West Virginia has added nine additional players to its 2021 football roster, with a handful more expected over the next few weeks.
Enrolling in school and arriving on campus recently were scholarship freshmen Aubrey Burks, Ja’Corey Hammett, Justin Johnson, Saint McLeod, Wyatt Milum and Hammond Russell IV. They are joined by transfers Lance Dixon (Penn State) and Charles Woods (Illinois State).
Walk-on Bryce Biggs also joined the group in enrolling recently.
Among those expected to enroll at WVU in the near future are running back Jaylen Anderson, defensive back Caleb Coleman and offensive lineman Tomas Rimac. Coleman just completed his junior college career this past weekend, contributing a tackle from his cornerback position as his Hutchinson Blue Dragons defeated Snow College, 29-27, for the NJCAA National Championship on Saturday.
Rimac was also in competition of a different sort over the weekend, and he also brought home a title with a win in the Ohio Division I State Discus Championship.

West Virginia is still working actively in the transfer market, and is expected to add another player or two to its 2021 roster over the summer.
On the basketball front, freshmen Kobe Johnson and Seth Wilson have been announced by the men’s program as enrollees. That pair of incoming freshmen join grad transfers Dimon Carrigan, who enrolled at WVU last month. Two other transfers who have signed with the Mountaineers, Malik Curry and Pauly Paulicap, are expect in Morgantown at some point in the near future. The women’s program welcomed transfer Ari Gray to campus this week.
