Without futher ado, the 2008 WBGV Signing Day Spectacular!
OK, a little more ado: We’ll be updating the list throughout the day…
- Jorge Wright, DE (Florida)
- Tevita Finau, DE (Phoenix C.C.)
- Ryan Clarke, FB/TE (Maryland)
- Tyler Urban, FB/TE/DE (Pennsylvania)
- JD Woods, WR (Florida) — Signed LOI
- Coley White, QB (Alabama) — Hopefully, Coley and Reggie Hunt are having a sleepover tonight. I think that’s what high school kids do these days.
- Josh Jenkins, G (West Virginia) - This is the single biggest signing we will make. That said, this also looks like good barometer for today’s success/failure. All signs point to success right now.
- Jatavious Miller, LB (Florida)
- Jerome Swinton, CB (Florida) — once thought to be lost, Swinton officially signed this morning.
- Robert Sands, S (Florida) - While he is only a 2-Star he has some speed and at 6'6" could pack on some pounds and soon pack a punch.
- Hale signed a LOI with Pitt. Have fun playing for a team that will only go to one bowl game in the next 4 years.
- Also, Greg Shaw has signed with LSU and Leonard Johnson has signed with Iowa State. I think I speak for all of us when I say, "Iowa fucking State?" Johnson is obviously an idiot but Shaw is a big loss.
- Reggie Hunt to Auburn and Ty Hilton to hometown Florida International. Remember when I said the Jenkins commitment would be a barometer of success today? I was wrong.
- The Sands signing is huge, literally, but losing Shaw, Hunt, Johnson, and Hilton are big blows.
- It appears that we won't get any big time "switches" with this class but nonetheless it is shaping up to be pretty damn good list. Shaw still baffles me because I thought he would "feel" more comfortable at WVU. Dang...
- Jenkins is a BAMF. He walked into his presser with a Michigan hat and then threw it into the crowd. HELL YEAH
- Did anyone see where Pryor said "Michigan Univeristy" at his press conference to announce that he wasn't going to announce today.
- Randall Dunn signed with VTech.
- Benji Kemoeatu, OL (Hawaii) From this article it appears as if he has "committed" to WVU but there is still no news on his LOI.
Likely To Sign
- Aki Vakalahi (JC — Arizona)
Somewhere Between 75/25 and 25/75:
- Martavious Odoms, WR (Florida)
Need A Late Push:
- Benji Kemoeatu, OL (Hawaii)
