Keelan Flowe felt there was no reason to wait any longer and decided to fully commit to the WVU football program. Flowe announced his intention to become a Mountaineer publicly on Tuesday, but informed WV Sports Now soon after his recent official visit.

When asked why he picked West Virginia, the class of 2024 safety recruit said “why not (almost) heaven?” and “no one can do it like WVU” as his simple and perfect answer. He also started off his tweet to publicize the news by saying “hey Siri, play Take Me Home, Country Roads” as well.

“Phenomenal” was the word Flowe used while describing his experience visiting WVU just days before committing.

The Charlotte, North Carolin native returned to Morgantown for yet another visit as his recruitment intensified. Flowe (5-foot-11, 170 pounds) and the Mountaineers have been in constant communication, especially since he received an official offer in early March.

2024 Safety Recruit Keelan Flowe Refers to Recent WVU Experience as ‘Phenomenal’

Keelan Flowe Loves Everything About WVU

“Love the coaching staff, love the people in Morgantown and the team there. The bond is just different. It’s just like a brotherhood. They all welcome each other!,” Flowe said with excitement about his time with the current WVU coaches and players.

As far as what took place while Flowe was in town, the safety recruit simply said “everything” in terms of touring the facility and even hanging out at head coach Neal Brown’s house.

Flowe said assistant coach Dontae Wright is the coach he’s been speaking with the most on the West Virginia staff. Wright’s main role is to work with the safeties. “He just told me that he likes the type of player I am and how I can play corner sand safety, and how I can make plays, like making tackles in coverage,” said Flowe about what Coach Wright said to him about his film.

Evaluating Keelan Flowe the Player

Flowe even offered his own evaluation of his game. “I’m a great DB that can play anywhere on the backend and I’m very vocal. I like to run the defense and get people where they need to be,” he explained.

With Flowe giving the WVU football program its first secondary player committed in the 2024 class, WVU now has eight players locked in.
