Four-star DB enjoying WVU

Four-star Pennsylvania cornerback Cullen Christian raved about his official visit to UCLA last weekend and made plenty of comments that had Bruin fans excited.

This weekend the talented prospect is at West Virginia on his second official visit of the recruiting process.

The 6-foot, 180-pound prospect is still at the Big East school, but he spoke briefly with Rivals.com on Sunday and indicated that everything is going well so far.

On Saturday he took in the Mountaineers' thrilling victory over conference rival UConn. West Virginia's 28-24 victory was overshadowed by the tragic death of UConn player Jasper Howard, and there was a moment of silence for Howard at the game.

What has Christian thought of everything at WVU so far?

"The game was cool," he explained. "It was a nice atmosphere. It was kind of loud there and the game was real good. Afterward I just went out with a couple of guys."

How would he compare the trip so far to the one he took out west last week?

"Well, the visit here ain't over yet, but UCLA was totally different," he said. "I got a tour out there and walked around a lot. I went into all the little stores and everything. Both have great campuses and both have been good visits."

In the past Christian has had nice things to say about West Virginia's defensive backs coach David Lockwood. He has had a bit of a chance to interact with the coaches so far, including head coach Bill Stewart.

"Yeah, I talked to him (Stewart)," he said. "He's a cool guy. I was getting ready to talk to him again but he was a little busy. We've been talking a little bit though, and he's a good guy."
