West Virginia’s run of bad luck on the recruiting trail continued Saturday with 2022 3-star defensive end Q’yaeir Price committing to Syracuse.
Price (6-foot-4, 250 pounds) announced his commitment to Syracuse with a post on Twitter Saturday afternoon, thanking those who allowed him to reach this point.
After a long process, I want to Thank all my family and friends for being here with me. I also wanna thank my coaches and trainers for getting me to where I am now. With that being said I’ll be committing to Syracuse University. #Commit2Cuse🍊 @CoachCamp01 @CoachNJ_Monroe pic.twitter.com/ykJlwx3z3z

The decision doesn’t come as a huge surprise, with both 247Sports and Rivals projecting Price to sign with Syracuse. Price, the 696th-ranked recruit in the cycle, is one of the better defensive recruits from New Jersey, so his loss is disappointing for the Mountaineers. Especially with WVU earning his last visit on the trail.
However, despite the loss of Price, WVU has another chance to land a premier talent in the 2022 cycle.
Fellow 3-star recruit Christion Stokes commits today at 5:30 PM via Twitter, and both 247Sports and Rivals project him to WVU.
