Homecoming Yields Visit Opportunities

West Virginia will host approximately 15-20 visitors for its Homecoming game against Mississippi State this weekend.

Headlining the list are Carlton Thomas, Supo Sanni, Vince Harris and Joe Pachuta, who have all been offered scholarships by the Mountaineers. Harris, who committed to West Virginia last year before diverting to The Harmony School in Cincinnati, is an outside linebacker prospect that could enroll in January if he earns qualifying test scores. Sanni, Thomas and Pachuta are all highly regarded prospects that would certainly add to the luster of West Virginia's committed players list.

Thomas, who previously verballed to Georgia, is also scheduled to make an official visit, and while his commitment to the Bulldogs has been termed solid, it won't keep West Virginia and other schools from attempting to sway him, especially in light of his willingness to make trips elsewhere.

Wide receiver A.J. Alexander, who appears to be solidly favoring Penn State at this time, is also scheduled to make a visit, and although he hasn't mentioned West Virginia much recently, the Mountaineers have been known to make huge headway when they get players on campus.

On the commitment list, linemen Josh Jenkins, John Bassler and Jeff Braun are slated for visits, and their presence will certainly be used to help influence Pachuta, who is an excellent prospect in his own right.

Others who could be in attendance include Matt Lindamood, Tyler Warner, Deion Spurlock, Ken Trimble, Mark Sampson and Beau Wilson.
