2024 3-Star OL Recruit Kahlil House Believes in Cultural Fit of WVU

There are many reasons an athlete may pick a team or program, but sometimes it just simply boils down to the fit. WVU football recruit Kahlil House explained to WV Sports Now why he feels West Virginia is a place that may fit him perfectly.

House (6-foot-4, 295 pounds), a class of 2024 three-star offensive lineman who recently included the Mountaineers among his top 12 schools, loves the environment and cultural vibe of Morgantown and WVU above all else. “Real good program. I like where the campus is located. It’s not a real big city and the coaches are great as well,” said House.

A Warner Robins, Georgia native, House isn’t looking for the bright lights of a big city. Instead, he’s seeking a more rural place to thrive, both as a player and as a person. To be exact, House wants to find a program that can help develop his game on the field and also provide him a solid education off of it.

West Virginia Lands in Top 12 for 2024 3-Star OL

This has to be music to the ears of the coaches at WVU. There are some bigger cities in the group of schools House is currently considering.

At the end of the day, House may realize he’d rather spend his college years in Morgantown, West Virginia instead of attending the University of Cincinnati and living in Cincinnati, Ohio, moving to Pittsburgh from a small town in Georgia and becoming a Pitt Panther, or going to UCF and calling Orlando, Florida home. Of course, the University of Louisville in Louisville, Kentucky would deliver a similar culture to West Virginia University. Those are just some examples from his other options.

If fit is what House wants to find in a program, does that coincide with what WVU thinks of House? “They like how I move and my aggression,” said House while detailing what he was told by coaches on the West Virginia staff when he received an offer on May 11.

Who is Kahlil House the Player?

For some background on Kahlil House as a player, he’s a key guard at Houston County High School. He was part of a high-powered offense that threw the ball over 400 times, meaning he had to excel in pass protection. Under new offensive coordinator Chad Scott, West Virginia is going back to its roots and morphing into a run-first team.

That then does bring up the question about if WVU is a fit for House the player, even if it is for House the young man?

247Sports rates House as the 774th-ranked recruit in the class, 49th-ranked interior offensive lineman and 88th-ranked recruit from Georgia. On3 rates him as the 740th-ranked recruit in the class, 54th-ranked interior offensive lineman and 87th-ranked recruit from Georgia.

Offensive lineman are often unsung heroes of a team, and the Mountaineers have two who fit that description right now in Zach Frazier and Doug Nester. And they fit WVU very well. Maybe House will take over upon their departures as part of the future of the offensive line and enjoy the wonder of West Virginia for years to come.

House isn’t the first player to tells us about West Virginia possible being the right fit. Click here to read our interview with class of 2024 Khalil Wilkins.
