Maryland, D.C., PA Highlight Scheduled Visits

With Maryland coming to town, a number of high school players from that state are planning on visiting the West Virginia campus this weekend.

One of the highest rated visitors is Vernon Davis of Dunbar High School in Washington, D.C. Davis, who could play several positions in college, has over thirty offers.

Another Maryland native is Taros Harris of Calvert High School in Prince Fredrick. Harris is a cover corner and kick returner who is high on the Mountaineers' list.

Maryland is not the only state on the recruiting schedule, however. Pennsylvania will also be well represented on this week's list.

Two teammates from Pottstown High School, Terrence Shawell and Brandon Nixon, are scheduled to make the trip from Pennsylvania to check out the WVU program. Shawell, a quarterback, and Nixon, an offensive lineman, would both be great additions to the Mountaineers.

WVU won't be ignoring instate recruiting either. Huntington wide receiver Hiram Moore is scheduled to make the trip to the state's flagship University on Saturday.

Joining Moore will be a number of juniors, which the Mountaineers recruiting staff is targeting more heavily this year. Among the juniors scheduled to visit are Martinsburg wide receiver Brandon Barrett, Poca tight end Tony Sitello and Uniontown linebacker Billy McLee.

There could be as many as 50-60 visitors at Mountaineer Field this Saturday, including unofficial visitors and juniors. Several of those players are considering both WVU and Maryland, so this Saturday's game could have a big impact on more than one recruiting decision in February.
