It is a good day for WVU coach Dana Holgorsen and the Mountaineers as Independence Community College star Defensive Lineman Emmit Gooden has narrowed his schools down to three and WVU is one of them, along with Arkansas and Tennessee. Gooden is 6-4 and weighs right around 295 pounds. Gooden is ranked as a 3-star recruit.
Gooden had a total of 81 tackles this season for the Pirates, with 55 of them coming in conference play. He was originally committed to Arkansas but de-committed, after then Coach Bret Bielema was fired in November.
Gooden visited Morgantown last week and was at the WVU Coliseum when the Mountaineers took on Kentucky. Holgorsen also visited Gooden’s mom to try and convince her that Morgantown was the place for her son.
Now the Mountaineers wait to see if Gooden will chose WVU or head to the SEC.
