Morgantown is Wondy-ful

A pair of Lely High prospects descended upon Morgantown over the weekend for their official visits and both came away very impressed. caught up with Wondy Pierre-Louis to get his take on a snowy trip to West Virginia.

Wondy Pierre-Louis a 6-foot-2, 175 pound, cornerback from Lely High in Naples, Fla, was in Morgantown, W. Va. over the weekend for his second official visit of the year. Pierre-Louis had previously ventured to Minnesota before travelling to check out the West Virginia program. The standout defensive back estimates he has approximately 26 scholarship offers.

"I have offers from West Virginia, Minnesota, UCF, Wisconsin, Indiana, Troy State, Ball State, Florida Atlantic and a bunch of others," Pierre-Louis said. "This was my second official. I have been to Minnesota, and I have a visit scheduled to Wisconsin on Dec. 16th."

When Pierre-Louis was asked to describe his visit to West Virginia, he gave it rave reviews.

"It was very good, I liked everything about it. The players and coaches were great. My host ( Dee) McCann was great. I learned a lot about the academics and they have a good team, those guys like to win and so do I. The town is nice and the Mountaineers are all that matters there, the fans are very supportive. It snowed up there, but I'm used to it. I have family in Buffalo and I have been there several times."

Pierre-Louis hasn't had what one would call an easy road to becoming a top flight football prospect, considering he just arrived in Florida four years ago from Haiti, which is not exactly known for its American football.

"It was very new to me indeed. My first year as a freshman I played running back and they told me where to go and I would go through the hole and just run. My sophomore season I was playing wide receiver and defensive back and I started to learn what I was doing. My junior year I knew what I was doing and I took over. This year I was an impact player."

Pierre-Louis would make an excellent addition to the cornerback class that already includes Ryan Brinson and Robert Williams, and West Virginia is expected to continue to push hard for a commitment from the oustanding defensive back.
