JMU Transfer DB Wesley McCormick Officially Signs With West Virginia



West Virginia football announced on Wednesday afternoon that James Madison transfer Wesley McCormick has officially signed with the program on a grant-in-aid scholarship. McCormick is a defensive back from Germantown, MD.

McCormick committed to West Virginia on May 24.

“Let’s get to work,” McCormick wrote on his Twitter.

McCormick (6-foot, 199 pounds) spent five years at James Madison, appearing in 49 games for the Dukes. The Maryland native only played one game during the 2021 season, but recorded 20 tackles and three interceptions during a shortened 2020 year.

2022 JUCO DB Jaylon Shelton also committed to West Virginia just minutes before McCormick did on May 24. Shelton played his freshman season at Tyler JC, in Texas. Shelton played nine games, recording 33 total tackles and two interceptions. WVU head coach Neal Brown showed his excitement on social media.

McCormick graduated from JMU with a bachelor’s degree sport and recreation management. McCormick will have one year of eligibility remaining.
