Things have been quiet lately but with some of the staff out on the recruiting trail presently more offers and commitments could be on the way, particularly at the tight-end position.

The 2016 class feels like it could be on the verge of a few commitments with the spring wrapped up but the present set of commits is still a solid start at this point in the cycle. One of the most interesting and pleasantly surprising facts of the class is the number of instate and border-state players that make up the current class. With JaJuan Seider prowling Florida right now the number could change quickly, but as of now QB Cody Saunders is the only Florida boy of the bunch.

One position that WVU has traditionally struggled to recruit could be due for a good year. Holgorsen has been unable develop a game-changing, pass-catching tight end for his offense to date, but two are on the boards right now. Trevon Wesco of Lackawanna Community College is very familiar with the WVU program and could be the closest to committing. At 6'5" 260 lbs., he brings a college-ready frame with the ability to become a red-zone threat and the strength to be a solid blocker for the running game. There are a couple other schools in the picture but WVU is by far his biggest offer. Hopefully he can come in and follow in his fellow Falcon Kevin White's footsteps.

Thaddeus Moss is another tight-end on the boards that would be a great get for the Mountaineers. Standing 6'4" 240 lbs. coming out of high-school, it would not be surprising to see him grow a bit but he has great size and athletic ability already. His hands are impressive and if he heads to West Virginia the staff will definitely want to start sending a few balls his way. He does play defensive end as well but his best position looks like tight end. He has a few other big offers but WVU looks to be the closest to securing his skills and he is very pro-WVU on Twitter as well.
