West Virginia just landed a commitment from four-star Brandon Rehmann. The receiver comes from Philadelphia (Pa.) St. Joseph’s, a familiar school for Mountaineer fans. Rehmann was in Morgantown earlier this month for his official visit and that experience with the coaches was key in his decision making process.
IN HIS OWN WORDS
“The coaching staff played a big role in this,” Rehmann said. “When I went down there I felt at home. I really vibe with the coaches. They really understand me and I understand where they’re trying to get me.
“I was able to just be myself there,” he said. “I didn’t have to act too professional. They allowed me to be myself. It was very diverse there and the scenery was amazing.
“Josiah (Trotter), James (Heard), Wink (Richard James), and a couple others were trying to push me to go there,” said Rehmann. “I absolutely want Samaj (Jones) to come. I always wanted to play with my quarterback from high school. Just like Kyle (McCord) and Marvin (Harrison Jr.) at Ohio State, I think we carry this on to West Virginia and really make a big impact.”
Rehmann is a solidly built receiver with good size and a physical style. He has strong hands and is able to win in jump ball scenarios on a consistent basis. Rehmann has no problem fighting through contact to make contested catches either. As a route runner, Rehmann can create separation thanks to crisp cuts and quarterbacks like throwing his way because he has a large catch radius. On the field, look for Rehmann to be an asset on the recruiting trail. He is close with a few top West Virginia targets and he’s already started recruiting them.
