Seider follows in family footsteps
West Virginia added a commitment from a prospect that has strong ties to the Mountaineers football program with the pledge of Glades Central (Fla.) offensive lineman Jah'Shaun Seider.
Seider is the younger brother of current running backs coach JaJuan and while he entered the weekend without a scholarship offer, earned one with his performance at the Mountaineers one-day camp. He then elected to end his recruitment by committing to Dana Holgorsen's football program shortly after.
"It's great. It' a family thing," he said.
It wasn't the first time on campus for Seider who had previously visited for camp last summer and spent a week in Morgantown during the spring, but it was the most rewarding as the Mountaineers extended a scholarship offer to the rising senior.
The 6-foot-2, 287-pounder, selected West Virginia over offers from LSU, Louisville, Minnesota, Mississippi, South Florida, Illinois and Cincinnati, among others and has the ability to play several positions along the offensive front for the Mountaineers. He is being recruited to potentially play any of the five positions along the offensive front.
Seider becomes the third offensive line commitment for the Mountaineers and joins Hubbard (Oh.) offensive lineman Matthew Jones and Belmont (Oh.) Union Local offensive tackle Colton McKivitz.
Overall Seider becomes the 15th commitment for West Virginia in the class of 2015 and is rated as a three-star prospect by Rivals.com.
