Last recruiting season, WVU received a commitment from a 4 star, 208 pound 6'1" running back from Frederick, MD - Terrence Kerns. I believe we mentioned him once or twice. Several weeks later, Noel Devine signed with WVU and, well, we all know how that's going.
We've seen Devine and another true freshman, Jock Sanders, share some second half time. Now that Devine is becoming a bigger part of the first string, I would expect to start seeing Jock Sanders on clean up duty in the fourth quarter. But what happened to this four star guy Kerns? I haven't seen him on the field yet.
Well, there ended up being some injury and academic issues and Kerns is taking the academy route. He is currently playing ball at Chatham Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia. Since the spring, Kerns has rehabbed and hit the weights. He has put on 10 or so pounds (listed at 215) and ranked by Rivals as the 20th best prep school player in the nation. So what does he think now that WVU already has its "future back"?
That's gonna work out fine. One two punch. Plus, they like to run the double man back there - it'd be me and Noel back in the backfield just handling business. I like that.Yes, Terrance, we like that, too. Think Ronnie Brown/Cadillac William circa 2004.
