It was a big weekend for the West Virginia football program and the Mountaineers' new coaching staff and at first glance it appears as though things went very well.
West Virginia defeated in-state rival Marshall 27-3 and plenty of high-profile recruits were in attendance to take it all in.
Richmond (Va.) Meadowbrook offensive tackle Morgan Moses is arguably the top recruit that was in town. The 6-foot-7, 347 pound lineman enjoyed himself and had plenty of good things to say about the Mountaineers.

"My host for the weekend was Josh Jenkins," Moses said. "I had a good time with him and my recruiting coach, Chris Beatty. They wanted to get all the guys from Virginia in at the same time, and the staff is trying to get a lot of the top guys from here. They think we can take them to the next level."
Moses was in town with fellow Virginians Jerod Askew, Tim Smith, Tajh Boyd, Dominik Davenport and Logan Heastie.
Boyd, Davenport and Heastie have already committed to the Mountaineers. Jenkins, Moses' host, was a four-star prospect from the Class of 2008 and is a true freshman in Morgantown.
"I really like the coaching staff," Moses continued. "The atmosphere was great. I had been there before but since it was an official visit I got to see a lot more and meet more people. I learned a lot more about the school. I took my time and got a long look at everything. The hospitality was great."
While Moses said he does not have a favorite he will begin to sort everything out in the coming weeks. This was his first official visit of the year. His next will be to Tennessee for their annual "Third Saturday in October" game against Alabama.
Moses still plans on announcing his decision at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
He also said he is still very interested in Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Miami, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Virginia Tech.
