The Florida native, who verbally committed to WVU in October, has signed his letter of intent.

Defensive end Adam Shuler is now a West Virginia Mountaineer. The 6-foot-5, 255-pound native of Longwood, Fla., stuck with the commitment he originally gave in October after taking an official visit to Morgantown for WVU's win over Kansas.

Ranked as a 3-star prospect by all three major recruiting networks (Scout, Rivals, and 247), Shuler was primarily recruited by Mountaineer assistant coach Joe DeForest. He took an official visit to Indiana in December, but opted to stick with WVU through the final weeks leading up to signing day.

In addition to the Hoosiers and Mountaineers, the Lyman High School product held offers from Cincinnati and Purdue, among others. Depth at defensive end was a concern for WVU in this recruiting class, given the loss of Shaq Riddick, Brandon Golson, and Dontrill Hyman. Shuler will have to work to earn a spot in the rotation, but coaches will surely be glad to have an extra body at the position.
