The West Virginia Moutaineers climbed dramatically in the 2015 class rankings this weekend as they landed three-star cornerback Kevin Williams on Friday and then brothers Jaquez and Jordan Adams on Saturday.
Williams, a Florida native, received an offer from the Mountaineers Thursday and committed just a day later as he chose West Virginia over Central Michigan. The 6-foot-1, 180-pound cornerback is rated as the 91st best corner in the nation and has good length and instincts to develop into starting role after a year or two in Morgantown.
On Saturday, the Mountaineers were able to reel in the talented Adams brothers out of Maryland at their Junior Day events.
Jordan Adams is rated as a three-star prospect as an athlete and cornerback. The 6-foot, 170-pounder has been taking in multiple offers over the course of the winter months as he chose West Virginia over Boston College, NC State, and Rutgers. He is expected to wind up on the defensive side of the ball at cornerback once enrolled in 2015.
Jordan’s brother, Jaquez, is also rated as three-star prospect, but on the offensive side of the ball at wide receiver. The 5-foot-11, 165-pound speedster was also in attendance at the Mountaineers’ Junior Day this past weekend and picked West Virginia over Wisconsin, his only other offer.
Jaquez projects to play the slot position and has great footwork and quickness off the line of scrimmage and after the catch.
The addition of the trio of three-stars now puts the Mountaineers’ 2015 class ranked fifth in the nation and first in the Big 12. They currently have nine verbal commitments and are led by two four-star players in safety Kendrell McFadden and wide receiver Jovon Durante.
