WVU Football Recruiting

West Virginia Makes Top 5 for Talented 2023 Florida 4-Star WR William Fowles

Published

West Virginia hasn’t landed a recruit from the class of 2023 yet, but if a talented wide receiver in the class decides to make a cross-country trip to Morgantown, WVU head coach Neal Brown would be off to an excellent start.

2023 four-star wide receiver William Fowles narrowed down his already extensive list of offers featuring 11 teams from across the Southeast (and WVU, as the lone outlier) and decided to narrow his Top 5 to Florida, Florida State, Ole Miss, Texas A&M and WVU.

Fowles (6-foot-3, 190 pounds) is a big-bodied target with enough speed to create mismatches across the field for Dade Christian School in Hialeah, Florida. A track star at Dade Christian, he also caught 31 passes for 692 yards and eight touchdowns as a junior.

With visits to Miami and Florida State over the summer, it’s perhaps surprising that Fowles didn’t include Miami (his backyard school) in his Top 5, but it’s clear his recruiting process is still very, very open.

Fowles picked up his WVU offer back in early April, and while he hasn’t made any visits to Morgantown yet, the Mountaineer staff has clearly made enough of an impact to influence a spot among his potential finalists.

247Sports rates Fowles as the 273rd-ranked recruit in the class, checking in as the 36th-ranked wide receiver and the 56th-ranked recruit from Florida. Rivals is even higher on Fowles, rating him as the 196th-ranked recruit in the class, 31st-ranked receiver and 41st-ranked recruit from Florida.

Neither 247Sports nor Rivals has projected a landing spot for Fowles yet, and with visits to contending and now non-contending schools, Fowles’ process is still very much open among his five contenders.
