West Virginia has pulled another one out of the Pitt Panthers’ backyard, and Exree Loe will continue his football career as a Mountaineer.
Loe had committed to Pitt very early in his high school career. He reopened his commitment in the summer of 2016 after taking visits to other schools. During his senior year, Loe began to entertain more offers, and eventually completely reopened his recruitment. This, reportedly, eventually lead to a two school race between the West Virginia Mountaineers and the Maryland Terrapins.
The 6’-0”, 190lb cornerback looks to have the potential of continuing the tradition of hard hitting West Virginia defenseive backs. He also played on the offensive side of the ball in high school, and appears to have decent ball skills when he does get his hands on it.
Defenseive Coordinator Tony Gibson was personally involved in Loe’s recruitment. There will be big shoes to fill this season at the cornerback position, and Exree will likely have every opportunity to contribute immediately.
Exree entertained offers from Pitt, Rutgers, Louisville, Maryland, Tennessee, and many more before finally signing with the Mountaineers.
