Donte Thomas-Williams Makes It Official: He's A Mountaineer

The running back from North Carolina (along with Dravon Henry) is WVU's highest rated recruit in 2014.

Turn about is fair play. UNC took the state of West Virginia's best running back last year, so WVU did the same this year to the state of North Carolina.

With Dravon Henry, Donte Thomas-Williams makes up the second part of the jewels of the 2014 recruiting class for Coach Dana Holgorsen and the Mountaineers.

Thomas-Williams, listed at 6' 220 lbs from Hillside High School in Durham, NC, chose the Mountaineers over an extremely impressive list of offers from the likes of Clemson, Florida State, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, UCLA, Vanderbilt & Virginia Tech.

He is the 12th rated running back overall and 11th best player from the state of North Carolina by the 247 scouting service.

West Virginia's status as a place for dangerous running backs has been re-asserted and WVU will enter camp with a LARGE stable of capable running backs this fall.

Welcome Home Donte!!
