Next Level Nation to Invade WVU

This coming weekend will bring dozens of prospects to Morgantown as teams compete in the annual 7-on-7 tournament at Mountaineer Field. A familiar group - both to the campus and to the fans - will be returning to West Virginia today in the form of Next Level Nation.

Kennedy Frazier will be one of several D-1 caliber players in attendance this weekend.

Next Level Nation, or NLN, is known primarily through the state of Maryland as an organization that helps bring together young men and afford them the opportunity to receive training and instruction that they otherwise would miss out on. Their results have been wildly successful over the years, placing several players at various college programs throughout the country.

Today, the group will make the short drive over to Morgantown to compete for the 7-on-7 championship against some of the top teams within driving distance of Touchdown City. And with that comes a whole host of names that should intrigue Mountaineer fans.

In the 2013 class, defensive backs Kennedy Frazier and Delando Johnson are joined by wide receiver Kyle Levere.

For 2014, running back Russell Neverdon and quarterback Colar Kuhns lead the way. Even going as young as the 2016 class - Rashuan Smith, the rising freshman who already holds a Boston College offer, will be there.
