Receiver Heastie enrolls at WVU

MORGANTOWN — A second midyear football recruit has enrolled at West Virginia for the spring semester, coach Bill Stewart announced Thursday.

He is Logan Heastie, a 6-foot-3, 192-pound wide receiver. He graduated in December from Great Bridge High School in Chesapeake, Va.

Heastie will be eligible to join the squad for winter workouts and spring practice.

The outstanding youngster also reportedly was recruited by Virginia Tech, Penn State, Florida, Alabama, Oregon, Boston College, Tennessee, North Carolina and North Carolina State.

Several national publications and recruiting services rated him one of the top wide receiver prospects in the country. He played in the ESPN Under Amour All-America Game in Orlando, Fla., on Jan. 4.

USA Today named Heastie to its All-America prep second team as the only selection from Virginia.

Last fall he caught 58 passes for 886 yards and nine touchdowns. As a junior, he had 58 receptions for 1,068 yards and 17 touchdowns — an average of 21.4 yards per catch.

Heastie runs a 4.3-second 40-yard dash and has a 34-inch vertical jump.

The Richmond Times Dispatch named him to the Group AAA All-State second team. The Roanoke (Va.) Times had him No. 10 on a list of the state’s Top 25 players.

He made the All-Southeastern District first team, the All-Tidewater first team by Newport News Daily Press and All-Gridiron first team.

Chris Palmer, a 6-foot-4, 290-pound standout lineman who played at St. John Neumann High in Philadelphia, was announced as a midyear addition earlier this week.
