MORGANTOWN - All but three of West Virginia's football recruits for the coming season are in school and working out.
The latest batch includes linebackers Jared Barber and Isaiah Bruce, running back Andrew Buie, defensive back Terrell Chestnut, tight end Cody Clay, offensive lineman Brandon Jackson, safety Nick Kwiatkowski, receiver KJ Myers, defensive end Kyle Rose and defensive lineman Shaq Rowell.
Earlier this summer freshmen Dustin Garrison, Dante Campbell, Russell Haughton-James and Marquis Lucas arrived.
Combined with the handful of transfers who enrolled earlier, that leaves just three newcomers who apparently are not enrolled - offensive lineman Justin Johnson, linebacker Shaq Petteway and defensive lineman Ben Bradley.
Rowell was the last of the group to enroll, having worked out some issues Monday. But Petteway isn't expected until at least the second semester of summer school.
And as for Johnson and Bradley, those could very well be academic casualties, although neither has been ruled out.
As for the transfers, Devon Brown, a slot receiver from Wake Forest, and Steve Paskorz, a linebacker from Notre Dame, were among those who enrolled earlier. Both are fifth-year seniors who transferred from their previous schools under NCAA rules that permit graduate students to transfer without having to sit out a season.
Another of the newcomers is junior college transfer safety Matt Moro.
In other football news, fifth-year senior guard Tyler Rader has been given a scholarship after spending his career as a walk-on.
The Nitro graduate, who has bounced around to different positions and rehabilitated a knee injury during his career, worked his way into the starting lineup at right guard at the end of spring drills.
