West Virginia Head Coach Neal Brown and his staff have been busy landing big-time recruit after big-time recruit, but there’s one player out there that would really put icing on the 2021 cake.
Geno VanDeMark, a 6’4 313 pound offensive guard from Montvale, New Jersey, is precisely what the Mountaineers need to complete an already impressive future offensive line. Wyatt Milum, the four star in-state tackle and Tomas Rimac, the recent offensive guard commit from Ohio, already form an imposing front for the Mountaineers’ future, but adding VanDeMark would push West Virginia to a whole other level.
VanDeMark, a four star prospect, currently holds 19 offers from the best programs in the country, including Arizona State, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Miami, Michigan State, Louisville, Oklahoma State, Syracuse, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Pitt, Purdue and of course West Virginia.
Brian Dohn, a national recruiting analyst, compares VanDeMark to the Denver Broncos’ Ronald Leary: “VanDeMark has a frame with power to play interior. Comfortable on right or left. Athleticism shows when pulling. When staying low, his power shines. Can scrape and get to second level. Strong upper body. Engages quickly, drives legs and can turn block. Strong initial punch. Fires off quickly and low when sinking hips. Needs to be more consistent. Sometimes lacks flexibility and ability to move laterally in pass pro. Becoming more flexible at knees instead of bending at waist needed. Multi-year starter for Top 25 program. Day 3 NFL draft pick.”
VanDeMark’s Instagram following his visit to Morgantown says it all:
“The script was already written, I just had to play the part…” Geno VanDeMark was born to play for the Mountaineers and we believe he will eventually find his home tucked in the mountains of West Virginia. COME HOME, GENO.
