West Virginia football’s busy summer season of recruiting has continued with a wave of visits, offers and camps in Morgantown. One of those recruits has come in the form of a 2023 Florida wide receiver.
4-star wide out Andy Jean from Northwestern High School in Miami, Florida picked up an offer from WVU on Wednesday. Jean (6-foot-1, 170 pounds) also has offers from Georgia, Miami (Fl.), Pittsburgh and UCF.
After a phone call with WVU tight ends and inside wide receivers coach Travis Trickett, Jean officially received the offer.
“The phone call was great,” Jean told WVSN. “An awesome person to talk to and felt like I knew him for years. I felt great when I found out I got the offer.”
While Jean isn’t too familiar with WVU yet, he said it’s time for him to begin “digging deep” into the school now. He doesn’t have a visit ironed out yet, but he said he should be heading up to Morgantown in the future.
Even if Jean isn’t quite sure yet what he’d get in WVU, the Mountaineers would be getting a speedy, electric wide receiver in him.
Jean has excellent size, especially for a player with time to grow, and he’s sure-handed and explosive with the ball in his hands. He’s a 400-meter sprinter on Northwestern’s track team, too, showing his speed and endurance. With size, speed and stamina, he’s a fast-rising recruit in Florida.
Though only a rising junior, Jean’s enjoyed the recruiting process so far. He said it’s been really nice having bigger schools coming after him and showing strong interest.
Regardless of where Jean’s path takes him, he knows what he has to offer WVU or any school that he eventually decides to sign with.
“I offer WVU a great kid,” Jean said. “A kid that’s going to keep the same attitude on the field every day — on the field and in the classroom. I’m a hard-working player, not only a player but an awesome kid in the classroom that’s going to work hard to get where I want to be in life.”
