WVU commit Devell Washington surprised many people when he chose Neal Brown and the Mountaineers over several Big 10 powers. Now he’s trying to shock even more people by convincing Rashawn “Trouble” Williams to chose West Virginia over Purdue. It just so happens that Washington is a good friend of “Trouble.”
Rashawn Williams hasn’t even made a visit to the West Virginia campus, so many were surprised when the four-star recruit had West Virginia in his top five.
