West Virginia has secured a pledge from Marvin Gross (Baltimore/Dunbar), a three-star defensive end, multiple sources report. Mountaineers receivers/special teams coach Daron Roberts recruited Gross.
Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Northern Illinois, Purdue, Rutgers, UTEP, Wake Forest and Washington also extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot-3, 215-pound senior. Maryland, North Carolina State, Virginia and Virginia Tech showed interest.
ESPN calls Gross "an excitable player who needs to be careful with his post-play emotions. A bit raw in areas and needs to keep trying to filling out his frame, but he has some tools to work with as well as a physical and active style."
West Virginia has 19 verbals for 2013.
