MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Halfway through her high school career, Marley Washenitz has her college destination picked out. The Fairmont Senior rising junior guard has verbally committed to join the Class of 2022 at West Virginia University.
WVU was the first ‘Power 5’ conference school to make a scholarship offer to Washenitz last July. Virginia Tech and Boston College soon followed with offers and strong interest.
