Defensive Help

West Virginia's early recruiting commitments have weighed toward the offensive side of the ball, but the Mountaineers have begun balancing that out with the addition of a versatile safety from Maryland.

Terence Garvin, a 6-2, 210-pound safety from Loyola Blakefield High School in Baltimore, Md., has committed to West Virginia. A two-way player for the Dons, he had 42 tackles and three picks from his safety position last year. He also played on offense, recording 880 rushing yards and 15 scores.

At West Virginia, Garvin is expected to start out on defense. With three safety positions in the Mountaineer defensive scheme, the solidly-built Garvin will have a range of positions into which he could fit.

Garvin also had an offer from Maryland and interest from Syracuse, Virginia, Connecticut and North Carolina State.
