Weekend Football Visits

Although not quite as big last weekend in terms of numbers, several high profile players make this weekend's football recruiting an important one.

Joe Sykes, a 6-4 240 pound defensive end from Holmes Community College, is one of the names on this weekend's list. Getting another defenisve lineman that can play immediately has become more important with the apparent loss of defensive lineman Kelvin Dubouse to academic deficiencies.

Another player scheduled to visit this weekend is Missippian Rickey Wright. Wright played quarterback this year but could excel at more than one spot in college, be it wide receiver or defensive back.

As is true with most top level Mississippi players, WVU will have to beat out both Ole Miss and Mississippi State for Wright's services. Wright has already visited the Bulldog campus, and is scheduled to visit Oxford next weekend.

Verbally committed players visiting this weeked include Vaughn Rivers, Eric Wicks and Davanzo Tate.
