WVU Football Recruiting
West Virginia Football Joins Mix for 2024 3-Star CB Target Daniel James
West Virginia’s emphasis on building a solid secondary has been evident throughout the offseason and that’s only continuing into recruiting of future classes.
The Mountaineers have joined the mix for Daniel James, a highly coveted cornerback prospect from Powder Springs, Georgia. James posted about receiving an offer from WVU, but even in that post, it was clear head coach Neal Brown and his staff will have plenty of competition in their attempt to land this three-star player. James claims WVU’s offer was the 20th sent his way already and he still has another year of high school left to go as he will be graduating in 2024.

Listed at 5’11” and 175 pounds, although some outlets like 247 Sports and On3.com have him skinnier at 165, James is ranked as the number 53 high school cornerback in the country and the 56th best overall player in Georgia, according to On3.com.
He could provide athleticism and speed to a West Virginia secondary that’s currently lacking a star and proven talent. Georgia Tech and North Carolina State are believed to be the frontrunners for James’ services, but he has offers from Appalachian State, Georgia Southern, Duke, Kansas State, Pitt, Tennessee, UAB and Wake Forest, who also tossed their name into contention recently, to consider.
