Las Vegas isn’t exactly a hotbed recruiting area for West Virginia, but the WVU football coaching staff couldn’t resist sending an offer to this premiere prospect. Class of 2026 linebacker Kenneth Goodwin III revealed his West Virginia offer on Monday afternoon.

Goodwin, who is listed at 6-foot-2 and 212 pounds, is a Desert Pines High School product out of Las Vegas, Nev.

Ranked as no worse than No. 5 in his class when it comes to Nevada, ESPN and Rivals both have Goodwin with four stars while On3 Sports and 247 Sports have him with three. ESPN even has Goodwin as their No. 34 player.

Goodwin has offers from many major programs, most notably Alabama, Arizona State, Arkansas, Auburn, Georgia, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Oregon, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, UCLA, Washington and West Virginia. He also has offers from schools like Oregon State, SMU, Syracuse and UNLV.

On3 Sports projects Alabama and Georgia to eventually land Goodwin’s commitment, although he could believe playing elsewhere would like give him a better chance at earning playing time.

Oregon and Michigan were Goodwin’s two most recent offers prior to this one from WVU.
