WVU Football Recruiting

WVU Among Finalists for 2021 Four-Star RB, Three-Star LB

West Virginia University’s recruiting push picked up some more steam to start the weekend as the Mountaineers were listed among the programs still being considered by two notable recruits.

On Friday, running back Justin Johnson — a 247Sports four-star prospect listed at 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds — tweeted a graphic with his top six schools and WVU made the cut. Johnson, a standout at Edwardsville High in Illinois, narrowed his list to West Virginia, Michigan State, Washington State, Louisville, Minnesota and California.

Johnson, who visited Morgantown in January, also has offers from Illinois, Indiana, Purdue and Temple among others.

Then on Saturday another recruit listed WVU among his finalists when Virginia Beach three-star linebacker Isi Etute posted a graphic with the Mountaineers, Virginia Tech and North Carolina State as his final three. Etute — who also has Power 5 offers from Vanderbilt, Wisconsin and Wake Forest as well as Temple, Appalachian State and Marshall among others — is listed at 6-3 and 205 pounds.
