List of Recruits for West Virginia-Virginia Tech Game



Coming into the latest installment of the Black Diamond Trophy rivalry between West Virginia and No. 15 Virginia Tech, it’s perhaps the biggest game in WVU head coach Neal Brown’s tenure.

Coming off a 1-1 start to the 2021-22 season, a loss to Virginia Tech — WVU entering as a three-point favorite over the Hokies at Milan Puskar Stadium — would likely spell the start of a two game losing streak for the Mountaineers and cast doubt upon WVU’s climb to relevance.

The 2022 recruit class for Brown, ranked 23rd by 247Sports as of this moment, is one of the best in recent memory for WVU, providing a pipeline of talented high school recruits that could impact the roster across all levels in the seasons to come.

A number of talented recruits will be in attendance for the WVU-VT game on Saturday, including those listed below.
