Commits and Visits

WVU has received a commitment from a wide receiver even as the staff is on the road for visits and new names surface on the Mountaineer recruiting list.

Wide receiver Rayshawn Boldin of John F. Kennedy High School in Cheektowaga, New York is the latest commitment for the Mountaineers.

At 6-5 and 195 pounds, Boldin has the size and frame that Steve Bird is looking for in his receivers, but the proof, of course, will be on the field in the fall.

Despite playing in the suburbs of Buffalo, Boldin escaped the notice of local schools like Syracuse, but film evaluation told West Virginia's staff all they needed to know about the lanky wideout.

While that commitment came in, some of WVU's coaches were on the road making inhome visits. One of those is scheduled to take place with Pennsylvania RB/LB Nate Schiccatano, who appears to be leaning to Penn State after a weekend visit there. The Mountaineers haven't given up on the powerful two way player, however.

One of many players scheduled to visit this coming weekend is Memphis, Tennessee's Brandon Wright. Wright is a speedy wide recevier/defensive back who also has Tennessee, Arkansas and Misssippi State on his final list.

Another name recently appearing on the radar screen was that of Jason Colson, a multiposition player from Edison Tech in Rochester, New York. Colson, who could play running back, wide receiver or defensive back, was also an outstanding track performer. Colson was the Section V Class AA player of the year for his performance at running back, where he totalled 1400 yards and 13 touchdowns in only eight games.

We'll have more to come on visits as recruiting season comes to a peak over the next two weekends.
