WVU Football Remains in Contention for 2025 4-Star Florida Safety



WVU football fans

The WVU football staff started their week with some positive news when four-star safety recruit Rashad Johnson placed West Virginia as part of his top 10. Johnson cut down his list for the first time on Monday afternoon.

To no surprise, WVU is joined by a group of major programs, including a couple Big 12 foes, on Johnson’s list. Kansas State, Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan State, Ole Miss, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas A&M and UCF complete the schools Johnson is still considering.

West Virginia beat out programs like Alabama, Liberty, Maryland and Miami (FL) among many others to stay in contention for Johnson.

A Bushnell, Fla. native, Johnson is a star at South Sumter High School. Even though he hasn’t yet been rated by every national recruiting outlet, Rivals has already awarded Johnson with four stars and a spot as one of the top 50 players in Florida. 247 Sports has Johnson as a three-star prospect and No. 83 overall in the state.

WVU initially sent Johnson an offer on Jan. 23. Johnson wrapped up a recent visit with Ole Miss earlier in the month and has official visits locked in with both Penn State and UCF.

Soon after releasing his top 10, Johnson announced he will be attending WVU spring practice on Tuesday.

Having success recruiting Johnson speaks to the Florida pipeline West Virginia staff has been building in recent years, most notably wide receivers coach Bilal Marshall, has had in Florida.
