The Future of West Virginia Football

Pennsylvania prospect Maj Jones has been hinting at a potential commitment to WVU. What would the Mountaineers be getting in the talented signal-caller?

Morgantown, WV – The West Virginia Football coaching staff is hard at work putting together the 2024 recruiting class. As of this moment, the Mountaineers have three commits in this class, but several should be added over the course of the summer.

One player fans have had their eyes on is Pennsylvania’s top-rated quarterback, Maj Jones.

Jones, who holds a 4-star composite rating on 247Sports, and has narrowed his decision down to four schools – WVU, Oklahoma, Penn State, and Cincinnati. He holds 12 total offers.

Over the weekend, Jones took his official visit to Morgantown.

Should the Mountaineers land Jones, what would they be getting in the signal-caller? The answer is simple – they will be securing their future signal-caller.

During his junior season, Jones was incredible in leading his team to a 6A Pennsylvania State Championship. He accumulated 2,525 passing yards to go along with 32 passing touchdowns. On the ground, Jones was electric, putting together 740 rushing yards and 14 rushing touchdowns.

Should the Mountaineers land him, they would be getting a dual-threat. In the program’s history, they have always been significantly more successful with a quarterback who is skilled in both rushing and passing. Jones certainly possesses the talent to be a force in the West Virginia backfield, and would likely receive early playing time.

If Neal Brown wants to turn around his fortunes in Morgantown, landing a player like Jones would surely help. He has the potential to be the face of the program, and leave an impact that will be felt for several years to come.
