West Virginia’s 2022 recruiting class has made some headway this cycle, with the Mountaineers bringing in one of the most promising classes in recent memory.
If 2022 four-star linebacker Wesley Bissainthe from Miami Central in Miami, Florida commits to WVU, a new top-ranked recruit would be added to WVU head coach Neal Brown’s impressive class of high school talent.
Bissainthe (6-foot-1, 200 pounds) has received offers from over 25 schools, but he narrowed down his Top 5 Wednesday night, and WVU made the cut. Miami, Florida State, Florida, Penn State and WVU are the five finalists for his commitment.

Rivals’ Ryan Wright wrote about Bissainthe, getting his thoughts on WVU:
“Coach (Travis) Trickett and Coach (Jeff) Koonz. I like what they do with their defense and how they are playing sideline to sideline.”
Bissainthe has visited all five schools in his Top 5, and he visited West Virginia on June 4 with a few big southern state recruits that Brown has managed to nab this cycle like four-star cornerback Jacolby Spells and three-star safety Mumu Bin-Wahad.
247Sports rates Bissainthe as the 172nd-ranked recruit in the nation, coming in as the 20th-ranked linebacker and the 20th-ranked recruit from Florida. Rivals rates him as the 23rd-ranked outside linebacker and the 42nd-ranked recruit from Florida.
WVU will face an uphill battle in landing Bissainthe, with both 247Sports and Rivals currently projecting him to commit to Miami. His commitment date will come later this year.
