National Signing Day: CB Brandon Napoleon Officially A West Virginia Mountaineer

Brandon Napoleon, the No. 45 rated cornerback recruit according to Scout.com, has committed to the West Virginia University Mountaineers, announcing the news and faxing in his National Letter of Intent on National Signing Day 2012. Napoleon, who played for St. Peter's Prep in Jersey City, NJ, chose WVU over offers from UConn, Illinois, Rutgers, and North Carolina, among others.

Although rated the No. 45 corner, the son of former WVU running back Eugene Napoleon played quarterback in high school and is expected to get his first crack on offense. Brandon adds depth to a dangerously thin signal-caller position, where he is expected to compete with current enrollees Paul Millard and Ford Childress for backup snaps behind Geno Smith. While Napoleon is definitely a better pure athlete than the other guys on the roster, don't sell him short. He can throw the ball too. The Mountaineers are lucky to have him.

Welcome home, Brandon!
