Poll: Does Recruiting Success Help Your Confidence in Neal Brown?



When the losses have outnumbered the wins for West Virginia under Neal Brown, it’s often hard for any fan to see past the current situation. But more goes into deciding if it’s time to move on from a college football head coach than just his record.

While it’s fair to argue Brown has not done enough in year 4 and the expectations should be greater, any reason for keeping him, beyond just the hefty buyout, falls with his solid recruiting.

To this point, Brown has locked up commitments from top recruits Rodney Gallagher, Jahiem White, Sean Boyle and most recently Traylon Ray among a total approaching 20 players. Many national publications have WVU ranked among the top 30 classes in the country, a good spot for a program like WVU no matter what’s been going on.

This doesn’t even extend to the offers that are being sent to players in the 2024 and 2025 classes almost daily. Brown and his staff are doing work on the recruiting front, even if they may not be around to see it all through and come together on the field at Milan Puskar Stadium.
