West Virginia Football Welcomes 13 January Enrollees

Zeiqui Lawton

The Mountaineers welcomed 13 new members to their football team this week, all of whom enrolled at West Virginia University for the spring semester, which began this past Monday.

Twelve of the 13 had previously been announced as part of WVU’s class of 2022 signees. The one new name on the list is cornerback Marcis Floyd, who is transferring to the Mountaineers from Murray State. An FCS All-American and three-year starter for the Racers, the 6-foot, 188-pound Floyd had actually committed to West Virginia several weeks ago, but WVU had not put out an official release announcing his addition … until now.

The January enrollees include four transfers from other Division I programs (Floyd, running back Lyn-J Dixon from Clemson, defensive back Zeiqui Lawton from Cincinnati and tight end Brian Polendey from Colorado State), two junior college transfers (linebacker Lee Kpogba and safety Hershey McLaurin) and seven who graduated early from their high schools (cornerback Mumu Bin-Wahad, defensive lineman Aric Burton, quarterback Nicco Marchiol, safety Christion Stokes, punter Oliver Straw, wide receiver Jarel Williams and cornerback Tyrin Woodby).

These 13 new Mountaineers will be able to join their veteran teammates for upcoming strength and conditioning workouts, which for WVU get into full swing on Monday, Jan. 17, and then for the 15 spring practice sessions, which will begin in March.

West Virginia has 11 other signees who will enroll at WVU in the summer. The Mountaineers are also expected to sign eight additional prospects, be they high schoolers, jucos or four-year transfers, at various points prior to the 2022 season who also will join this class.
