Aaron Lewis, the 6’5 240 pound Defensive Lineman out of Williamstown, New Jersey, recently committed to West Virginia University. This was a huge commitment for the Mountaineers, but now he will play the role as lead recruiter in the state of West Virginia. Lewis, during an interview with Rivals’ Adam Friedman, said that several big-time New Jersey prospects could follow him to Morgantown.
“I have a couple of guys that I’m going to get to come down these country roads. Tarheeb Still really likes West Virginia and so does Chris Mayo and Tirek Austin-Cave. We’re all going to take our official visit together. They’re all guys that love West Virginia and we just have to sell them with that one visit.”
Tarheeb Still (6’0 175 pound Cornerback, Sicklerville, New Jersey) – Still, a 3 star recruit, holds offers from 18 schools, including Baylor, Boston College, Maryland, North Carolina, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech and West Virginia. He’s the 26th ranked recruit from New Jersey and is currently 80% on Rivals’ FanFutureCast.
Chris Mayo (6’5, 325 pound Offensive Guard, Hightstown, New Jersey – Mayo, a 4 star recruit, is the 7th ranked prospect in the state of New Jersey. held offers from virtually every big-name school in the country, but recently cut his list to Arizona State, Auburn, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, Nebraska, Purdue and West Virginia.
Tirek Austin-Cave (6’2 215 pound Inside Linebacker, Camden, NJ) – Austin-Cave holds offers from Baylor, Maryland, Miami, Rutgers, Syracuse, Temple and West Virginia, but has seemed to cut his list to Rutgers, Temple and West Virginia. Rivals currently has him at 100% on the FutureCast and based on his Twitter account it appears he’s very close to a West Virginia lock.
