Weekend Lite

Follwing last weekend's large group of football recruiting visitors, this week's numbers will be much smaller. That doesn't mean, however, that it's not important.

Just a handful of players will be on hand at the Puskar Center and across the campus this weekend, but included are players that the WVU coaching staff have been targeting for some time.

A pair of two-way stars, Elijah Fields of Duquesne High School and Brandon Heath of Palm Beach Lakes, will make their official visits this weekend. It is hoped that the two will finally make commitments to West Virginia and help firm up the class of 2006.

Also expected in is defensive end Marcus Broxie of Middleton High School in Tampa, Fla. Broxie is an excellent pass rusher who has more than 20 offers. He recently visited Rutgers and North Carolina State, and is also waiting for a possible offer from Alabama.

Wide receiver Jamar Howard, who was originally scheduled to visit this weekend, may make a trip on the final weekend (Ja, 27) before Signing Day, which is Feb. 1. West Virginia typically hosts a handful of scholarship offers as well as potential walk-on candidates on that last weekend.

With just a few scholarships left, WVU has sevral players it would still love to get commitments from, including Wes Lyons and J.D. Hamilton.
