One of Ohio's top o-line prospects is Chauncey Incarnato of Dover High School. On Friday Chauncey made another visit to one of the many schools that have made an offer. Many have asked why would one of Ohio's top players leave Buckeye land for the hills of West Virginia. I will tell you why! A coach!!!!
West Virginia University saw its football program rise to the level of greatness on offense. One of the many reasons for this rise was the play of the O-line. The unit is coached by one of the nations best college offensive line coaches. Rick Trickett is a master of getting the most out of his players. He feels the physical part of the game is small and the mental large. This ex U.S. Marine Corps veteran has coached at several large programs and seen many of his charges play on Sunday's.
A native of West Virginia, Coach Trickett started his coaching days at Glenville in 1973 and has seen his travels take him to LSU, Auburn and Mississippi State. While at each of these programs the O-lines were solid and many of his players became All-Conference while a few more became All-Americans. In this list of greats are Willie Anderson, Wayne Gandy, Shannon Robrique and Brandon Winey to name a few. This past season saw Lance Nimmo take the next step when he was drafted by Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay in the 4th round. Any player who is looking at having a chance at the next level needs a coach to help them along.
We had a chance to speak with Chauncey about his visit and he felt West Virginia has a lot to offer. "I enjoyed my visit at WVU. While we spent most of the day at the stadium we did have a chance to look around the campus and town some. WVU has some great facilities for football. I liked what I saw and could see me playing there. I really liked the O-line coach and the other coaches I had a chance to speak with. While looking around the campus we had a chance to see the student recreation center and I was impressed with what I saw. Overall West Virginia has a lot to offer, and I could see myself playing there".
While Chauncey has many offers at this time, he's also got a few others schools he would like to visit in the next few weeks. We would like to thank Chauncey for taking the time and letting us in on his recruiting. Stay with OhioPrepScene for more on Chauncey Incarnato in the coming weeks. In our other conversations with this young man he's talked about giving a verbal before the high school season starts. Will he be able to make an early choice with all the great schools after his services?
