The commitment train for West Virginia keeps on rolling.
After picking up a pledge from Blanche Ely (Fla.) defensive back Kevin Williams on Friday, the Mountaineers secured three more verbal commitments over the weekend.
The first two came from Franklin (Md.) athletes Jacquez and Jordan Adams, a set of twins who have dominated Friday nights in the area northwest of Baltimore. Jordan Adams, who plays wide receiver and defensive back, held double-digit offers from the likes of Virginia Tech, Virginia, Wisconsin and more.
Jacquez Adams, on the other hand, has been tasked with playing quarterback for his high school squad. That's not where he will be playing at the college level - WVU is bringing him in as an athlete - and the lack of film of him at other positions has kept colleges from extending offers at the same rate. Still, the Mountaineers' Lonnie Galloway saw the potential and offered them both, and that was a major reason for their commitment.
They offered me and my brother, so that's a big thing because we wanted to stick together," said Jordan Adams. "And also just the feeling of being wanted that much is a great feeling."
Jacquez Adams later picked up an offer from Wisconsin, giving the brothers a lot to think about, but once they got to Morgantown they knew West Virginia was the place for them.
"I had a great bond with all of the coaching staff and I felt comfortable there," said Jacquez Adams. "They have my majors that I'm interested in and they are just great people to be around."
Both players received three-star ratings in the 247Sports Composite, and their commitments pushed West Virginia up to fifth in the 247Sports Team Rankings for 2015, behind only Texas A&M, LSU, Alabama and Florida State.
Jordan Adams is being recruited as a defensive back, while Jacquez Adams says he will get his start at slot receiver.
The third commitment of the weekend came from a familiar place, although Mountaineer fans were still shocked at the news. Morgantown High linebacker Maverick Wolfley gave his word to the West Virginia coaching staff that he would be a Mountaineer ... in 2017.
"[WVU coach Dana Holgorsen] told me I was the first freshman that he's ever offered," said Wolfley, who is the nephew of former Mountaineer fullback Ron Wolfley (1981-84), son of former Mountaineer lineman Dale Wolfley (1987-90) and brother of 2015 commitment Stone Wolfley, a tight end.
Not surprisingly, it didn't take long for the freshman recruit to jump on the offer.
"I was invited to go to the Junior Day and after we got done eating, Coach Holgorsen wanted to see me in his office," recalled the 6-foot-2, 205-pounder. "We sat down and he told me he wanted to offer me. Since I always wanted to go there, I said 'yes' right away. It's always been a dream."
