The Neal Brown Effect

Morgantown, West Virginia – The West Virginia Mountaineers 2022 recruiting class is absolutely on fire and could go down as one of the best in school history by the time it’s all said and done.

With the commitment of one of the best offensive guards in the country, Landen Livingston, West Virginia is now ranked as the 23rd best in the 2022 class.

That’s better than powerhouse programs like USC (24), Florida (30), Michigan State (31), Clemson (33), Wisconsin (37) and Tennessee (38).

Dana Holgorsen’s Houston, if you were curious, is currently ranked #93 in the nation.  Didn’t he say you can’t get recruits to come to Morgantown?  

The 2022 class currently has 14 commits featuring quarterback Nicco Marchiol, cornerback Jacolby Spells, running back Justin Williams, defensive ends Aric Burton and Zion Young, offensive linemen Maurice Hamilton, Sully Weidman and Charlie Katarincic, wide receiver Jarel Williams, athletes Tyrin Woodby and Christion Stokes, tight end Corbin Page and defensive back Mumu Bin-Wahad.

During Brown’s first two seasons in Morgantown, he was left with little to work with and spent most of his time changing the culture and building his vision from the ground up.  Each and every commit this season has cited the culture and family atmosphere that Brown and his staff have built as the main reason for committing to play for the Mountaineers.

Neal Brown is building something special at West Virginia and this is only the beginning.  Several more big name recruits are expected to commit to the Mountaineers in the coming days.

If four star linebacker Travious Lathan and four star athlete Jaden Mangham both commit – as they are almost certain to do – West Virginia could end up with a top 10-15 recruiting class, which is unheard of for the Mountaineers.

Neal Brown and his staff are absolutely killing it right now!
