Liberty picked up its 6th football commit for the class of 2018 on Wednesday afternoon when running back Uriah West pledged to the Flames, according to his twitter account.
West is a 6’0″, 205 pound prospect from Douglasville, Georgia and Douglas County High School. He had offers from Ball State, Bowling Green, Toledo, and Troy. He was one of the first prospects in this class Liberty’s coaching staff sought, offering him in January, prior to the announced FBS move in February.
As a junior, West rushed for 913 yards and 11 touchdowns on 94 carries. He also caught 10 passes for 171 yards.
Uriah West joins fellow 2018 commitments in wide receivers Sean Queen and JT Wood, tight end Mason Yost, defensive lineman Emmanuel Cater, and defensive back Marcellous Harris.
