West Virginia has announced the signing of Ohio linebacker Josh Chandler ( Canton, OH). Chandler immediately reminds me of David Long’s high school reel, he shoots the gap quick, lowers his shoulder, and is a picture perfect tackler. Chandler, like Long, is undersized at 5’10” 215 pounds, but you wouldn’t know that by watching how he plays. Size does not effect Chandler and mark my word he will be the “hidden gem” of this class when it is all said and done. Ohio State who did not offer Chandler, missed one in their own backyard here.
Chandler has already graduated from high school and plans on enrolling at West Virginia in January after Christmas break.
