Slot receiver Justin Menard recently received an offer from West Virginia cornerback’s coach Doug Belk. “I was shocked when I got it because I figured a power 5 school wouldn’t offer someone like me.” Said Menard.
Justin has received offers from other schools besides the Mountaineers. He also holds offers from Temple, UNC Charlotte, UCF, and Rutgers.
The 6’0” 180-lb receiver has a lot of speed, clocking in at 4.34 in the 40-yard dash. You can tell with the way he runs on the field that he runs track. Justin competes in the long jump, 100m, 200m and the 4×100 for Eagles Landing Christian Academy High School, out of McDonough, Georgia.
Menard is the fastest player on the field. He uses is speed to run north and south and no one is catching him from behind. He’s not all speed though. Justin will lower is shoulder for the extra yards, can break tackles and not afraid to do the dirty work, blocking for his teammates.
Justin’s quickness is what get’s him open in the passing game and can find the open spot in the secondary when the quarterback scrambles, but says he wants to improve his route running.
Menard is familiar with West Virginia and being that he is a slot receiver, one former Mountaineer sticks out, “I used to watch them when Tavon Austin played, so I know what they are like.”
“I’ll fit in perfectly for West Virginia” says Menard, “I already run the jet sweep and run the quick screens.”
Justin doesn’t have a planned visit to Morgantown, but he does want to make the trip to the Mountain state in the future.
