West Virginia's latest verbal commitment at quarterback has a different style than those of the previous two years.

Chavas Rawlins, a three-star prospect ranked as the #58 quarterback in the country by Scout.com, provides a departure in style from Ford Childress and Paul Millard, West Virginia's previous two signees at the position. Where those two quarterbacks are pocket passers, Rawlins offers a running option that makes him a threat when passing plays break down. He can escape the pocket and keep plays alive, but when he decides to run he gets away quickly and can make defenses pay for not accounting for him as a rusher.

That doesn't mean, of course, that Rawlins is primarily a runner. He has shown improvement as a passer after a round of camps and offseason work, and could provide an intriguing option in quarterback battles of the future at West Virginia.

The rising senior also had offerd from Georgia Tech, Illinois, North Carolina, Northwestern, Pitt, Purdue, Rutgers, USF and Virginia, among others.

BlueGoldNews.com will have more from Rawlins soon.
