Morgantown, West Virginia – With seventeen recruits committed – 5 four star players and 12 three stars – West Virginia now officially has its best recruiting class in football ever.
In fact, West Virginia’s 2022 class is better than every other Big 12 Conference team other than Oklahoma (7th ranked) and Texas (10th). Currently ranked 17th in the nation, Neal Brown is doing something at West Virginia not previously thought possible.
Not only is Brown keeping the top players in the state at home, he’s also winning recruiting battles against traditional powerhouses.
While West Virginia is expected to improve drastically in Year 3 of Neal Brown’s tenure this season, the program is set up for even greater success in future years. Brown has filled future holes in his roster with outstanding players that are capable of stepping in and contributing immediately.
Four star commits Nicco Marchiol (quarterback), Jacolby Spells (cornerback), Justin Williams (running back), Kevin Thomas (wide receiver) and newest commit Travious Lathan (linebacker) are the kind of high school talents not often seen around Morgantown.
Several of the three star recruits committed to West Virginia are under-the-radar players (see: Raleigh Collins, Christion Stokes, Mumu Bin-Wahad, etc.) that are underrated by recruiting services and will be valuable players for the Mountaineers for years to come.
This is the type of recruiting class that will take West Virginia to an entirely new level. With a dynamic coaching staff in place, excellent facilities and the top recruiting class in program history, the sky is truly the limit for the West Virginia Mountaineers!
