Not only has West Virginia locked up the core members of its offensive line from 2023 for 2024, but a recruit now commits to join them. Three-star offensive lineman Lucas Austin announced his commitment to the WVU football program on Saturday morning.

Austin, who is listed at 6-foot-7 and 265 pounds, will be a member of West Virginia’s 2024 recruiting class. He is a third-team All-State product out of Sterling High School in Sterling, Illinois. Austin’s commitment comes days after taking an official visit to WV on Dec. 11.

Austin fits the versatility WVU offensive line coach Matt Moore likes in his linemen. He has experience at both tackle positions, guard, and even at tight end. He’s rated among the top 40 prospects in his state. Austin also played basketball in high school.

In addition to the Mountaineers, Austin was weighing offers from Air Force, Army, Columbia, Dartmouth, Eastern Michigan, Illinois State, Miami (OH), Northern Illinois, Northern Iowa, Northwestern, Southern Illinois, and a few others.
