West Virginia continues to bolster its 2022 recruiting class by putting an emphasis on the City of Brotherly Love.
On Friday, the Mountaineers received a commitment from Kevin Thomas, a 6-foot-3, 202-pound wide receiver from Neumann-Goretti High School in Philadelphia.
Thomas’ pledge to the Mountaineers marks the 16th commit of West Virginia’s 2022 recruiting class and the second straight Neumann-Goretti player to commit after hybrid defender Raleigh Collins III did so last week.

Thomas is listed as a 4-star prospect by Rivals and 3-star prospect by 247 Sports. He had a lengthy list of offers from high-level programs, including: Florida, Texas A&M, Penn State, Nebraska, Michigan State, Oregon, Tennessee, Pittsburgh, Maryland and Arizona State.
The Spartans were believed to be the Mountaineers’ biggest threat to land Thomas.
Thomas joins Jarel Williams of Saraland, Alabama as the second wide receiver commit in West Virginia’s upcoming recruiting class.
