West Virginia University just signed the clear leader for "best name of the 2017 class," and junior college outside linebacker Quondarius Qualls could be a name you hear quite early on for the Mountaineers.

Originally a Southern Miss commit, Qualls verballed to West Virginia on October 3rd and never looked back. Qualls racked up 67 tackles, including 16.5 tackles for loss, 10 sacks and a forced fumble for junior college power Northwest Mississippi Community College.

Qualls enrolled at West Virginia this semester, and is already working out with the team ahead of the start of Spring training. Quondarius can add instant impact in the West Virginia linebacking corps, as his edge rushing ability is what drew the attention of the Mountaineer staff. Qualls' lead recruiters were Joe Wickline and defensive coordinator Tony Gibson.

Qualls was named a four-star prospect by Scout and the No. 27 junior college player in this years class. Quondarius will have three years to finish out his remaining two years of eligibility.
