The main goal of most programs on National Signing Day is to make sure committed players sign. WVU was able to accomplish that, but a bonus is when you can even add to those players by stealing away a top prospect another school was banking on. And West Virginia was able to accomplish that this year as well.

After having already changed his mind once over the summer when he pulled away from Pitt, Farmer entered the day committed to fellow Big 12 foe UCF. And the Florida native and Melbourne Catholic product actually turned West Virginia down just a few months before to decide to stay closer to home at that time. So what changed and eventually made him singing “Take Me Home, Country Roads” on his way up north?
