Mountaineers Pick Up Commitment From Georgia Linebacker
West Virginia’s football program picked up its 13th verbal commitment for its class of 2019 when Jared Bartlett, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound linebacker from Collins Hill High School in Suwanee, Ga., gave his pledge to Mountaineers Thursday night.
Bartlett is the fourth player from Georgia to have committed to WVU for this class, joining Central Gwinnett County High cornerback Nicktroy Fortune, Stephenson High wide receiver Deshon Stoudemire and Memorial Day High School receiver Winston Wright. Cornerback La’Darius Henry is also a Georgia native, though he’ll spend his senior season playing at Gibbs High School in St. Petersburg, Fla. Like Fortune, Bartlett lives in Gwinnett County, which is just to the northeast of Atlanta.
Prior to committing to WVU, Bartlett listed offers from nearly a dozen Power 5 schools, including Alabama, Maryland, Minnesota, North Carolina, Purdue, Rutgers, Syracuse and Wake Forest, among others.
