These three players will join seven other new recruits as part of the 2017 recruiting class. Getting 10 players on campus early where they can begin working with strength and conditioning coaches along with meeting their new teammates will go a long way in making sure that 2016 wasn’t a fluke for Dana Holgorsen’s squad. 2017 will come with a lot of expectations after the team won 10 games in a down year for the Big 12. With Will Grier expected to take over for Skyler Howard and the first game against Virginia Tech at FedEx Field, 2017 could be a banner year for the Mountaineers and this incoming squad.
