Deshon Stoudemire Picks West Virginia

Receiver Selects WVU Over Auburn, Ohio State

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – West Virginia added wideout Deshon Stoudemire to its 2019 class on Friday, marking the fifth commitment for the Mountaineers.

The 6-foot-1, 175-pound prospect also held offers from Ohio State, Auburn, Nebraska, South Carolina, Louisville and Michigan State and Iowa State, among others. Out of Stephenson High in Stone Mountain, Ga., Stoudemire is on campus this weekend, and decided to commit. It’s another get for corners coach Doug Belk, who is has ties to the Georgia area is mining the prospect-rich area.

Stoudemire shows good hands and the ability to track the ball. Though he won’t run away from anybody – think the Gary Jennings-type wideout – he has solid body control and keeps his feet underneath him to make quick cuts for additional yardage. He also operates effectively over the middle, and returned punts for Stephenson last season.

Stoudemire will attend WVU’s practice this afternoon, and is the first offensive commit for WVU in the 2019 class.
