West Virginia announced today that defensive lineman Chris Palmer has enrolled in school and will be available for spring practice.

Palmer, a 6-foot-4, 290-pounder from Philadelphia, originally signed with the Mountaineers last February but delayed his enrollment because of a shoulder injury. He played both offense and defense in high school but is projected as a defensive tackle for West Virginia. He was rated as the 73rd-best defensive tackle in the 2008 class by Scouts, Inc.

Meanwhile, Pittsburgh landed two high school commitments on Sunday in dual-threat quarterback Kolby Gray from Houston and New Jersey defensive back Jason Hendricks. Gray is rated as the No. 51 quarterback by Scouts, Inc.

The 6-foot-1, 167-pound Hendricks fits Dave Wannstedt's mold of athletic, fast players who are a little undersized.
