You have no favorite boards.
in the last two years we have had 4 seasons worth of the best WR WVU has ever had stats wise. (Stedman and Austin both years)
Yet we have never found a consistent #3. Woods was alright this year but is also a SR.
Who will step up next year with both of them gone?
Right now the leading returning WRs are:
Jordan Thompson 13 catches for 85 yards
Connor Arlia 4 catches for 39
Dante Campbell 2 catches for 13
KJ Meyers 2 for 9
Freshman? Current Redshirts? JCs? The Transfer Corner from Miami who some have hinted may play WR?
heres a list of receivers that i think have the ablility to step up and become good receivers(of course not all of them are going to step up)
1. devonte robinson
2. devonte mathis
3. will johnson
6. kj myers
wvu recruits commited and not commited
7. jacky marcellus
8 jatavius stewart? should be able to reel him in easy because of tavon austin beastin and tennessee firing dooley.
9. daryl worley or dakiel shorts( depends if any of them play receiver)
10.rodney adams,tj johnson, deontay mcmanus, vince mayle, tyler boyd, javess blue, andre patton, marquion lane etc. the list goes on( of course only if any of them come to wvu)
i think all these players i listed, they are all athletic, talented, and have potential. but some of them wont be at wvu, some of them wont step up. and the players i listed that wvu is recruiting look like some of them can come in and get early playing time(thats why i listed them).
The devonte's will both see the field a good bit next year, and I believe that will Johnson obviously has potential with his size.
As far as recruits go, Deshawn Coleman will see the field somehow with his abilities
I think Devonte Mathis is the next big thing at WR. I know Robinson gets all the love, but I think Mathis will be a major player.
Watch out for Will Johnson next year.
i agree, he has wonderful size and good speed to go along.
