The Mountaineers are back on the recruiting trail and have dipped into the state of Georgia once again by offering defensive lineman Tomari Fox (6’3″ 260 lbs) of Collins Hill High School in Suwanee, Georgia. Fox also holds offers from Marshall, Syracuse, Georgia State, Tennessee St, South Alabama, Kent State and East Carolina.
When asked if any schools have made a big impression on him at this point he replied, “Georgia State, Tennessee State and Kent State do, but depending on how things go with West Virginia, they definitely could. I think it is a prestigious program along with their academics.”
Fox has seemed to build a strong bond rather quickly with his lead recruiter, Doug Belk. “Our relationship is fairly new, but we get a long very well. He seems very excited to have me as a recruit and I myself, am excited to be one of his prospects. He believes I could play all three down lineman positions, so it’s really about where I fit best.”
Coach Belk is right, Fox has the ability to play all three positions up front for West Virginia, but I see him making a fit at defensive end more so than I do at the nose spot. His speed, low leverage and jump off the ball make him a great candidate to be a legitimate pass rusher. Fox’s versatility will be one of the biggest things that he brings to the table. Whether he lines up at nose or as a pass rusher he as the ability to make is presence known early no matter where he ends up.
Fox plans on taking an official visit to Morgantown as he and the coaching staff are in the works of locking down a date.
