WVU Lands Another 2021 Football Commitment
West Virginia’s football program reached into the future for another commitment, landing a verbal from Saint McLeod, who is a current junior at Imhotep Charter in Philadelphia.
A 6-foot, 190-pound safety, McLeod had offers from over a dozen colleges, including Power 5 schools like Iowa State, Kentucky, Oklahoma State, Pitt and Rutgers.

After visiting WVU this weekend, though, McLeod decided to pull the trigger and committed to the Mountaineers.
As a member of the class of 2021, McLeod will not be able to sign his National Letter of Intent until Dec. 16, 2020.
Imhotep has become a high school powerhouse in Pennsylvania and is producing a great deal of high caliber talent. Under head coach Cyril Woodland, seven current Panther juniors already hold offers from Power 5 programs. West Virginia already has one Imhotep commitment in hand in McLeod, and it also has offers in front of most of the others.
Last season the Panthers finished 8-5, advancing to the second round of Pennsylvania’s Class 4A playoffs before bowing out to Dallas High School, 43-36.
McLeod finished the 2019 season with 64 tackles, five TFLs, two sacks and two interceptions. He also played running back for Imhotep and had 806 rushing yards and eight touchdowns on 132 carries. He caught seven passes as well for an additional 54 yards.
McLeod is the third class of 2021 recruit to commit to WVU, joining tight end Victor Wikstrom of Sweden and wide receiver Andrew Wilson-Lamp of Massillon High School in Canton, Ohio.
