In addition to the now well-know contingent from Florida, at least two dozen other recruiting vistors will take in West Virginia's game against Cincinnati on Saturday evening.

Miramar High School will be sending quarterback Eugene Smith, lineman Morel Pierre and wide receiver Stedman Bailey for official visits this weekend. They'll be accompanied by running back Daquan Hargrett, who says he is still committed to WVU despite checking out other schools. Also on the official list are wide receiver Deon Long, who has been a frequent visitor to WVU's campus this fall, and linebacker Brian Leffler, who has spend a previous weekend at West Virginia and could be close to making a decision.

That's by no means the entire visit story, however. Verbal commitments Logan Heastie, Pat Eger, Jordan Weingart, Cole Bowers, Nick Kindler, Branko Busick and Ryan Spiker will also be making repeat visits to WVU, and will certainly be involved in the recruiting efforts of the official visitors this weekend.

Other familar names on the visit list include Phil Peckich of Montour High School, Taige Redman of Keyser, Matt Preston of Howland High School, Dewey McDonald of Jefferson High, Nicholas Bernhardy of Penn Hills, Mike Lawler of Tri-Valley, Davon Marion of Mount Hope, Justin Johnson of Parkersburg and Blake Brooks of South Charleston.

In all, at least 30 visitors are expected for the Saturday night battle for the top spot in the Big East conference.
