Georgia wide receiver Sam James commits to West Virginia

The Mountaineers add a third wideout to the 2018 class, and this one is going to be a good one.

The commitments just keep rolling in for the Mountaineers, with Richmond Hill (GA) wide receiver Sam James the latest to give the West Virginia coaching staff his pledge.

The 6’-2”, 160lb. receiver camped at West Virginia two weeks ago and blew the coaching staff away, launching himself up to the top of their hot board. In fact, according to 247Sports’ Chris Anderson, West Virginia receivers coach Tyron Carrier was overheard telling new Mountaineer assistant Doug Belk that he could turn James into a first round pick.

James chose the Mountaineers this morning over Mississippi State, Maryland and Cincinnati, who he named in his top four late last month. Sam will be eligible to sign his National Letter of Intent with West Virginia this December, under the new football early signing period.

With James’ commitment, it is likely that West Virginia will only take maybe one more receiver in the 2018 class, unless someone comes along that they absolutely can’t pass on.
