West Virginia lands three prospects

AM ET


Defensive end Tyree Owens (Oviedo, Fla./Oviedo) and pair of offensive tackles -- Jamie Herr (Elkton, Md./Eastern Christian) and Walter Rauterkus (Avon, Ohio/Avon) -- each committed this week to West Virginia, according to multiple reports.

Owens, a 6-foot-4, 236-pound prospect, selected the Mountaineers over scholarship offers from Boston College, Cincinnati, Duke, Eastern Illinois, Florida International, Florida Atlantic, Georgia Tech, Iowa State, Marshall, Minnesota, North Carolina State, Troy, Virginia, Wake Forest and Wisconsin.

He posted an electronically-timed 4.88 40-yard dash, 4.62 20-yard shuttle, 32.5-inch vertical, 34-foot power throw and 81.78 SPARQ this spring at a Nike combine.

"West Virginia had the best family feel," Owens told the Orlando Sentinel. "When I got there (on a visit this past weekend) they welcomed me with open arms and it was everything I could have hoped for... just great the whole time I was there."

Herr, one of many FBS prospects from Eastern Christian Academy, was also offered by Boston College, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Pittsburgh, Rutgers and Temple. He's 6-5 and 265 pounds.

Ohio was Rauterkus' only other scholarship offer. Programs including Ball State, Bowling Green, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan State, Nebraska and Purdue also recruited the 6-6, 285-pound prospect.

West Virginia's 2014 class is at 11 players.

Caleb Kinlaw (Goose Creek, S.C./Goose Creek) and Jake Stickler (Bradenton, Fla./Manatee) have committed to Georgia Tech. Both verbals were reported by multiple outlets.

Kinlaw is a 5-foot-11, 184-pound three-star running back and the cousin of former Georgia Tech quarterback Joe Hamilton.

He picked GT over scholarship offers from Arizona, Clemson, Florida International, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. Kansas State, Nebraska, Vanderbilt and Virginia Tech also recruited him.

Kinlaw registered an electronically-timed 4.75 40-yard dash, 4.41 20-yard shuttle, 32.5-inch vertical, 32.5-foot power throw and 79,35 SPARQ this offseason on the Nike Combine circuit.

Stickler, a 6-foot-5, 281-pound offensive tackle, selected the Yellow Jackets over Missouri.

"They're both good schools, but the curriculum at Georgia Tech is more what I'm looking to study. I'm undecided, but I'm leaning more toward Business right now," he told the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Baylor, Connecticut, Marshall and South Florida were his other scholarship offers. Auburn, Florida, Iowa, Nebraska and North Carolina State expressed interest.

The Yellow Jackets' 2014 class now holds 14 commitments.

Other programs, including Clemson and Miami (Fla.), also recruited the 6-foot-2, 203-pound prospect, who is No. 265 in the ESPN 300.

Pierre displayed impressive athleticism for a quarterback this spring on the Nike combine circuit, posting an electronically-timed 4.82 40-yard dash, 4.50 20-yard shuttle, 34.3-inch vertical, 40-foot power throw and 95.61 SPARQ.

Three-star Jacob Kraut (Neptune Beach, Fla./Fletcher), a linebacker/fullback, committed to Rutgers over the weekend. He spoke with NJ.com about his recent multi-day visit to campus:

"It all stood out to me," he said. "I liked it all a whole lot. I saw the Hale Center, the weight room and a few other things."

The Scarlet Knights topped Florida International, Georgia Southern, Maryland, Middle Tennessee, Troy, UAB, Western Kentucky and Western Michigan, which all offered, for his commitment.

Kraut, a 5-foot-11, 241-pound prospect, registered a 4.66 20-yard shuttle, 26-inch vertical and 37-foot power throw on the Nike combine circuit.

Rutgers has 17 verbals for 2014.

Dominique Brown (Ocala, Fla./ Trinity Catholic) emerged over the summer circuit as a potentially big-time prospect.

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound cornerback camped well just about everywhere he went, including Florida and Florida State.

But his momentum slowed a little during the fall, and only FIU and South Carolina offered. Monday might have got the ball rolling again when Middle Tennessee made it three.
