OMG OMG OMG 2009 Recruiting




If the names Logan Heastie and Tajh Boyd don't ring a bell, you obviously don't follow recruiting. That's OK, I'm here to help.

You see, Heastie and Boyd are the first verbals in WVU's 2009 class. They also happen to be the #1 WR and #21 QB in the nation, respectively. Yes, you read that right: WVU has gotten a verbal commitment from the #1 WR in the country. You know, that position that catches all the passes -- yeah, we got one.

Now, as I write this, it's March 17, 2008. These are verbals for the 2009 class, which won't be able to sign letters of intent until next February. That means we have about 11 months of pure hell trying to hang on to both these guys with both hands. In fact, Urban Meyer is already taken to sleeping in a van outside Heastie's house. You don't even want to know Frank Beamer's doing outside Boyd's house. Ewwwwww!

So, in closing: I am ridiculously excited. All of West Virginia should be. These are two marquee recruits that could help to bring in the best recruiting class in WVU history. But I'm also cautious, knowing we're going to have a lot of tense moments over the next 11 months. Then again, I'd rather have them then be trying to steal them away from somebody else.
