2025 3-Star LB Left Visit Impressed with WVU Football Program

The WVU football staff strives to leave a lasting impact on every recruit they welcome in for a visit. And after talking with three-star linebacker Grant Beerman following his time in Morgantown on Sunday, it’s clear that goal was accomplished.

WV Sports Now spoke with the Lakota West High School prospect from West Chester, Ohio about how this visit was different from when he attended a game and what the coaches said to him about his potential.

“It was great. This was my first visit to campus outside of a game day visit so it was good to see the facilities and get a walk through of what the program has to offer,” said Beerman.

A recruiting visit is always about more than just checking out the facilities, it’s also about getting to know the coaches. Beerman detailed his talks with several coaches and how his relationship with the Mountaineer staff has grown.

“I was able to spend a lot of time with the coaches, including a great conversation with Coach (Neal) Brown and some really good football talk with Coach (Jordan) Lesley and Coach (Jeff) Koonz. I was impressed with the staff and all that they have going on for the players,” explained Beerman.

He even appreciated their honest approach. Beerman said the coaches went into what they liked about his game and why they felt he’s a perfect fit for the WVU defense.

“They like my versatility and my ability to quickly read the plays and react. My length at 6-foot-4 is a plus, but they highlighted my ability to bend and get low, which will allow me to really use my length at the ILB position,” Beerman said. He then continued. “They believe I fit in well with the defense, which allows the line backers to make decisions and play fast to make plays.”

Before parting ways and sending the three-star recruit off on visits with other schools, Beerman said he was told to just keep up what he’s doing and that they will be in touch. Beerman took those words as music to his ears.

Beerman also made a stop in Virginia after WVU to close the weekend and has Toledo on deck. He will then be at Wake Forest, Duke, Cincinnati and Michigan State in the coming weeks.
