Every college football program has a list of infamous recruits who were billed as superstars that would change the future of their teams—and West Virginia is no different.
Some of these recruits live up to that billing, others end up as busts, while some don't even make it to campus.
We're going to take a look at some of the most hyped Mountaineer recruits ever.
The criteria for this list is almost entirely based off of recruiting hype from the media and recruiting websites—not necessarily the player's on-field performance in college.
As a result, all of the recruits on this list come from the last decade or so. If you have any other names you feel were left off this list—particularly from before the Rivals/Scout/247 era, feel free to share them in the comment section below.
