The WVU football team was able to land a big name recruit out of Florida, and his name is Mike Harley. Harley is a big name wide receiver who was a nationally ranked top 400 player out of South Florida.
Some would have worries about Harley, as he is a bit undersized for the WR position at 5-foot-9. This is really little to no problem for Dana Holgorsen and the WVU football team, as they have really shown that they can make it work with any size receivers in the past.
His chances at WVU are a lot better then what most would think, even with the group of receivers that they already have on their roster. Harley is another speed threat that they now have on their roster, and they do love making room for any playmaker to join the team, which means they will find a place for him to stay.
This is a big step for the WVU team, and a big win for the football program. There were a lot of big name FBS schools looking to sign Harley to their roster. With Harley being the number 56 ranked receiver coming out into the recruiting class for 2017. Just in the past few weeks he was able to jump 60 in the 247 rankings.
When asked what he thought about committing to WVU Harley had this to say: “They always put their inside receivers into the league. They were my first offer. I can definitely play there my freshman year and learn from Shelton Gibson and Jovon Durante. Then it will be time to shine my sophomore and junior year.”

Harley decision was helped out by former and current players of WVU. They have produced a lot of talent at the Wide Receiver position, and even some NFL players, such as most recently Kevin White, Tavon Austin, and Stedman Bailey.
I can’t wait to see what Dana Holgorsen do with Harley and how he is able to bring his talents to Morgantown, and the spark that he can bring to the team.
