National Signing Day: OLB/DE Eric Kinsey Officially A West Virginia Mountaineer

After a bit of a hold up, Eric Kinsey, a 6'3, 240 lbs outside linebacker and defensive end from Miami (Florida) Northwestern High School,has committed to the West Virginia University Mountaineers, announcing the news and faxing in his National Letter of Intent on National Signing Day 2012. Kinsey, a 3-star prospect and the No. 103 ranked outside linebacker by Scout.com, chose the Mountaineers over offers from Ole Miss, FIU, Louisville, Nebraska, USF, and Vanderbilt.

Kinsey is a solid pickup at another area of need as WVU transitions into the Big XII, which is obviously a pass-happy league. Given the transition to a 7-man front, Kinsey should have a huge opportunity to come in and compete for playing time right away if he can learn the defense and figure out how to get pressure on opposing quarterbacks.

Welcome home, Eric!
