Being able to land top recruits can trickle down to others and help build up a program. That’s the case for West Virginia with head coach Neal Brown thanks to acquiring commitments from elite high school talent like Rodney Gallagher and Jahiem White.
Gallagher has already detailed why he decided on WVU, but Jahiem reiterated his thought process too in a reply to a tweet from WVSN’s Mike Asti.
In the tweet, White made it known the coaches are his main reason for picking WVU.
“The coaches at WVU are the reason I committed! They are humble and genuine🔵🟡⛰️!!,” White replied to a tweet about the team still playing hard for Neal Brown.

White caught the attention of WVU fans recently after his monster game last Saturday afternoon.
White ran for 6 scores and totaled 7 touchdowns on the day. His 417 yards came on 28 carries for an average of 15 yards per carry, but he also threw a 47-yard pass and even ran back an interception for a score while playing defense too. The 5’9 and 187 pound WVU commit showed how much of an athlete he really is more in this game than any other.
A few months ago, White detailed the family atmosphere vibe Neal Brown is creating at WVU as what helped sell him on moving to Morgantown to continue his football career. He also made it clear he has goals to reach the NFL.
No matter your opinions on Brown, it’s a big plus to have top commit speaking so glowingly of the coaching staff and atmosphere around the program.
