MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — A third ‘4-star’ recruit has joined the WVU football Class of 2021. Germantown, Md. wide receiver Kaden Prather gave his verbal commitment to join the Mountaineers on Saturday.

Prather owns 40 Division I offers, 34 of those from FBS schools. He narrowed his top five down to WVU, Maryland, Oklahoma, Penn State, South Carolina. Prather’s offer list is deep and impressive, containing the likes of Alabama, Auburn, Baylor, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Ohio State, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Virginia Tech and Wisconsin.

Prather led Northwest High School to a 12-2 record in his junior season. The Jaguars advanced all the way to the Maryland 4A state championship game. Prather caught 41 passes for 895 yards and 9 touchdowns last season. He also played cornerback.

Listed as a 4-star recruit by many publications, Prather is also included in the ESPN 300 recruiting list. He checks in at No. 240 overall and No. 47 among wideouts.

Prather received a scholarship offer from West Virginia on June 17, 2019. Spring Valley lineman Wyatt Milum and Perry, Oh. running back Jaylen Anderson are also four-star recruits in WVU’s Class of 2021.
