With one running back already committed in the 2013 recruiting class, West Virginia is still in hot pursuit of another.
Given the reputation of the Mountaineers explosive offense, finding another back shouldn't be difficult. One prospect who's name you'll want to keep an eye on is, Zaire Williams.
Williams, from Timber Creek High (NJ), has been high on West Virginia for a while. The interest between himself and the 'Eers staff is mutual. One reason Williams is high on the prospects of playing for WVU is his relationship with running backs coach, Robert Gillespie.
The 5-foot-11, 210 pound back visited Morgantown in April. He's also scheduled to visit again in June. There's also a possibility for another visit in September.
The Mountaineers are hard after Williams' teammate, Myles Nash.
Nash, a linebacker, is scheduled to visit for the season opener against Marshall. Both Williams and Nash have discussed playing together in college.
While a verbal pledge is definitely a possibility during his visit, Williams is hoping to focus on his senior season. In 2011, he rushed for 1,621 on 195 carries and 28 touchdowns. Those are numbers he's hoping to top in 2012.
According to Scout.com, Williams is considered a 3-star prospect.
In addition to WVU, he also holds offers from Iowa, UCONN, Pittsburgh and Temple.
