WVU Football Recruiting

WVU Football Makes Top 7 for 2025 3-Star WR in Neighboring State



WVU Football WR recruit Michael Scott

Continuing the WVU football program’s recruiting success in a neighboring state, a wide receiver prospect out of Pennsylvania has West Virginia as one of his top 7 schools.

Michael Scott — a 5-foot-9, 160-pound three-star wide receiver from Dallastown, Pa. — narrowed down a list of 20 offers to a group that features Arizona State, JMU, Liberty, Old Dominion, Pitt, Toledo and the Mountaineers.

He cut Akron, Boston College, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Coastal Carolina, UConn, ECU, Howard, Kent State, Maryland, UMass and Temple from contention.

Scott isn’t the biggest wideout, but he’s a lightning-quick playmaker with legitimate track star speed (10.50 100-yard dash at Dallastown), and he showed his versatility as a junior.

Scott did a little bit of everything for Dallastown last season, completing 11-of-18 pass attempts for 170 yards and a touchdown, racking up 40 carries for 307 yards and four touchdowns and hauling in 33 receptions for 493 yards (14.9 yards per reception) and five touchdowns.

He was a two-way star for the Wildcats, too, recording 15 tackles (10 solo), a tackle for loss and four interceptions.

Scott made it out to Pittsburgh most recently for the Panther’s spring game on April 13 and has also stayed in close communication with Pitt for over a year.

Scott hasn’t been ranked by the major recruiting services (247Sports, Rivals and On3), but he does hold a 5.5 Rivals Rating. And as he goes on visits and makes camp appearances, his stock should continue to rise.

It will be important to lock Scott into an official visit this summer and for WVU wide receiver coach Bilal Marshall to continue to build a relationship with Scott.
