WVU Continues Run With Pennsylvania Standout

WVU Continues  Run With Pennsylvania Standout

West Virginia continued to move into the homestretch of its football recruiting in the Class of 2018 when T.J. Banks announced that he will be joining the Mountaineer program next year. Banks is the 18th commitment in the class, and the 19th “counter” in terms of the 25 scholarships that can be allocated. (transfer Skyler Simcox is the additional player in the group).


A multi-talented performer on both sides of the ball, Banks has been used at tight end, running back and wide receiver on offense and at end and linebacker on defense over the course of his career. His mobility and versatility keep him on the field regularly for East Allegheny, where he plays almost every snap from scrimmage.

He has helped the Wildcats to a 5-2 record to date with two games remaining in the regular season. East Allegheny stands in second place in the Class 2 A Three Rivers Conference, helped by Banks’ 27 catches for 332 yards and five scores on offense, and his patrolling play on the edge of the defense.

    I think this is a very good pickup for the Mountaineers. WVU already had four defensive line commits in this class, so if it was going to add another DL, it was going to have to be a really good one … and T.J. Banks appears to be just that. Athletic enough to play wide receiver in high school, many thought he would be a tight end in college, but WVU likes him as a defensive end. Anytime the Mountaineers beat Pitt out for a Pittsburgh area kid, that’s big news.


    Runor has it he was given the chance to be a TE first.  But I agree with his size and athletic ability he would make a great DL.


    Confirmed that Butler. Thanks for the update.
