The Mountaineer football team saw the final 15 scholarship members of its class of 2020 enroll at West Virginia University this week.
Neal Brown’s program had five class of 2020 signees enroll this past January – defensive back Jairo Faverus, quarterback Garrett Greene, defensive back Jackie Matthews, defensive lineman Quay Mays and wide receiver Reese Smith – and now they have been joined by the 15 others who also signed National Letters of Intent with WVU, either in December or February.
The University is not holding any in-person classes this summer, so the academic work by these newcomers, and all WVU students for that matter, will take place only online.
The Mountaineer football players, including the newcomers, can start voluntary workouts on Monday, June 15, but they have to be cleared in COVID-19 testing before any of them can begin their strength and conditioning work.
The 15 latest enrollees include wide receiver Sam Brown, bandit Lanell Carr, tight end Charles Finley, offensive lineman Zach Frazier, defensive end Sean Martin, offensive lineman Chris Mayo, defensive lineman Akheem Mesidor, defensive back Daryl Porter, bandit Taurus Simmons, offensive lineman Tairiq Stewart, cornerback David Vincent-Okloli, wide receiver Devell Washington, offensive lineman Jordan White, running back A’Varius Sparrow and bandit Eddie Watkins.
The three transfers who have announced via various social media platforms that they are coming to West Virginia – defensive back Scott Young from Arizona, defensive lineman Bryce Brand from Maryland and punter/placekicker Tyler Sumpter from Troy – reportedly are not part of this latest batch of WVU enrollees, as those three are each still working their way through the University’s entrance process.
