1st 2008 Commitment?

West Virginia has landed it's first commitment for the class of 2008, Josh Jenkins. The Parkersburg High Junior has decided to skip the recruiting process and go where he's wanted to go all along.

"“It's a load taken off my shoulders,"” said Jenkins moments following the Big Reds' 35-7 victory over Huntington. "It was completely my decision. There was never any pressure to commit early or to wait until next season."”

A first team choice after his sophomore campaign with the red and white, Jenkins made his choice official Friday prior to his team'’s MSAC matchup with the Highlanders.

Not many sophomores are selected first team all-state, even in West Virginia. Josh has the size and quickness to excel in the West Virginia offense. And he still has a couple more years to grow. I've met Josh, and he seems like a good kid. Be very excited Mountaineer fans, Josh has the potential to be very special!
