Smallwood Becomes Latest Mountaineer Commitment

Updated:
CHARLESTON -

The WVU football staff received their third running back commitment for the 2013 recruiting class on Wednesday when Elkton, Md. (Eastern Christian Academy) product Wendell Smallwood announced his intentions to become a Mountaineer.

Smallwood is listed at 5'11" and 194 pounds by Rivals.com and reports scholarship offers from Auburn, Boston College, Connecticut, Hawaii, Rutgers and Temple.  He recently narrowed his list to the Scarlet Knights and Mountaineers before ultimately making his decision.

The recruiting website also lists him as the nation's 33rd overall running back and MDHigh.com credits him as the 13th top prospect from the state of Maryland.

His teammate, Daikiel Shorts, committed to WVU on July 30th and the pair has stated previously their desire to play together at the next level.

Smallwood's commitment means that WVU now has 13 recruits for the upcoming class.  Joining him in the backfield in Morgantown will be DeShawn Coleman and Zaire Williams, both of whom are also ranked as one of the nation's top 50 backs.

During the 2011 season, Smallwood competed for Red Lion Christian Academy (Bear, Del.) before transferring this past spring.

The status of 2012 running back signee Roshard Burney remains unclear.
