The West Virginia Mountaineers have added 6’0 185 pound Jackie Matthews from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College. Matthews is a 3 star JUCO prospect and had several offers, but it ultimately came down to WVU and UCF. Matthews had planned a visit to UCF, but it appears that that trip will be cancelled.
In his Twitter announcement, Matthews said, “First off I would like to thank God for blessing me with the opportunity to compete at the next level and the ability to fulfill my dreams. I am truly grateful for the opportunity Mississippi Gulf Coast provided for me. With that being said, I would like to announce that I’m 100% committed to West Virginia University.”

With a lack of depth at the secondary position, Matthews has a chance to step in and get playing time in his first year with the team. Welcome Home, Jackie!
