College Football Analyst Makes Bold Statement About Garrett Greene

While most fans and those within the WVU program believe in Garrett Greene, the perception of him still appears to be all over the place nationally. And even though one major outlet recognized Greene as one of the top 10 quarterbacks in the country, a college football analyst is making a claim to take that evaluation one step further.

Max Chadwick, a college football analyst with PFF, feels Greene is the most underrated college quarterback playing today. “Garrett Greene is the most underrated quarterback in college football entering next year,” said Chadwick directly recently.

This statement by Chadwick comes just a few days after PFF ranked Greene in the No. 7 spot on their list of the top returning quarterbacks. Greene is ranked just one spot lower than Ole Miss’s Jaxson Dart and one spot higher than the quarterback he will face to open the season in a rematch from last year.

Despite coming off a solid 2023 season, Chadwick’s comments and Greene’s inclusion on that list might be a surprise to some when compared to the other names. However, it actually makes perfect sense. PFF actually placed Greene among the highest graded quarterbacks after bowl season in January.

At that time, Greene was on a top 10 list that includes a Heisman winner, quarterbacks who led their team to the College Football Playoff, a Nation Champion and quarterbacks viewed as NFL prospects, and in some cases players who are all of the above. While Greene is not as accomplished as the others, unlike some of his peers, his college career is not over.

Greene is returning to West Virginia to lead the Mountaineers again in 2024. And Greene is so excited about the idea of his team building off a nine-win season, he proclaimed “anybody can call me and I’m not leaving” when asked about his future when the winter Transfer Portal window opened.

Greene credits his time at the Manning Passing Academy for helping to mold him into a more polished quarterback. He even won back-to-back Manning Awards for his play.

WV Sports Now talked with Greene about his experience at the camp and how it will make him a better quarterback.

“It was an unbelievable experience, learning from the Mannings’, learning from the best, being around some of the best quarterbacks in the county. We had 3 or 4 days, a few workouts and it was just awesome to be able to pick the brain of Peyton, Eli and Archie,” said Greene about being around the Manning family.

Throughout the 2023 season, one that did see him miss some time due to injury, Greene passed for 2,178 yards, ran for 708 more and recorded 28 touchdowns with only five turnovers. Greene also threw for 228 yards and a touchdown while adding 64 more yards on the ground in WVU’s Duke’s Mayo Bowl win over North Carolina.
