West Virginia has added a second offensive lineman to its football recruiting class of 2022.
Just a couple of weeks after Charlie Katarincic of Choate Rosemary Hall committed to the Mountaineers, Sullivan Weidman joined him in pledging to the program via Twitter.

Weidman had offers from nearly two dozen schools, including Power Five programs Arizona State, Boston College, Duke, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Louisville, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Syracuse, Vanderbilt and Virginia. He also recently announced he would visit Pitt, Virginia and Nebraska, as well as WVU, in late March. He had announced a top three of Indiana, Nebraska and WVU on March 26.
Weidman will play for the Southshore Dragons in the Elite Spring Football League this year, which is a group of four teams formed by Elite High School Football Clinics to allow more competition and play for prospects in the northeast. He was picked to participate in the league on March 29, and is scheduled to begin practice on Saturday. Games are tentatively set to begin in May.
An offensive guard earlier in his career, his height, reach and mobility made him a natural for a move to tackle, where his excellent footwork and quickness in protecting the edge of the pocket made him a prime recruiting target. His quickness in pulling and getting to downfield blocking targets also stands out on video.
Weidman is the third player in WVU’s Class of 2022, joining Katarincic and Spring Valley’s Corbin Page.
