With the recent departures of safeties Kenny Robinson, Derrek Pitts Jr. and E.J. Brown, West Virginia head football coach Neal Brown needed to address the lack of depth at the position immediately.
Today, he accomplished that goal by adding JUCO transfer Noah Guzman of Cerritos College in California. It was a rather quick process as Guzman was offered earlier in the week and made his visit to Morgantown today. Shortly after his visit concluded, he took to Twitter to announce his decision.
Guzman told DubVNation earlier in the week that the offer was “surreal” and that it “was a dream come true to have a school like WVU offer.”
He also said that the two things that stood out to him while on his visit were “the coaches and the family atmosphere”. Guzman also added, “They are all down to earth guys and seem like they really care about their players, especially coach Koenning. I feel really comfortable around all of them and I know they will take care of me.”
After his true freshman season at Cerritos, he was named a first team All-California safety. He racked up 74 tackles, 2 interceptions and one forced fumble.
Guzman will have four years of eligibility including a redshirt, if necessary.
