Matthews, who chose the Mountaineers over other offers from Central Florida, Western Kentucky, Troy and Charlotte, becomes their 14 commitment in 2020 and their third defensive back.

The 3-star cornerback was recruited to West Virginia by cornerbacks coach Jahmile Addae, who formally offered him a scholarship last month. This season, Matthews was named the MACJC Defensive Back MVP after finishing the season with 49 tackles and 5 interceptions.

Matthews will graduate in December and have two years of eligibility remaining at West Virginia.
