House will attend summer school classes and will be a member of
the WVU squad when players report for preseason camp August 5.
"We're excited about J.R. joining our Mountaineer family,"
Rodriguez says. "He has a lot of rehab to do to get his shoulder ready
for August, but he is a great addition to our program."
The 1996 and 1998 West Virginia state high school player of the
year, when he passed for a then-national-record 14,457 career yards at
Nitro High, House has spent the past six years in the Pittsburgh Pirates' baseball organization, earning a brief stint in the major
leagues in 2003 and 2004.
House attended West Virginia's spring football game on Apr. 16th.
