Brown wouldn’t go into detail on what caused the injury, but did offer that it’s a leg injury. He also wouldn’t explain if Trotter suffered the injury after a tackle.
A four-star recruit out of St. Joe’s Prep in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Trotter was viewed as one of the premier pieces of WVU’s 2023 recruiting class. Listed 6-foot-2, 230-pounds, Trotter officially signed with the Mountaineers back in December.
