Present and Future Classes Visit for Spring

A number of recruits for the classes of 2002 and 2003 were on campus for West Virginia's Gold-Blue scrimmage game last Saturday.

Recruiting for the class of 2003 is already well underway, and at least four players who have been offered by the Mountaineer staff took in Saturday's game.

They include Morgantown (WV) running back/defensive back Geremy Rodamer, Washington (PA) running back Travis Thomas, Palmyra (PA) linebacker Joe Brockington, and Woodrow Wilson (NJ) wide receiver/linebacker Turk McBride.

Rodamer, whose brother attends Notre Dame, is a playmaker of the type that the WVU offense is looking for.

Thomas, a teammate of WVU commitment Dan Mozes, is a powerful back who shows a great combination of size and speed. Behind Mozes, Thomas rushed for 1100 yards and 23 TDs last season.

Brockington is a 6-2, 210 pound linebacker/running from Palmyra, Pennsylvania. He could easily play more than one position, and earned all county honors on both offense and defense as a junior.

McBride is the younger brother of WVU signee Jamil Tyson, a tie which will hopefully give the Mountaineers a leg up on his recruitment. He is a 6-4, 220 combination of size and speed that allows him to play both wide receiver and defensive end/linebacker in high school. His future appears to be on the defensive side of the ball in college.

A number of WVU signees were also in attendance at the game, including Adam Serena, Akeem Jackson, Jay Henry, Erick Phillips, Jason Colson, Rachid Stoury, Fred Blueford, and Charles Hales.

All four players have been offered scholarships
