Feb. 5 is the second signing day period for the 2020 recruiting class. WVU is expected to sign a few recruits today. WVSN will update this story as the signings are verified.

Update 3:13 p.m.

**WVU has signed three-star pass rusher Eddie Watkins from Evergreen, Alabama. Watkins (6-foot-4, 240 lbs.) is rated as the 39th best prospect in Alabama by Rivals and the 42nd best by 247Sports. 247 also has him as the 57th rated weakside defensive end in the 2020 class. He had power five offers from Arizona, Missouri, Georgia Tech, Purdue, Kentucky and Ole Miss. He had previously committed to Georgia Tech.

Update 2:57 p.m.

**Local product Preston Fox will walk-on at West Virginia. Fox (6-foot, 185 lbs.) played wide receiver and defensive back at Morgantown High School. Fox announced his intention to sign with WVU on Jan. 22. Fox is unranked by Rivals.

Update 2:48 p.m.

**West Virginia has added in-state player Jackson Oxley. Oxley (6-foot-3, 250 lbs.) is an offensive lineman who played at Cabell Midland High School. He will be a preferred walk-on, having received his PWO offer on Feb. 3.

Update 2:06 p.m.

**Junior college quarterback Matt Cavallaro has signed with West Virginia. Cavallaro is a walk-on who has enrolled early at WVU. Cavallaro announced his intention to join the Mountaineers on Dec. 16. Cavallaro (6-foot-1, 195 lbs.) passed for 1,754 yards and 23 touchdowns with a 51.1% completion percentage starting for the Falcons this season. Cavallaro threw only seven interceptions and scored six more touchdowns on the ground. Cavallaro and Lackawanna played in the JUCO National Championship game against Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College (MGCCC) and West Virginia recruit Jackie Mathews. Matthews intercepted Cavallaro on the final play of the game to seal the win for MGCCC.

Update 11:18 a.m.

**Outside linebackers coach Al Pogue teased a recruit signing on Twitter this morning. There was not a defensive player expected to sign with WVU today so this could be a surprise signing for the Mountaineers.
