Three-Star OL Cooper Young Commits to West Virginia

NCAA Football: Kansas State at West Virginia

The West Virginia Mountaineers got some good news on the recruiting trail over the weekend as they picked up a commitment from 2023 interior offensive lineman Cooper Young.

Young, a three-star recruit from Downingtown, Pennsylvania, is one of the top players from the state of Pennsylvania in the 2023 class and has great intangibles, with a 6-5, 280-pound frame coming out of high school.

Young chose West Virginia over several other Division I offers, including Maryland, Pittsburgh, Temple, and Virginia.


The Mountaineers newest addition committed on Sunday morning, using a Twitter post to announce his decision on where he would spend the next four years.

With Young’s commitment, the Mountaineers now have nine commitments in their 2023 class, which now ranks 19th, according to Rivals.

That gives West Virginia the fourth-best 2023 class in the Big 12 at this point, behind Texas Tech (2), Baylor (13), and TCU (17). There is still a long way to go in this recruiting cycle and a lot of things will likely change before we cross the finish line, but the Mountaineers have set themselves up nicely to make a run at a Top 25 class in 2023.
