MORGANTOWN -

West Virginia football coach Dana Holgorsen announced the addition of quarterback David Isreal to the 2017 roster on Wednesday.

Isreal comes to the Mountaineers from Butler Community College in El Dorado, Kansas, where he helped the team to a 7-5 record in his freshman season.

Listed at 6-foot-2, 183 pounds, Isreal will be eligible to play for WVU this fall with three years of eligibility remaining.

Isreal made his own announcement on Sunday, the day after the Gold-Blue Game in Morgantown.

“First off, I would like to thank God for his glory and mercy,” Isreal wrote on his Twitter account. “Also for blessing me with the ability of playing this great game of football at the collegiate level. Want to also give thanks to my wonderful support system/family, without them none of this would’ve been possible. Want to thank my mother that sacrificed so much to put me in the situation that I’m in today and molding me into the young man that I am.

“With that being said,” Isreal continued, “I have officially committed to the University of West Virginia! I will be headed to Morgantown this summer with 4 for 3.”

West Virginia University will welcome a signal caller who accounted for 1,841 yards and 13 touchdowns on 126-of-242 passing, while adding two scores on the ground.

Holgorsen made it clear on Signing Day in February and in the months since that he prefers having the flexibility to add more signees as the team navigates through the spring and gets a better feel for its needs and who may still be available to fill them.

The Mountaineers will kickoff the 2017 season on Sept. 3, facing the Virginia Tech Hokies for the first time since the 2005 campaign. West Virginia finished last season with the most wins since joining the Big 12 Conference, posting a 10-3 overall record with a 7-2 showing in league play.
