Mountaineers Pick Up Defensive Line Commitment

Brayden Dudley

West Virginia reached down to the state of Georgia for its latest football verbal commitment for the class of 2021, plucking Brayden Dudley from Mill Creek High School in Hoschton, which is about 30 miles northeast of Atlanta.

A 6-foot-3, 255-pound defensive lineman, Dudley played defensive end in Mill Creek’s 4-3 alignment and also tight end on offense. He’s expected to play defensive line in the college ranks.

Dudley had nearly 20 scholarship offers from Division I schools, including Power 5 programs Iowa State and Michigan State, as well as East Carolina, Appalachian State and South Florida.

He ultimately committed to the Mountaineers. His lead recruiter from WVU was the man who will ultimately also coach him, West Virginia defensive line coach Jordan Lesley.

Dudley had five sacks last year in helping the Hawks advance to the quarterfinal round of the Georgia Class AAAAAAA state playoffs. He’s listed as running a 4.8 and bench pressing 315 pounds.

Dudley is WVU’s ninth commitment for the class of 2021, and the third prospect who figures to play defense for the Mountaineers, joining Ohio defensive end Hammond Russell (6-4, 240 lbs.) and Philadelphia safety Saint McLeod (5-11, 195 lbs.).

    Looks like both of the DE commits have bandit type bodies.

    Like the way Brown is putting this class together.  Although we are rated #39 on Scout at this point we have only 9 recruits and one isn’t rated yet.  #30 on Rivals with all 9 rated.

    But put it in perspective.  With 9 commits and a 3.22 rating average we are #21 on Rivals if you go by rating average.  Compare that to Pitt with 14 commits and a #20 overall ranking.  But their rating average is 2.93 for their 14 commits and 52nd on that list.

    A little recruiting tidbit on Dudley: He got his visit in on March 6, right before the moratorium on in-person visits went into effect. After that, he went totally silent on social media before announcing his commitment. The staff must have made a nice impression on him and his family.
