One position group WVU head coach Neal Brown wanted to add to in the summer months was cornerback. After losing starters Daryl Porter Jr. and Nicktroy Fortune to the transfer portal, the need became evident. 

Over the weekend, the Mountaineers picked up a commitment from Colorado State transfer Rashad Ajayi and now, are hoping to beat out Big 12 foe, TCU, for Jaylon Shelton (6'2", 190 lbs) of Tyler Junior College. 

"I was extremely excited when I found out I received a full ride to West Virginia University because that was my first Big 12 offer and I’ve always dreamed of playing in the Big 12," Shelton told Mountaineers Now. "I think there's a lot of positivity surround the program, especially with the amazing facilities and coaching staff."

Shelton has been holding most of his conversations with co-defensive coordinator ShaDon Brown, someone he's developed a close-knit relationship with. "I love the way he runs the defense and I feel like he is a genuinely good guy."

After visiting WVU, Shelton revealed that he will be announcing his decision at 4 p.m. EST on Tuesday.
