Happy Thanksgiving! Before we get to WVU hoops in the Crossover Classic semifinals this afternoon let’s take a peek at football recruiting where the Mountaineers have been busy with preferred walk-on offers for several in-state stars. On Wednesday, WVSN spoke with Musselman standout Blake Hartman — a Lehigh commit — about his recent preferred walk-on offer from WVU and several more are out there, including to Capital defensive lineman Chris Hudson and South Charleston defensive back/receiver Kevin Tinsley.

When asked if he was leaning toward accepting the Mountaineers’ walk-on offer, Hudson told WVSN, “Most definitely. Would love to be able to rep WVU.” The Capital standout owns several Division 2 offers from Concord, Glenville State, West Virginia State and Lawrence Tech. Tinsley, who along with his South Charleston teammates are scheduled to take on Hartman and the Applemen in this weekend’s Class AAA state semifinals, also recently received a scholarship offer from the Mountain East Conference’s Glenville State.
