersey ties with the commitment of Akeem Jackson, and the addition of either of these players would only boost West Virginia's ties in the Garden State.

-Linebacker Marvin Mitchell (6-2, 230) of Lake View High School in Norfolk, Virginia. As noted previously, Mitchell has given a visit to North Carolina, but that commitment many now be in question

-Quarterback Patrick Byrne (6-3, 180) of T.R. Miller High School in Brewton, Alabama. Byrne also shows promise as a kicking prospect, which has him fitting in nicely with the coaching staff's strageby of recruiting players capable of performing at multiple positions.

-Wide receiver Rayshawn Boldin (6-5, 190, 4.6) of John F. Kennedy High School in Cheektowaga, New York. Boldin has not received a great deal of notice, but his excellent size and hands make him an intriguing prospect.

-Wide receiver Eddie Jackson (6-4, 220) of Coffeyville Community College in Coffeyville, Kansas. The Jayhawk Conference has a long history of providing great skill position players to Division 1, and Jackson would do nothing to detract from that heritage. He's another big target that would be well suited for WVU's spread offense.

West Virginia came into the weekend with a total of 31 official visits left to provide. This weekend's totals leave 24 official visits for the next two weekends, although more could come in unoficially.
