WVU Football Recruiting

West Virginia Lands 2020 RB A’Varius Sparrow



After the early signing period came and went without a running back signing for the Mountaineers in the class of 2020, WVU head coach Neal Brown emphasized the importance of adding to the team’s run game.

On Friday, Brown got his guy.

A’Varius Sparrow, a three-star running back prospect from Orlando, Florida, announced Friday that he would be making Morgantown his new home.

The 5-foot-10, 185 pound Sparrow helps to fill the void left by Lamy Constant, a four-star running back who decommitted from WVU on Dec. 8.

Sparrow rushed for over 2000 yards and had a 9.3 YPC his senior season for Jones HS, the 11th ranked school in Florida.

When he comes on campus, Sparrow will join a running back room featuring fellow scholarship backs Leddie Brown (junior), Alec Sinkfield (redshirt junior) and Tony Mathis (redshirt freshman).

Including West Virginia, Sparrow had eight total offers. Other schools include Florida Atlantic, Rutgers, UCF and USF.
