Weekend Visits Set

Approximately two dozen players are scheduled to make official or unofficial visits to West Virginia this weekend when the Mountaineers host East Carolina.

Verbal commitments Josh Jenkins (Parkersburg HS) and Jermaine Robinson (Brashear HS) head the list of players from across the region who are scheduled to take in the game and tour the WVU campus on the weekend in which the Mountaineers induct another class of honorees into its hall of fame.

Two of the higher profile targets on the list are Gateway (Pa.) High School's Shayne Hale and Cameron Saddler, both of whom have the Mountaineers high on their list of final schools. Teammate Corey Brown will also accompany the pair to WVU. Another pair of Pennsylvania teammates, Brashear's Ed Tinker and Quamane Bryant, will accompany Robinson on another trip to the WVU campus. All three were on hand for West Virginia's rising senior camp, and will be getting a look at the gameday atmosphere on the WVU campus.

Jenkins won't be alone either, as teammate Matt Lindamood, who has been tearing up the competition from his running back positions, is also scheduled to be in attendance. Other in-state players who are set to take a visit include University High School's Ryan Nehlen, Cabell Midland's Cole Bowers, Huntington's Craig Crawford, South Charleston's Deion Spurlock, Wayne's Joey Ferguson and Capital's Malik Witten.

West Virginia is also undoubtedly happy to be getting a visit from star running back Onterio McCalebb, who remains a top target of the Mountaineer staff. McCalebb, from Fort Meade High School in Florida, would be an outstanding addition to the class of 2008.

Also set to be in attendance are a number of Ohio players, including kicker Pat Jacob of Solon High School, offensive lineman Phillip Manley and cornerback Kenny Veal of Hamilton High School, offensive lineman Justin Ray of St. Thomas Aquinas High School (Louisville) and offensive lineman Alex Wallace of Logan.

Athlete Leon Green of Gateway High School, offensive tackle Wayne Tribue of Central york and wide receiver Chad Dixon of Warrior Run round out the Pennsylvanians scheduled to be in attendance.
