Running back Martell Pettaway is now a West Virginia Mountaineer. From Martin Luther King HS in Northeast Detroit, Martell comes in a 5'10, 205lbs. and committed to WVU in June. He's received several offers from schools like Michigan State, Ohio State, Michigan, Iowa, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Cincinnati, and many others, but Martell wants to be in Morgantown.
He's joining a talented stable of West Virginia running backs, but if you wants his touchdown run from the Semper Fidelis Bowl, you'll see why the coaching staff is excited to have Martell on the roster.
