Coach: WVU gets a ‘hidden gem’

Junior-college offensive lineman Stone Underwood gave his commitment to West Virginia’s 2013 football recruiting class back on Monday. He spent this past season playing at Copiah-Lincoln Community College out of Mississippi under head coach Glenn Davis.

“I think Stone is going to be one of those hidden gems that a lot of people didn’t know about,” Davis said on Tuesday’s MetroNews Statewide Sportsline. “He was a guy that we had recruited out of high school and we thought he had a tremendous upside…He’s a tremendous athlete for an offensive lineman and I think he’s going to be a steal for them.”

As for that athleticism, Davis said Underwood can run a 4.8.

“He can do things that most offensive linemen can’t do,” Davis said. “He’s a guy that can run and is athletic. He can get to the second or third level on guys pretty easy and he’s great on screens.”

You can watch the complete interview with Davis above.
