While West Virginia’s rise to prominence has featured numerous Canadian youth national team players, the Mountaineers will get to call upon a U.S. youth player in 2019.
U.S. U17 WNT forward Gabrielle Robinson recently committed to join the program. The No. 26 player in the 2019 Girls IMG Academy Top 150, Robinson recently took part in the 40-player U17 camp back in May. She was also part of the title-winning squad at the U15 CONCACAF Championship in August 2016.
The Virginia native is slated to join the Washington Spirit VA Academy, which will compete in the Girls Development Academy starting in the fall of 2017.
