He led Navarre High to an 11-2 record and an appearance in the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) Class 6A District 2 Championship and advance to the Region 1 Finals (state quarterfinals).

Fast-Rising DL Commits to West Virginia

Safety Rashean Lynn – Signed at 9:41 a.m.

Rashean Lynn Jr. starred at Cocoa High in Cocoa, Florida. He was named to the 2018 Florida All-Star team as a senior, while making 30 catches for 440 yards and four touchdowns. He was rated a three-star prospect by Rivals, 247Sports and ESPN. Lynn also received offers from Florida, Indiana, Louisville, Kentucky, Oregon, Purdue, Rutgers, Syracuse, Virginia and Wake Forest.

Offensive Tackle Darnell Wright – Yet to Commit

Per all reports, Darnell Wright will choose between West Virginia and Tennessee at 4 p.m. on ESPN2. All indications seem to indicate that Wright will go with the Vols, despite a late surge by Coach Neal Brown and the Mountaineers.

As they say, it ain’t over till it’s over. Until he officially makes his choice, the Mountaineers are still in the hunt.

It’s very encouraging that Neal Brown was able to get the Mountaineers in the hunt for this big of a prospect in such a short amount of time in Morgantown.

Stay tuned as this report will be updated as more details roll in.
