The West Virginia Mountaineers continue their success in Ohio with a commitment Friday from Jewone Snow, a three-star linebacker from Canton (Ohio) McKinley High School. Snow chose West Virginia over Purdue, Michigan State, Cincinnati, Illinois, and Indiana.
"West Virginia goes to a good bowl game every year, and are often in the BCS hunt," Snow said. It is just a great atmosphere and environment for me. The experiences I had at their games were amazing, especially the rivalry games, like the one against Pittsburgh. I am glad to be a Mountaineer."
Snow said the West Virginia staff was "really excited" to get his commitment.
"They have a great family environment there," Snow said. "The love they have for their players in unexplainable. The fans, the students, the whole are just loves West Virginia football. I just feel it is a really great place to be at."
Early in the recruiting process, Jewone figured he would play football in the Big Ten. Jewone is the son of former Michigan standout Garland Rivers and nephew of Michigan State football legend Percy Snow and basketball legend Eric Snow.
"To be honest, I never thought I would play in the Big East. I always thought I would go to the Big Ten. That is going to change though," Snow said with a laugh.
Snow if the fourth Ohio prospect to commit to the Mountaineers in the class of 2010. He joins Rivals100 prospect Braylon Heard, and Warren Harding standouts Mike Dorsey and Davion Rogers.
