WVU Adds In-State Recruit Dewayne Grantham To 2019 Class

While the men’s basketball team was taking on the Kentucky Wildcats, the football coaching staff was adding in-state recruit Dewayne Grantham to the 2019 class. The Martinsville standout is officially headed to Morgantown to be a Mountaineer.

Last summer Grantham was in town for a 7-on-7 tournament. Before he could get back to Martinsburg he had picked up an offer. He fits the bill that the Mountaineers love as a potential hybrid safety/outside linebacker. Tony Gibson loves having guys like this to work with.

The junior from Martinsburg High School is 6’0″ and 195 pounds. The linebacker is ranked as a three-star by 247Sports and a two-star by Rivals. ESPN has not yet ranked him.

This is the third commitment the Mountaineers have landed for the 2019 class. The Dewayne Grantham commitment jumped the Mountaineers from 34th to 26th in the 247Sports rankings.

It’s good to keep the in-state talent home. Congratulations to Grantham for his commitment to becoming a Mountaineer and best of luck.
