WVU Picks Up Another Commitment
West Virginia’s run on football verbal commits continued over the weekend.
Saturday it was Chris Mayo’s turn, as the offensive lineman from New Jersey became the 10th commitment for WVU’s class of 2020.
A 6-foot-5, 325-pound three-star prospect from The Peddie School in Hightstown, New Jersey, Mayo had an offer list that also included the likes of Purdue, Rutgers, Auburn, Syracuse, Nebraska and a dozen others, but ultimately his decision came down to West Virginia and Kentucky. After a recent visit to Morgantown he picked the Mountaineers.
Mayo has played both offensive guard and tackle in high school, as well as defensive tackle, and could wind up at either offensive line spot in college, though most anticipate he’ll be a guard for WVU.
He’s the second offensive line prospect to pick West Virginia this week. Fairmont, West Virginia’s Zach Frazier, who is expected to be a center in college, committed to WVU on Thursday. Mayo and Frazier are the first two offensive line verbals in Neal Brown’s class of 2020, though there will certainly be several more to come before the members of this class can make their commitments binding by signing National Letters of Intent on Dec. 19.
