Mario Alford and Brandon Golson are West Virginia bound.

The two Georgia junior college teammates signed national letters of intent with the Mountaineers this morning, despite committing to the Wildcats during the season.

Alford, a running back and Golson, a linebacker, opened their recruitment back up when former assistant Tony Gibson left Arizona for West Virginia.

Both were ranked as three-star recruits by Scout.com recruiting service.

The Wildcats have received 15 national letters of intent so far this morning.

They are:

Jack Banda, DE, Loganville, Ga.

T.J. Johnson, WR, Cape Coral, Fla.

Nate Phillips, WR, Chandler

Calvin Allen, DE, Albuquerque, N.M.

Mauriece Lee, WR, Tempe

Paul Elvira, WR, Tempe

Jacob Alsadek, OT, Encinitas, Calif.

Lee Walker, CB, San Diego

Pierre Cormier, RB, San Diego

Zach Green, RB, Ventura, Calif.

David Maka, DT, Tustin, Calif.

Anu Solomon, QB, Las Vegas

Steven Gurrola, C, Phoenix

DeAndre Miller, LB, Buckeye

R.J. Morgan, LB, Central Point, Ore.

Coach Rich Rodriguez and his staff are expected to still add 15-20 more players today. There could be a late addition or two with Alford and Golson flipping for the Mountaineers.
