OK, boys and girls, only a week left until signing day. Already, we’ve had quite a bit of action in the recruiting world.

  1. Odoms eliminated us yesterday.

  2. Any reason why Finau and Davis moved down? I heard Dunn is visiting UVA, so that pretty much eliminates us, but from what I gather, Finau is still likely to commit and I have heard nothing on Davis.

  3. Odoms was dropped to unlikely. I was just giving it a day before he leaves the list entirely.

    With the interest Finau is getting from Cal and USC, it just seems less likely that he’ll commit. Note I didn’t say unlikely, just less than a sure thing.

    That said, I still think we get him.

  4. Getting Finau will go a long way in determing the success of WVU next season. It wasn’t by accident that once Dingle started playing well the defense did too. They need a hoss that can step in right away and replace what Dingle brought to the table.

    Also, the thought of Shaw and Jenkins coming together to WVU makes me very happy.

    They get the above three recruits, the class will look just fine.

  5. A lot of WRs on there, I wonder if our chances improve now that we have Galloway on board?

  6. We landed 4-star defensive end Tevita Finau.
