Second junior day to bring out talent
The West Virginia football program will open its doors for the second major junior day of the spring Saturday and much like the first, the list of prospects expected to be in attendance does not disappoint.
Hubbard (Oh.) running back Larry Scott will once again be making the haul to Morgantown with his teammate and West Virginia commitment offensive lineman Matthew Jones. Both Rivals.com four-star players were present at the first junior day earlier this month and Jones actually ended up committing to the Mountaineers during the day's events.
Scott is one of the top prospects on the West Virginia board this cycle and that feeling has been reciprocated by the Rivals100 prospect, who claimed he even gave some thought to ending his recruitment last time he was on campus. In all, Scott has been to Morgantown five or six times this early into his overall recruitment.
One of the top offensive linemen in the country in Cincinnati (Oh.) Winton Woods Rivals250 prospect George Brown will be making his first trip to Morgantown and the two-way lineman is excited to see what the Mountaineers have in store.
Brown, 6-foot-7, 265-pounds, has offers from well over 40-programs and he will be accompanied by several teammates during his weekend stop.
Several quarterback prospects will be on campus Athens (Oh.) signal caller Joe Burrow already holds an offer from West Virginia and will be making his first trip, while a pair of unoffered throwers also will be on hand for Saturday.
Chattanooga (Tn.) Baylor School quarterback Nick Tiano has strong ties to the West Virginia program with much of his family and his father being originally from Clarksburg, as well as his dad graduating from WVU. McDonald (Pa.) South Fayette quarterback Brett Brumbaugh is coming off a prolific junior season and was recently invited to campus for the festivities by safeties coach Tony Gibson.
Reisterstown (Md.) Franklin athletes Jordan and Jacquez Adams also have indicated that they will be visiting Morgantown this weekend for the first time and both players currently list the Mountaineers high on their early list of schools. The twins want to play together at the next level and West Virginia has already offered both.
Morgantown (W.Va.) tight end and West Virginia commitment Stone Wolfley also will be one of the prospects in attendance and much like the Hubbard duo, the legacy is no stranger to the football program as his father Dale played offensive line for the Mountaineers and he has grown up around the program.
