With already one offensive lineman committed for the 2013 recruiting class, the Mountaineers became one step closer recently to possibly gaining another.
Belle Vernon, PA native Dorian Johnson trimmed his large list of schools last week to four, and West Virginia made the cut.
Johnson, a 6-foot-6, 275 pound offensive tackle also added Penn State, Pitt and Ohio State to his list of suitors. Those schools were narrowed down from over 30 total offers. That list included national powers such as Alabama, LSU and Wisconsin among others.
West Virginia has several factors apparently working in their favor. Johnson is believed to want to stay closer to home, and look for an opportunity to compete for a starting job early.
While he attended the Mountaineers junior day in February, he had the time to discuss those details with the coaching staff. He was also able to view the entire campus with various family members.
He hopes to visit Morgantown again in June.
Johnson is rated a 4-star prospect by Scout.com and the nations # 12 recruit at his position.
We'll continue to update his recruitment as more details become available.
