Keeping track of West Virginia football’s scholarship situation

Take a look at the scholarship chart to see what the Mountaineers are working with heading into the Early Signing Period

NCAA Football: Texas at West Virginia Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports

The West Virginia Mountaineers football team has 85 scholarships that they are able to hand out each year to the players on the roster. There’s never quite a set number for the class sizes that they bring in and the roster is always fluid with transfers, players declaring for the NFL Draft and more.

The chart below is a living, breathing document and will be updated frequently to reflect the availability of scholarship spots.
