MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia added a 2015 commitment from three-star Miramar (Fla.) High receiver Kahlil Lewis on Wednesday. Lewis committed the same day his high school coach Damon Cogdell was hired to join WVU’s defensive coaching staff.

The Mountaineers hope the Miramar pipeline continues to pay off in coming days as two 2014 prosects—cornerback Tyrek Cole (No. 41 nationally) and safety Kendrell McFadden (No. 236)—are set to announce their decisions.

After making 20 catches for 372 yards and four touchdowns as a junior, Lewis chose West Virginia over Nebraska and Western Michigan. He was recruited by WVU running backs coach JaJuan Seider.

“He’s a nice combination of size and speed at 6-foot-1, 180 pounds,” said Keenan Cummings of the Rivals website WVSports.com. “Lewis has the size to play outside and the physical build to go over the middle. A very physical wide receiver, Lewis takes pride in out-muscling cornerbacks and blocking down field.”

Lewis becomes the fourth junior to pledge to WVU’s 2015 class, joining receiver Jovon Durante (Miami), running back William Cameron (Durham, N.C.) and tight end Stone Wolfley (Morgantown).

  • stevewvu

    what an awful remark

  • Matt

    I dont know.....to me, "20 catches for 372 yards and four touchdowns" isn't really that impressive to warrant a D1ticket.

  • WVcoal

    Obviously WVU needs all the help it can get -- welcome aboard Kahlil! Now go get some of your buddies to join you in Morgantown.

  • Jonathan

    I hate to be that guy, but if a recruit's other offers are from schools like Western Michigan and Nebraska...he probably isn't a top-tier guy like we need.

    • scott

      yeah really, Nebraska is a nobody

    • CPA

      Plus, he's a 2015 kid that will most likely receive more offers his senior year.

    • stevewvu

      yeah I hate when kids choose WVU over schools like Nebraska...Jonathan you need go back to reading about how great Marshall is since they won 20 games of which 2 were against teams with winning records.

      • don

        I'm a100 per cent mountaineer, but you guys need to give credit when it is earned. Marshall did a great job this year and have a good stable of players returning. A heck of a lot more than w e can say. Fortunately, we didn't have tp play them or that would have been another humiliating loss for wvu.

  • Martinsburg Resident

    Looks like WVU becoming Miramar's preferred University... we have a great history with athletes from this HS. Keep up this solid recruiting and all these naysayers will have to eat their words in a few years... Let's Go Mountaineers! Welcome to "Almost Heaven WV" recruits...

      Wow Dave I hope you feel better little man

  • Hillboy

    Dave, what other superpowers do you have besides being able to judge someone's moral character from a photo?

    • Dave

      Sorry...I meant that it should have been a better photo. I'm sure that there is a better photo of the young man in his uniform. No judgement cast...just stating that it was a bad photo...like one from a police report.

        Also known as a Marshall referral sheet.

  • GoEers

    Very impressed with the 2014 recruiting class and now by the looks of it the 2015 class is going to be one of WVU's finest ever!

    Great job by the coaching staff! Let's Go Mountaineers!!

    • Harpers Ferry

        • dbm

          • stevewvu

            keep being a jealous marshall troll

  • ernie

    WVU needs to recruit Kashaun Haley from Capital High School for 2015. Also, they should get James Walton there this year as a preferred walk on.

    • BH

      I hope the WVU staff takes a good look at the Capital quarterback, Tyree Pratt. He is a very good athlete with Division 1 potential.

    • Don

      Ernie you are right about Haley he will be a stud in college

  • Dave

    Congratulations Kahlil. Thanks for chosing WVU.
