Noel Devine is highly regarded as one of the top, if not the top running back recruit for the 2007 class. If you recall back in February, the day before signing day Noel Devine shocked some in the recruiting world saying he would attend West Virginia University. He picked WVU over Florida State, but even then most thought that Devine would need a year a prep school before actually enrolling. Well National LOI day came and we waited for Devine to sign his LOI...and waited...and waited...
Then came a statement by Noel Devine's
guidance counselor "Neon" Deion Sanders that he talked to Devine and after a long converstaion with the former FSU star, Devine decided to wait and think about his decision. Most thought with that news Devine was eventually headed to Tallahassee to play for Bobby Bowden.
Over a month and a half has passed since Signing Day and Noel Devine has finally signed his LOI...for West Virginia. His academic eligiblity for this fall is still under question but Devine has been working hard and is awaiting a new set of test scores. But for now Mountaineer fans can claim a big victory over their former coach Bobby Bowden.
