Salpointe Catholic's football team already has five seniors verbally committed to continue their careers four-year schools.

Star quarterback Andrew Cota could soon be the sixth.

The 6-foot-1-inch 190-pound senior will go on an official visit to West Virginia University on Friday according to Salpointe coach Dennis Bene. The Mountaneers have not formally offered Cota but may do so during or after his visit.

Cota was a four-year varsity starter and spent the last three seasons with Salpointe.

He capped off his stellar career by throwing for 2,748 yards and 35 touchdowns with just two interceptions last fall as the Lancers went 14-0 and captured the Division II state championship. Cota also ran for 657 yards and 15 scores.

Cota also has offers from Adams State and Colorado Mesa but those are both Division II programs so West Virginia would be his first Division I offer. The Mountaineers went 4-8 last fall and finished seventh in the Big 12.
