The highly touted Devine, who is 5-8, 170 lbs., played at North Fort Myers (Fla.) High, where he set school and Lee County career rushing records with 6,846 yards and 92 touchdowns. The Fort Myers News-Press All-Area Player of the Year and a three-year Florida Sports Writers Association Class 5A all-state selection, Devine finished his senior season with 2,148 yards rushing and 31 touchdowns.
"We're very excited that Noel has made the decision to join the Mountaineer family," says Rodriguez. "We know he is working hard to meet all his eligibility requirements, and we're confident he can get that done. Coach James Iandoli and the staff at North Fort Myers High have been a tremendous asset to this young man in preparing for his future."
Devine was selected for the U.S. Army All-America game, and was listed among the top prep honorees by publications across the nation, rushing for more than 1,100 yards as a freshman, 1,600 as a sophomore, 1,900 as a junior and 2,100 as a senior. Last fall, he led the Red Knights to an 11-2 mark and the third round of the state playoffs.
