Deshawn Coleman, who visited WVU earlier this year, accepted the school's scholarship offer and ended the recruiting process early.

"I was at West Virginia two weeks ago and they offered me," Coleman told Scout.com earlier this year. "I really liked it a lot there. Coach (Dana) Holgorsen said he really liked me and that he would really like to coach me. He told me they need me there."

He avceraged an eye-popping 14 yards per carry while being named to the Associated Press first team all-state squad. He had offers from Penn State and Purdue, as well as interest from at least a dozen other Big Ten, ACC and Big 12 schools.
