\n
Defensive end Tyree Owens (Oviedo, Fla./Oviedo) and pair of offensive tackles -- Jamie Herr (Elkton, Md./Eastern Christian) and Walter Rauterkus (Avon, Ohio/Avon) -- each committed this week to West Virginia, according to multiple reports.\n
\n
Owens, a 6-foot-4, 236-pound prospect, selected the Mountaineers over scholarship offers from Boston College, Cincinnati, Duke, Eastern Illinois, Florida International, Florida Atlantic, Georgia Tech, Iowa State, Marshall, Minnesota, North Carolina State, Troy, Virginia, Wake Forest and Wisconsin.\n
\n
He posted an electronically-timed 4.88 40-yard dash, 4.62 20-yard shuttle, 32.5-inch vertical, 34-foot power throw and 81.78 SPARQ this spring at a Nike combine.\n
\n
\"West Virginia had the best family feel,\" Owens told the Orlando Sentinel. \"When I got there (on a visit this past weekend) they welcomed me with open arms and it was everything I could have hoped for... just great the whole time I was there.\"\n
\n
Herr, one of many FBS prospects from Eastern Christian Academy, was also offered by Boston College, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Pittsburgh, Rutgers and Temple. He's 6-5 and 265 pounds.\n
\n
Ohio was Rauterkus' only other scholarship offer. Programs including Ball State, Bowling Green, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan State, Nebraska and Purdue also recruited the 6-6, 285-pound prospect.\n
\n
West Virginia's 2014 class is at 11 players.","title" :"West Virginia lands three prospects -- Owens, Herr, Rauterkus","byline" :"RecruitingNation","linkText" :"West Virginia lands three
