West Virginia Adds Another Commit From Peach State

West Virginia Adds Another Commit From Peach State


The Mountaineer football team picked up a verbal commitment Sunday from cornerback Nicktroy Fortune.

A 6-foot, 170-pound defensive back from Central Gwinnett County High School, which is Lawrenceville, Ga., just northeast of Atlanta.

Fortune had offers from a dozen Power 5 schools, including Georgia Tech, Wisconsin, Louisville, Virginia, Iowa State, Kansas State, Kentucky and North Carolina, but the recruitment by WVU defensive back coach Doug Belk ultimately swayed Fortune to the Mountaineers.

Rated a three-star prospect by most scouting services, Fortune is a two-way player, though most colleges view him as a cornerback at the next level.

His Black Knights were 5-5 in 2017. Central’s quarterback last season, Jarren Williams, was one of the top prep QBs in country. Williams threw for 3,015 yards in 2017 and ultimately signed with the University of Miami.

Fortune had 39 tackles and two interceptions as a junior.

He is the eighth verbal commitment West Virginia has picked up for the class of 2019, though the first defensive back in this group. Of the eight, three are from the state of Georgia, as receivers Deshon Stoudemire and Winston Wright also are native of the Peach State.

    Good size for a CB.

    I agree that if Fortune truly is 6-foot, he’s got good size for a corner. Of course, height, weight and 40 times are so often exaggerated in recruiting, we in terms of media and fans don’t always know what to believe.

    Even if he’s 2″ shorter, that’s still an OK size. It’s not like he’s being listed at 5’9″ and is really 5’7″.
    40 time isn’t as relevant as how fast he can run backwards 😉

    Good point, and I like the way he breaks on the ball. More of that in our Verbal View analysis.
