West Virginia Now In the Driver’s Seat for Top Quarterback

Earlier this week, West Virginia added Brandon Rehmann, a three star wide receiver, and the high school teammate of Samaj Jones, a four star quarterback.  

MORGANTOWN, WV – The West Virginia Football coaching staff is hard at work putting together the 2024 recruiting class, adding multiple players over the past week. However, none may be more important than Brandon Rehmann, a three star wide receiver from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The reason?

He just so happens to be the high school teammate of Pennsylvania’s top-rated quarterback, Samaj Jones, at St. Joseph’s Prep School. Jones recently released his final four schools, which included Penn State, Cincinnati, Oklahoma and West Virginia, but the Mountaineers have long been considered the favorite to land him.

Now, with his former teammate on board, the chances of Samaj Jones committing to play for the Mountaineers goes way up. When Rehmann committed to West Virginia earlier in the week, Jones immediately post the following message on Twitter:


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.
