Recapping a Wild Recruiting Weekend for West Virginia Football



The recruiting trail for West Virginia football had a wild weekend as they landed six recruits with five of them joining the class of 2023 and the sixth, tight-end Will Dixon, reclassifying for their year’s class of 2022.

Five of the six players who committed are rated as a three-star recruit on at least one of the major outlets with legacy and local athlete Noah Braham being the lone man left.

He wasn’t the lone legacy recruit though as four of the weekend’s commitments are legacies, or have a family connection to the current West Virginia team.

Here is a full list of those that committed this weekend as well as links to our articles and a brief description of each player.

Ben Cutter

The 2023 linebacker was the first of four commitments on Saturday. Cutter is only being rated by Rivals, who has him as a three-star recruit and the No. 36 prospect in North Carolina.

Corey McIntyre Jr.

McIntyre is the son of Corey Sr., who played from 1998-2001 for West Virginia. Corey Sr. then spent several years in the NFL as a fullback for the Philadelphia Eagles (practice squad 2002-03), Cleveland Browns (2004-05), New Orleans Saints (2006), Atlanta Falcons (2006-07) and Buffalo Bills (2008-12).

Jordan Jackson

The three-star athlete Jackson is the twin brother of Josiah Jackson who committed to the program back in March. WV Sports Now spoke to Josiah earlier this month when he told us exclusively that he was officially closing his recruitment.

Noah Braham

Another legacy recruit, Noah Braham is the son of former walk-on turned All-American West Virginia offensive lineman Rich Braham. Noah, perhaps similar to his father, didn’t have much interest leaving high school as he isn’t rated on any of the four major recruiting outlets.

Tory Johnson Jr.

Once again, another legacy recruit as he is the son of Tory Johnson Sr. who played tight-end for West Virginia from 2000-03. Junior is a three-star wide receiver from Virginia.

Will Dixon

Dixon is the lone recruit who reclassified to the class of 2022 and actually enrolled this week. He is a three-star tight-end and brings their 2022 recruiting class to a No. 35 ranking on 247Sports with a No. 42 overall ranking when including transfers.
