West Virginia reinstated suspended sophomore RB Kennedy McKoy.

McKoy (6'1/198) sat out against Delaware State on Saturday as punishment for a violation of team rules. He and Martell Pettaway will serve as backups for Justin Crawford when the Mountaineers play Kansas on Saturday.
Sep 20 - 6:49 PM

West Virginia junior WR Gary Jennings caught six passes for 128 yards in the school's 59-16 win over Delaware State.

Jennings was the school's leading receiver in this contest and has now crossed the 125 receiving yard mark in two of three games this season. He is both a big play threat and short to intermediate target.
Sep 16 - 4:09 PM

West Virginia senior RB Justin Crawford carried the ball 15 times for 102 yards and three touchdowns in the school's 59-16 win over Delaware State.

This means Crawford found the endzone five times in his last two games, plus he's eclipsed the century mark in three straight games. Crawford is emerging as a vital part of West Virginia's offense.
Sep 16 - 3:56 PM

West Virginia redshirt junior QB Will Grier completed 19 of 27 attempts for 304 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the school's 59-16 win over Delaware State on Saturday.

This was an easy one for the Mountaineers against a now 0-3 Delaware State team. Grier completed passes that went for 28 yards, 48 yards and 62 yards in the game. His backup even got into the game and threw a touchdown. WVU faces Kansas next.
Sep 16 - 3:47 PM

West Virginia senior RB Justin Crawford rushed for 118 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 56-20 victory over East Carolina.

Crawford has surpassed 100 yards in each of the first two weeks, and he only needed 28 carries total to get it done. With Delaware State on deck, he's just getting started with the explosive plays.
Sep 9 - 5:03 PM

West Virginia junior WR David Sills caught seven passes for 153 yard and three touchdowns in Saturday's 56-20 victory over East Carolina.

Sills (6'4/203) used to be famous for being the seventh grader who verbally committed to Lane Kiffin and USC. That was when he was teenaged quarterback. Now he's a physical, reliable wide receiver on the outside who's opening to the year reminds of what Chad Hansen was doing at Cal early last season. Sills has a 16-247-5 line through two games.
Sep 9 - 4:59 PM

West Virginia redshirt junior QB Will Grier completed 19-of-25 passes for 352 yards and five touchdowns in a 56-20 victory over East Carolina on Saturday.

Grier threw for four of those touchdowns in the first half in leading West Virginia to a 49-3 lead. He already looks like a grizzled Mountaineer veteran, finding seven different receivers in only his second start for WVU. Grier has averaged 361.5 passing yards per game with an 8/1 TD/INT rate over the first two games.
Sep 9 - 4:52 PM

West Virginia reinstated sophomore WR Marcus Simms following his one-game suspension for the opener against Virginia Tech on Sunday.

Simms was suspended for Sunday's eventual loss as punishment for his arrest on charges of DUI and driving on a revoked license in mid-August after he was initially pulled over for a broken taillight. Simms (6'0/196) caught six passes for 95 yards and a touchdown as a true freshman last season. West Virginia tangoes with ECU on Saturday.
Sep 5 - 4:58 PM

West Virginia senior RB Justin Crawford rushed for 106 yards on 13 carries in Sunday's 31-24 loss to Virginia Tech.

A fine, if mostly uneventful, showing for Crawford. Outside of a 42-yard run, he was more or less held in check. The 5-foot-11, 198-pounder rushed for 1,184 yards (7.3 YPC) and four touchdowns last season. He wasn't the most consistent of backs during the 2016 campaign, but had several huge games to help buoy his overall numbers. West Virginia has a date with ECU next weekend.
Sep 4 - 12:46 AM

West Virginia redshirt junior QB Will Grier completed 31-of-53 passes for 371 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 31-24 loss to Virginia Tech.

This was Grier's first game since October, 2015, as he was suspended for the back half of that campaign with Florida due to a positive PED test. He then transferred to the Mountaineers and sat out the past campaign to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations. Despite the long, long layoff, early returns -- in a relatively inefficient performance -- are that he's a nice fit with HC Dana Holgorsen's Air Raid. He'll put up numbers this year. West Virginia will host ECU next weekend in what should be a considerably easier affair than Sunday night's battle with the Hokies.
Sep 4 - 12:39 AM

West Virginia redshirt senior WR Ka'Raun White (leg) is expected to be a starter in Sunday's opener against Virginia Tech.

White sustained a broken leg against Iowa State last November, an injury which required surgery. He made steady progress on the health front over the offseason. Given the horribly thin nature of West Virginia's receiving corp, his readiness for the opener should be a huge boost for the Mountaineers.
Sep 2 - 4:25 PM

West Virginia sophomore WR Marcus Simms had his May DUI charge dropped.

Simms' charge from May has been dropped, but he remains suspended for Sunday's opener against Virginia Tech due to a second, still-pending DUI charge stemming from an incident earlier in August. Because that first charge has been expunged, the second DUI charge will be treated as a first-time offense.
Aug 31 - 3:09 PM

West Virginia suspended sophomore WR Marcus Simms for the season-opener against Virginia Tech.

"While every case is unique and discipline imposed is based on varying factors, this suspension is warranted," said HC Dana Holgorsen. "It is my hope that Marcus works hard to fulfill his obligation as a member of our community and as a member of our football program." Simms (6'0/196) was arrested on charges of DUI and driving on a revoked license early Sunday morning after being initially pulled over for a broken taillight. He was expected to take on a bigger role in the offense this season after logging a 6-95-1 receiving line as a true freshman. West Virginia is looking mighty thin at receiver at this juncture.
Aug 15 - 12:25 PM

West Virginia redshirt sophomore T Colton McKivitz could have a big season on the right side.

McKivitz stepped in for Yodny Cajuste and immediately faced future first round pick Charles Harris. He locked down the starting job from then on. The Mountaineers lost Tyler Orlosky to the NFL along with two others. McKivitz could be the top dog this year.
Aug 14 - 9:45 AM

West Virginia sophomore WR Marcus Simms was arrested on Sunday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence and driving on a revoked license.

Simms was pulled over for a broken taillight, after which police caught a whiff of marijuana and noticed marijuana cigarettes in the ashtray. The 6-foot, 196-pound sophomore reportedly showed signs of glassy, bloodshot eyes and was slurring his speech. West Virginia has yet to comment on the arrest or move to suspend Simms, but given that this is his second DUI in the space of four months -- he was previously arrested in May -- he might be facing an in-season suspension. Playing as a true freshman last season, Simms caught six passes for 95 yards and a touchdown. Simms was looking like a prime contender to start prior to this arrest and given that Jovon Durante has not yet even arrived in camp due to a personal matter, the Mountaineers' receiving corps is in a tenuous state at this time.
