MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — There’s yet another Wolfley entering the West Virginia football program, and his signing day is only three short years away.

Maverick Wolfley, a freshman linebacker/running back at Morgantown High School, committed to the Mountaineers this weekend within hours of receiving an offer from coach Dana Holgorsen.

“(Holgorsen) told me how I was the first freshman he’s ever offered, so it was kind of a special thing,” Wolfley told Rivals writer Keenan Cummings of “I accepted it immediately. It’s a dream come true.”

Wolfley’s father Dale was an offensive line letterman for West Virginia from 1987 to 1990 and remains involved with athletics fundraising as coordinator of the WVU Varsity Club. Wolfley’s uncle Ron played fullback for the Mountaineers from 1981 to 1984, and older brother Stone is a junior tight end at Morgantown High who’s committed to WVU’s 2015 recruiting class.

Currently listed at 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, Maverick Wolfley figures to have plenty of growing left—not to mention three more varsity seasons of development—before he makes his college choice official. But as a lifelong West Virginia fan with deep family ties to the program, he seemed thrilled by the opportunity that awaits.

“I’ve always wanted to come play for West Virginia,” he said. “And I want to play with my brother because he’s coming here too.”

    As it looks WVU don't much of a choice to recruit as early as they are , when other schools are already doing it . We just can't get behind and struggle to get caught up in recruiting. The reason I say that is LSU has all ready recruited a young boy in the eighth grade, so if you think it is a bit early to recruit a high school freshman think this is the eighth grade. One other thing West Virginia, if I'm not mistaken maybe 10 maybe 9 already have promises for next year which will fill the roster for scholarships players next year. ..... That's the way it is in recruiting anymore people. If you don't like it don't read it. Just try to accept it and go on. ( it is what it is ) can't change it. These young (men) boys what to be sure they have a scholarship lined up long before they get out of high school anymore that way they feel secured everybody's happy.

    maybe these young men mentioned here will herald the next generation of West Virginia "golden boys" . . . akin to the 50's era greats Sam Huff & Freddy Wyatt et al . . .
