WVU Football CB recruit Aydan West

West Virginia will soon find out if their hard work in pursuing Aydan West will pay off. West, one of the top recruits being targeted by WVU, will announce his commitment decision on June 25.

After initially planning to commit on June 10, West set a new date for his announcement on Sunday. This came after he wrapped up an official visit with another Big 12 contender. Despite his trip to Cincinnati, West confirmed his serious interest in West Virginia.

West, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound 2025 prospect out of Quince Orchard High School in Gaithersburg, Md., completed an official visit with WVU earlier in the month.

He then followed his time in Morgantown by talking to WV Sports Now about his recruitment and what he likes about West Virginia.

West started the conversation praising West Virginia, both as a place and as a program. “WVU is a great place. The coaches and players showed a lot of love.,” he said.

He also detailed what he heard from the coaching staff during his most recent trip to Morgantown.

“They feel I am an all around football player and I can play all positions in the back half, but my main position is corner.”

West’s versatility makes him an attractive piece to play with for any defense.

An official visit allows recruits to really spend time with everyone involved in the program and truly get a glimpse of what life as a Mountaineer would be like. For West, that experience supports what the current players have been saying about the new and improved culture of the WVU program.

“TJ Crandall was my tour guide. Got to spend time time with the players and it was a good vibe. The DBs didn’t just hang with DBs, the entire team vibed together.”

West is considered a three-star by several major national recruiting outlets, but soaring up the charts as he continues to gain more exposure. Both Rivals and On3 Sports rank West as one of their top 20 players in Maryland.

The West Virginia coaches are in love with his athleticism and know the Maryland product has plenty of options, most notably from other schools within the same region. West narrowed down his list to Cincinnati, Duke, Penn State, Virginia and Wake Forest in addition to WVU on April 28.

West even describes himself as a player who can fit any role.

“I am versatile with being able to play multiple positions . I am a DB that doesn’t mind coming down making the big hit but my cover skills are just as good.”

West Virginia and the other programs on West’s current list beat out the likes of Boston College, Maryland, Pitt and Virginia Tech.

One way or another, WVU will know where they stand with West very soon.
