West Virginia State got signatures from 32 players, including a haul of 11 players from West Virginia.

New WVSU coach Jon Anderson said in a news release from the university that making inroads in West Virginia was a top priority for himself and his staff since taking over in Institute late in 2012.
"Number one, we wanted to focus on the state of West Virginia," he said. "We worked hard to introduce ourselves to the state high school coaches and West Virginia ended up being the state where we got the most recruits from."
The University of Charleston added some West Virginia flavor to its roster too. The Golden Eagles signed Martinsburg quarterback Justin "Cookie" Clinton, Parkersburg South's Logan Cox and Ritchie County offensive lineman Sammy Hall.
