One of the three players to sign the so-called commitment letter on signing day, Jacky Marcellus is now bound to WVU by way of Friday’s signed national letter of intent. Note the end there: WVU has 26 players in the recruiting class. The specifics were a little sheltered on signing day, but the whispers were WVU could permissibly get to 28.
You’ll remember Marcellus was one of the three who kinda-sorta signed on national signing day and that there wasn’t much to be said about his future except that, obviously, he wasn’t aboard on the big day.
That didn’t look good because all of those questions are supposed to be answered before signing day.
And there he is, another quick-twitch, dangerous-in-space player Dana Holgorsen likes to collect.
The question about Marcellus seemed to be whether he’d be ready to go for the upcoming season. Long story short, that tricked to other things that could have possible altered his decision, but did not.
Marcellus had a knee injury during his senior season, rested and recuperated and then hurt the knee again and missed the rest of the season. There were other obstacles and delays along the way, so it would appear Marcellus and WVU simply made sure one was comfortable with the other before consummating this.
