Freeport linebacker gets WVU offer

Out of the dozens of football players at West Virginia's prospect camp Saturday, Freeport linebacker Logan Thimons came away with the MVP honor. Yet the 6-foot-1, 210-pound Thimons still hadn't anticipated what followed moments after he garnered the recognition. Thimons, who will be a junior this fall, received his first Division I scholarship offer, as Mountaineers defensive assistants Tom Bradley and Tony Gibson approached with the good news.

“I've always loved WVU since I was growing up, so to get an offer from them was such an exciting moment,” Thimons said.

Thimons made a team-high 97 tackles as a sophomore. He hit the recruiting trail hard this summer, visiting camps at West Virginia, Pitt, Penn State, Ohio State, Akron, Toledo and Lehigh.
