The West Virginia coaching staff had a busy day on the recruiting trail Wednesday, Dec. 4.

Head coach Neal Brown visited 2020 quarterback commit Garrett Greene in Tallahassee, Florida.

Throughout the day WVU made offers to 16 prospects, 12 from the sunshine state.


West Virginia’s hardest-hit spots Wednesday were Hollywood, Rockledge and Fort Lauderdale, all in Florida. WVU offered Bralon Brown, Kenyatta Jackson Jr. and Thaddius Franklin from Hollywood, De’quan Davis, Rahiem Sanders, Rian Black and Zachary Lovett from Rockledge and Earl Little Jr. and Dallas Turner from Fort Lauderdale.

There were two 2020 recruits offered Wednesday, JUCO cornerback Lakevias Daniel and defensive end Kershawn Fisher. West Virginia already has 14 commits in its 2020 class.

There are two 2020 cornerbacks committed to WVU, junior college transfer Jackie Williams and England native Jairo Faverus. There is one defensive end in the class, Taurus Simmons from Savannah, Georgia.

There were 10 juniors given offers, headlining the group are four-star prospects Dallas Turner, Bralon Brown and James BlackStrain.

Turner is a defensive end from Fort Lauderdale. Brown and BlackStrain are wide receivers. Brown is from Hollywood, Florida and BlackStrain is from Cocoa, Florida.

There were five total receivers offers on the day. Other than Brown and BlackStrain, there was Rahiem Sanders in the 2021 class, Rian Black in the 2022 class and De’quan Davis in the 2023 class. WVU has two receivers committed in the 2020 class, Reese Smith and Devell Washington.

There were two 2021 quarterbacks offered Wednesday, Timmy McClain from Sanford, Florida and Will Crowder from Gardenale, Alabama. Greene is the only quarterback committed in WVU’s 2020 class.

Still trying to bolster its offensive line, WVU offered 2021 linemen Noah Josey from Slidell, Louisiana and Michael McLaughlin from Sanford, Florida. There are two linemen committed in the 2020 class, Chris Mayo and Zach Frazier.

National signing day, when the 2020 recruits will sign their letters of intent, is on Dec. 18.
