On Friday, the West Virginia Mountaineers landed their 10th commitment in the class of 2015.
Sheldrick Redwine, a cornerback/safety prospect from Killian High School in Miami, Florida gave his pledge to West Virginia.
The 6’2, 190-pounder hopes to play early and the belief that he can is one reason he picked West Virginia.
“Coach (JaJuan) Seider talked to me a lot and told me they would really like me up there,” Redwine told Chris Anderson of 24/7 Sports. “He said I could have a chance at playing early… They’re also a prestigious academic school.”
Redwine also likes that West Virginia has a lot of players from South Florida on their roster.
“They’re catching a lot of commitments from south Florida,” he said. “And that’s where the best athletes are.”
4-star safety Kendrell McFadden, 4-star wide receiver Jovon Durante, 3-star wide receiver Khalil Lewis and 3-star cornerback Kevin Williams are also West Virginia commits from Florida, meaning half of their class are from that area.
Redwine has not been ranked by 24/7 Sports yet.
He chose West Virginia over offers from Appalachian State, Bowling Green, Charlotte and Cincinnati, among others.
