West Virginia has already picked up two commitments from the group of recruits who visited Morgantown on June 4th, and there could be another one on the way soon.
2022 3-star athlete Christion Stokes from Harper Woods High School in Harper Woods, Michigan will announce where he will play college football on July 10th. Stokes (6-foot-0, 180 pounds) appears to have narrowed his final three schools down to WVU, Michigan State and Iowa.

Stokes, the 494th-ranked recruit in the class of 2022 (14th-ranked recruit from the state of Michigan) visited WVU earlier this month, and he was excited to finally visit the campus when he talked to WVSN the day before.
“The coaching staff at West Virginia are just great guys,” Stokes said. “I love talking to them and it’s been fun to be able to talk to them regularly. I talk to their coaches like they’re my family. Even before Coach Wright got to West Virginia, he was talking to me when he was with Western Michigan. The fact that he’s still trying to be my coach and that he still wants to coach me, it’s amazing. It’s amazing to get that much love from coaches and also know that they’re going to keep things honest with me.”

After Stoke’s visit to Iowa on Friday, he’s in line to finally come to the end of his recruiting cycle. His Top 7 schools in January featured Michigan State, Toledo, Kansas, Cincinnati, WVU, Central Michigan and Iowa.
Stokes would be the eighth recruit in WVU’s 2022 class, joining quarterback Nicco Marchiol, tight end Corbin Page, offensive tackle Sullivan Weidman, wide receiver Jarel Williams, offensive lineman Maurice Hamilton, safety Mumu Bin-Wahad, safety Tyrin Woodby and offensive lineman Charlie Katarincic.
