The 6-fot-5, 315-pound Brittnum, who played center, guard and tackle for ASA in 2012, made an official visit to West Virginia this weekend.
The only other player making an official visit was Copiah-Lincoln (Miss.) Community College offensive lineman Stone Underwood, and he left campus with an offer.
"The West Virginia coaches called me about an hour ago and they said (Underwood) got an offer, but if he decides not to go, I would get an offer," Brittnum said. "At least they were honest and you know where you stand.
"If they decide to go with me, I can go (enroll) now. I am trying to stay positive and keep my head up."
Brittnum said he was also talking with Purdue, but the coaching change ended that recruitment. Youngstown State was showing interest, but the Penguins want a tackle and viewed Brittnum as an interior offensive lineman.
"I had a good season," he said. "We're a running team and I pulled a lot, and that's all we did. We passed the ball a little bit and I didn't give up a sack all year. I know how to pass block but the main thing we did was the run."
Brittnum travelled by himself to Morgantown, W.V., for his visit and arrived Friday in the early afternoon.
"We went straight to a resturant and ate dinner with the offensive line coach, my recruiting coach and the offensive coordinator," Brittnum said. "And (offensive tackle) Quinton Spain, who hosted me, was there. We just asked a few questions and then after that we went to his apartment and hung out."
Saturday included the usual tours and presentations around the campus.
"We ate breakfast at the hotel and they took on us on a tour of school, and after that we went to the basketball game," Brittnum said. "After the game, they dropped us off at the hotel for a few hours. Then picked us up and we went to Buffalo Wild Wings with all the coaches, but we got ours to go and Quinton Spain took me and (Underwood) and we kicked it with other players again, and Sunday we got up and they brought us to school and we met with the coaches."
