Upcoming OV Last Chance for WVU Football to Impress 4-Star Ohio LB



WVU Football LB recruit Grant Beerman

A top recruit who could fill a constant position of need will be on his way to check out the WVU football program soon. Class of 2025 linebacker Grant Beerman has an official visit booked with the Mountaineers for this weekend.

Beerman, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound prospect out of Lake West High School in West Chester, Ohio, posted about his upcoming trip to Morgantown on X (Twitter) on Wednesday. Beerman’s official visit will be WVU’s last chance to impress someone they initially offered in early December soon after he attended the final home game of the 2023 season.

Despite being mostly classified as a three-star, Beerman has been awarded four stars by Rivals.

WV Sports Now talked with the Beerman about his recruitment back in January.

“It was great. This was my first visit to campus outside of a game day visit so it was good to see the facilities and get a walk through of what the program has to offer,” said Beerman after experiencing a WVU game day atmosphere.

A recruiting visit is always about more than just checking out the facilities, it’s also about getting to know the coaches. Beerman detailed his talks with several coaches and how his relationship with the Mountaineer staff has grown.

“I was able to spend a lot of time with the coaches, including a great conversation with Coach (Neal) Brown and some really good football talk with Coach (Jordan) Lesley and Coach (Jeff) Koonz. I was impressed with the staff and all that they have going on for the players,” explained Beerman.

He even appreciated their honest approach. Beerman said the coaches went into what they liked about his game and why they felt he’s a perfect fit for the WVU defense.

“They like my versatility and my ability to quickly read the plays and react. My length at 6-foot-4 is a plus, but they highlighted my ability to bend and get low, which will allow me to really use my length at the ILB position,” Beerman said. He then continued. “They believe I fit in well with the defense, which allows the line backers to make decisions and play fast to make plays.”

Beerman just completed an official visit with Michigan State and has offers from an abundance of major programs like Cincinnati, Duke, Kentucky, Indiana, Minnesota, Pitt, Purdue, Virginia and Wake Forest among many others.
