WVU Football Recruiting

Jacksonville State Transfer OL Returns Home, Commits to WVU Football



A West Virginia native is coming home. Jacksonville State offensive line transfer Xavier Bausley committed to the WVU football program on Sunday.

Bausley initially informed content creator Mountaineer Paul about his decision and gave him permission to break the news. He then posted a video.

Bausley ended up picking West Virginia over schools like Kentucky and Pitt. He visited Morgantown recently within the transfer window.

Bausley, listed at 6-foot-5 and 315 pounds, started 12 games for the Gamecocks this past season. He played over 900 snaps and earned All-Conference USA Freshman honors.

He played high school football at South Charleston High School. Bausley’s versatility fits in well with what WVU offensive line coach Matt Moore wants in his linemen.

Being at WVU will allow Bausley to learn from an experienced group of starters, be back in his home state and play in a major conference. He has three years left of eligibility.
