With six written scholarship offers, Farrell, Pa., lineman Robert Trudo came into this weekend looking for one more. And after his visit to Morgantown for the WVU-Maryland game, he got it. With family alongside, Trudo watched the No. 21 ranked Mountaineers dismantle Maryland in front of a packed house of rowdy fans before picking up a scholarship offer from the Mountaineers.
“That was an impressive win. I’ve never seen anything like that before,” said Trudo, a 270-pound offensive guard prospect, told EerSports.com recruiting analyst Anthony Krumpach.
The game wasn't the only thing that impressed Trudo, who commented repeatedly on how nice the facilities are and how well they measure against other facilities that he had seen to this point.
“Many people just want to tell you, yeah, those are great facilities or they have some of the best weight rooms in the country. West Virginia really does have the best facilities I have seen,” said Trudo.
Up until a few days ago Trudo was mulling a top three, which tentatively consisted of Cincinnati, Boston College and Syracuse. With his newest offer, though, things have changed.
“Right now I’d say the teams I am looking at the hardest are WVU, Syracuse and Boston College,” said Trudo
Trudo had one more visit scheduled, Oct. 9 to see Syracuse. That trip has since been pushed back to the 15th.
