WVU Football will be one for the ages

Imagine if you are Rich Rodriguez. You have two Juniors coming back next year in First Team Consensus All_American Running Back Steve Slaton and probably the single most explosive Quarterback WVU has ever had in Pat White.

Both of these guys if topped 1,000 yards last season and is indisputably the best Dynamic Duo in college football hands down. They are just way too explosive and just too fast for everyone. Even our backup Quarterback could step right in and replace White as he did against Rutgers.

This past season we were pre-season #5 and a few sports writers actually picked us to win the National Championship and we did finish in the top 10 playing as a banged up team late in the year. Basically all of our play makers on offense are coming back.

NOW, this is where it goes from very good to oh shit.

There is a High School Running Back who many experts are saying he is not only the best in this class, but maybe the best running back to come out of High School in quite some time. His name is Noel Devine and he was in Morgantown over the weekend. As per the article I just posted:

He could be lining up alongside West Virginia star Steve Slaton next year in what would unquestionably be the fastest backfield ever assembled. He could become the elite playmaker Florida State has been missing for years. He could be the star new Alabama coach Nick Saban rides to glory.--Stewart Mandell

Pretty impressive accolades for the guy and a rather impressive statement from Sports Illustrated. All of the recruiting sites think this kid is the best they have seen in some time and could be an impact player for any team in the country.

Tomorrow is Letter of Intent day, it is the first day that a kid can sign a binding agreement for his scholarship the next season. Noel Devine just announced where he will be playing next year. I guess we are going to see that fastest backfield ever assembled next season in Morgantown.

Some video footage of him.
