West Virginia expects offensive line three-star offensive lineman Nick Krahe to be a big part of the program’s future. The first step to getting him on the field for the Mountaineers will take place tomorrow.
Krahe announced on Twitter Tuesday morning that he will sign his national letter of intent with WVU at 1 pm EST at the Harbor Creek High School Library on the National Early Signing Day. Krahe included a picture of himself in full WVU uniform and with a jacket and hat to represent the his new team.

WVU head coach Neal Brown and offensive line coach Matt Moore visited Krahe two weeks ago to make sure they had their top offensive line recruit locked up. Krahe committed to West Virginia back in August.

Along with WVU, Krahe received other “Power Five” offers from Boston College, Maryland and Pitt. Credit offensive line coach Matt Moore as the lead recruiter for Krahe.
Krahe received his offer from West Virginia in June and made an unofficial visit to Morgantown at the end of July, which played a big factor in this decision. He also was in attendance for the Mountaineers’ 2022 home opener this past season, which ended up being a loss to Kansas.
“The visit to West Virginia was probably the biggest thing that I took out of all of my recruiting,” Krahe tells West Virginia Sports Now. “After I went there, I really had a good feeling about West Virginia. I think the thing that really stood out the most is that they were definitely the best academic place for me. And the family atmosphere there, that really just sold me.”
“During the visit, I was talking with Coach Moore and Coach Brown a lot and they loved me. Honestly, I felt the love from everyone there. All the commits there really wanted me. It was a feeling that you just couldn’t beat,” Krahe said at the time.
