Neal Brown and the Mountaineers appear to have found a potential replacement for placekicker Casey Legg.
Michael Hayes, a graduate transfer kicker/punter from Georgia State, committed to WVU earlier this evening.
Hayes has connected on 12 of 15 kicks throughout his career, including a long of 51. He has also punted 165 times for an average of 41.5 yards per kick with a long of 66.
He will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
