WVU’s Neal Brown looking for ‘5 or 6’ More Recruits for 2021 Class



When talking to the media Tuesday afternoon, West Virginia head coach Neal Brown talked about what he plans to do during the team’s off week.

Brown said even a big part of the week, like off weeks in normal seasons, will be spent recruiting. Due to the NCAA’s recruiting dead period, Brown and his staff cannot hit the recruiting trail in person, but will still be doing what they can virtually.

Brown said they are still looking for a few more recruits for the 2021 class.

“We need to finish up the ’21 class,” Brown said. “We borrowed a couple [scholarships] with a couple transfers so we don’t have the full 25…I think five or six open spots.”

Brown said the WVU staff will also be working on the 2022 class this week.

“A lot of virtual visits and things for ’22,” Brown said. “We’ve been really active with a lot of ’22 guys.”

According to 247Sports’s database, WVU has nearly 190 scholarship offers out for the 2022 class already.
