Wesolak (6-foot-5, 225 pounds) is rated as a three-star prospect in the 2022 recruiting class by 247Sports. He plays defensive end and outside linebacker ar Boonville High School in Boonville, Missouri.
Wesolak told WVSN that WVU defensive recruiting coordinator Trey Neyer called and offered him on Sunday. He said that was the first time he had talked to anyone from WVU, but has since also texted with co-defensive coordinator Jordan Lesley.
Wesolak said WVU loved his film and energy and that he thinks he will be a pure pass rusher in college.
“I think I’ll be a edge rusher in whatever scheme I’ll play in,” Wesolak said. “I’ll always have the ability to attack the QB in any defense.”
Since the beginning of October, Wesolak has picked up offers from Kansas State, Louisville, Michigan State, Nebraska, Iowa, WVU and Arkansas. He also has offers from Boston College, Iowa State, Kansas, Tennessee, Akron and Ball State.
Wesolak said the number one thing he is looking for in a school is a place that feels like home. That feeling will come from the relationships he makes with others.
