The WVU football team is an attractive landing spot for some of the nation’s top wide receivers. The program has built a reputation on getting the ball into its playmaker’s hands.
Deshon Stoudemire will be one of the next in line to run up and down Mountaineer Field. He recently committed to the WVU football team. He visited the Morgantown campus not to long ago and displayed the WVU football jersey in several pictures he posted on social media.
From Georgia, Stoudemire is used to the fast brand of football played in the south. The wide receiver in the class of 2019 will bring that edge with him to Morgantown next year. According to 247sports.com, Stoudemire is 6-foot-1, 175 pounds.
His speed and catching ability make him a three-star prospect. The site lists him as the the 115th best prospect in the state of Georgia. Since his commitment and as he prepares for his senior season, he should crack the top 75 in the talent-rich state of Georgia.
His commitment has already helped the Mountaineers in the national recruiting ranks. According to 247sports.com, the WVU football team has moved from No. 29 to No. 25 in the recruiting rankings. A program like West Virginia should definitely be in the top 25.
Stoudemire plays for Stephenson High School located in Stone Mountain Georgia. Last season, the Jaguars went 8-4 and made it to the first round of the state playoffs. WVU football legend Bruce Irvin is also from Stone Mountain and attended Stephenson before dropping out. He eventually earned his G.E.D. and went to a junior college before coming to West Virginia.
On his hudl.com videos, Stoudemire displays superb speed and attention to detail on his routes. He can catch anything in his vicinity and make a long day for the opposing team’s secondary.
He needs to beef up in order to compete against Big 12 talent, but he will be in good shape once he officially arrives in Morgantown. Stoudemire is a nice signing that definitely makes the class of 2019 a stronger one for the WVU football team.
