West Virginia junior WR David Sills caught six passes for 89 yard and three touchdowns in Saturday's 46-35 victory over Texas Tech.

Sills (6'4/203) now has multiple touchdown catches in five of six games this year. One of the nation's breakout starts of 2017, Sills now boasts a 39-601-12 line with half the regular season left to play.

West Virginia redshirt senior WR Ka'Raun White caught eight passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 46-35 win over Texas Tech.

White took a backseat to David Sills in the first four games. Over the past two, where White has posted a combined 14-252-3 line, he's emerged as a second legitimately terrifying aerial weapon for the Mountaineers.
Oct 14 - 4:01 PM

West Virginia redshirt junior QB Will Grier completed 32-of-41 passes for 352 yards, five touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 46-35 win over Texas Tech.

With nothing doing in the running game, West Virginia needed two-and-a-half quarters to figure out how to move the ball against Texas Tech. Once they did, Grier and crew rolled, ending the game on a 29-0 run. Grier (6'2/215) is enjoying an incredible start to his Mountaineers career. He's thrown for over 300 yards in all six games, thrown at least two touchdowns in all six games, and thrown three or more in five. Grier is proving to be one of the nation's elite quarterbacks.

West Virginia redshirt junior QB Will Grier has the highest big-time throw percentage of the top 13 draft-eligible quarterbacks according to Pro Football Focus.

According to PPF, Grier (6'2/215) has made a big-time throw -- the highest graded throws possible -- on 8.9 percent of his passes. Grier also ranks near the top in overall grades with a score of 90.9. To say that he's proven worth the hype after having to sit out 2016 is an understatement. Look for him to improve these numbers against Texas Tech on Saturday.
Oct 13 - 12:30 AM

West Virginia junior WR David Sills has four straight games of at least 100 receiving yards.

Sills is a converted quarterback who transferred from the JUCO ranks but is now dominating at receiver while posting a whopping nine touchdowns. He's only a junior, so his NFL future might be on hold, but Dana Holgorsen apparently recruited Sills by selling him on a future professional career at receiver.

West Virginia redshirt senior WR Ka'Raun White caught six passes for 138 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's loss to TCU.

White showed a fantastic sense of balance while hauling in a 76-yard scoring pass near the end of the third quarter, keeping upright after an attempted arm tackle before staggering his way back to full speed. This was the 6-foot-1, 200-pounder's first 100-yard receiving showing of the season and just his second game of more than 50 yards this year.
Oct 7 - 8:33 PM

West Virginia redshirt junior QB Will Grier completed 25-of-45 passes for 366 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 31-24 loss to TCU.

Grier is a stat machine, but West Virginia's offense on the whole was somewhat hot-and-cold on Saturday -- especially in the first half. The Mountaineers managed just a field goal through the first two quarters before finally sparking to life after halftime. For the season, Grier has now passed for 1,740 yards with a 16/4 TD/INT ratio across five games played.

It took Grier a little while to settle in this afternoon, but once he did, he took advantage of a weak Kansas secondary. It's been a successful transition for the Florida transfer. Through four games at his new school, he's logged a 13/3 TD/INT ratio on around 65-percent completions while exceeding 300 yards passing in each contest.
Sep 23 - 4:00 PM

West Virginia junior WR David Sills caught eight passes for 130 yard and two touchdowns in Saturday's 56-34 victory over Kansas.

The renaissance continues. Sills (6'4/203), a former ballyhooed quarterback recruit, has in short order become QB Will Grier's favorite target. He's proven to be both efficient and explosive. Sills boasts a 26-396-7 line through four games.
Sep 23 - 3:55 PM

Sep 16 - 4:09 PM
