Twins commit to WVU
West Virginia picked up two 2015 verbal commitments Saturday at the Mountaineers second junior day when a set of twin brothers pledged to Dana Holgorsen's football program.
Reisterstown (Md.) Franklin athletes Jordan Adams and Jacquez Adams committed to the Mountaineers over social media while on their unofficial visit to Morgantown Saturday afternoon.
Jordan, 6-foot-1, 160-pounds, is being recruited as an athlete with the ability to play multiple positions and selected the Mountaineers over offers from Virginia Tech, Wisconsin, Maryland, Vanderbilt, N.C. State and several others.
"I just committed, this school is lovely," Adams informed WVSports.com.
Jacquez, 6-foot, 165-pounds, is a high school quarterback but is being recruited by the West Virginia staff to play slot receiver, although he can line up at several different spots for the Mountaineers. He held another offer from Wisconsin and was being recruited by several other programs with high interest in the talented athlete.
"Committed to West Virginia University!!! #blessed," Adams wrote on social media.
Lonnie Galloway served as the lead recruiter for both prospects and the wide receivers coach was one of the first to offer Jordan, while becoming the first to offer Jacquez. That loyalty won out in the end for the twins, who were impressed enough on their visit to end their recruitments.
West Virginia now has 9 commitments in the class of 2015 and WVSports.com will have more with both prospects including full interviews after they leave campus.
