Mountaineers add Greaves, Carswell
West Virginia rounded out its productive weekend on the trail with commitments from four-star safety Malik Greaves (Jacksonville, Fla./Sandalwood) and juco receiver Ronald Carswell (Macon, Ga./Itawamba CC), according to multiple sources.
Greaves first committed to Vanderbilt in February before going back on the market in October. He also holds scholarship offers from Auburn, Duke, North Carolina, South Florida, Southern Miss, Virginia and Wisconsin.
ESPN calls him, "a punishing, run-support defender with the athleticism and playing speed needed to play both zone and man coverage."
Carswell originally signed with Alabama in 2010 as a high three-star prospect out of Westside High School (Macon, Ga.). At that time, ESPN wrote of him, "This guy is a very good football player and has real upside as a route-runner and vertical threat."
He resigned with the Tide in 2011 before heading to Itawamba CC. Baylor, Kentucky, Ole Miss, Texas A&M and Texas Tech also recruited him during this cycle.
Juco safety Terrell Pinson (Tupelo, Miss./Butler CC), who decommitted from South Alabama, and 2014 wide receiver Ricky Rogers (Monroeville, Pa./Gateway) also announced for the Mountaineers over the weekend.
