Highly-rated wide receiver recruit Deshon Stoudemire of Stone Mountain, Georgia holds offers from Auburn, Ohio State, Michigan State, Louisville and more. He committed to West Virginia and became the fifth commit for the class of 2019.
Doug Belk, the cornerbacks coach of the Mountaineers, used his ties to his home state of Georgia to help land this top prospect. He has ties to the Atlanta area particularly.
Stoudemire pledged his commitment to the Mountaineers midway through his weekend visit in Morgantown. After next year West Virginia will have a major need in the receiving department with David Sills and Gary Jennings Jr. set to graduate.
