Morgantown, West Virginia – The West Virginia coaching staff has made landing a talented linebacker a priority this offseason, but they received really bad news moments ago when former four star linebacker Amari Gainer committed to play for the University of North Carolina instead of for the Mountaineers.
Gainer, a former four star player out of Tallahassee, Florida, was high school teammates with West Virginia quarterback Garrett Greene. Gainer has played for the Florida State Seminoles for the past four seasons, where he is the active career leader in tackles for the program with 210 during his time in Tallahassee.
This is a really tough blow for the Mountaineers. Gainer is not only a extremely talented player on the field in a position that West Virginia really needs help at, he’s also a respected leader in the locker room.
