WVU Football Recruiting

Mountaineers Schedule Visit with 2023 3-Star RB DJ Oliver



West Virginia knows all too well the difficulty in managing a roster in this era of college football, but the Mountaineers are also well aware they need to always be on the look out for quality players.

This often even means going after quality players, even if they play a position of strength just in case. Just a week after WVU made an offer to running back DJ Oliver, he has announced he has an official visit scheduled. Oliver will be making trip to Morgantown to see the WVU campus and meet coaches.

Despite the running game being a pleasant surprise and one of the bight spots of WVU’s rough 2022 season, adding the 3-star running back could bolster the future of the offense even more. Oliver de-committed from USF just days following his offer from WVU. He originally committed in May and is a Florida native out of Port Saint Joe, Florida, but the Bulls fired Jeff Scott after winning just four games in three years in Tampa.

Oliver lists himself at 230 pounds and exactly six feet tall. He is considered a three-star prospect in the 2023 class. Ranked as the 170th best Florida player by, Oliver is placed at 130 by 247 Sports.

Prior to committing to USF, Oliver was weighing offers from Florida Atlantic, who is also expending a coaching change, Central Michigan, Army, Air Force, Navy, Middle Tennessee and UAB.

Running back Jahiem White out of York, Pennsylvania is viewed as the Mountaineers’ top running back commit.
