WVU Football Recruiting

3-Star Michigan Athlete Christion Stokes Commits to WVU



After missing out on 3-star defensive end Q’yaeir Price this afternoon, West Virginia made sure to lock up the 13th member of its 2022 recruiting class in 3-star athlete Christion Stokes.

Stokes (6-foot-1, 195 pounds) from Harper Woods High School in Harper Woods, Michigan chose WVU over Iowa and Michigan State, becoming the newest member of a soaring recruiting class for the Mountaineers.

While both 247Sports and Rivals projected Stokes to land with WVU, it wasn’t a done deal until his official tweet Saturday evening. The 494th-ranked recruit in the cycle, Stokes provides WVU another big-time athlete with the potential to play on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball.

247Sports rated Stokes as the 43rd-ranked athlete and 14th-ranked recruit from Michigan while Rivals rated him as the 18th-ranked athlete and 12th-ranked recruit from Michigan.

Stokes’s visit on June 4 gave WVU the early lead, his connection with fellow Detroit high schooler and WVU target 4-star Jaden Mangham and interaction with WVU commits showing the bonds he made while in Morgantown.

With Stokes’s commitment, WVU has now secured 13 recruits for the 2022 class. 4-star quarterback Nicco Marchiol headlines the class made up of 4-star running back Justin Williams, 3-star wide receiver Jarel Williams, 3-star tight end Corbin Page, offensive linemen Maurice Hamilton, Charlie Katarincic and Sullivan Weidman on offense. Defensively, WVU has added 3-star edge rushers Zion Young and Aric Burton, 4-star cornerback Jacolby Spells and 3-star cornerbacks Tyrin Woodby and Mumu Bin-Wahad. And now Stokes joins them.
