West Virginia is targeting several different offensive linemen in the 2018 class, but the commitment of Bolivar (Tn.) Central offensive lineman Briason Mays is a big boost for the interior of the unit.

Mays, 6-foot-4, 285-pounds, hasn’t been on the Mountaineers radar for too long after receiving a scholarship offer from the program in mid-June, but quickly moved up his list. Immediately, West Virginia vaulted into his top group of schools and that was only further cemented after a visit to campus for the Showtime Event where he was able to tour the campus and meet with the coaches.

That visit effectively shook things up for Mays and it didn’t take long for him to decide to end his recruitment and pledge to the Mountaineers following in the footsteps of his high school quarterback Trey Lowe, who committed to the program in mid-July.
