Doug Nester Announces Return to WVU with ‘I’m Back’ Message



Doug Nester

“I’m back.” That’s all West Virginia offensive lineman Doug Nester had to add to a graphic to make his message loud and clear.

Nester ended any speculation and let Mountaineer Nation know he will be returning to WVU next season. The Kenova, West Virginia native has been with WVU since 2021 after transferring from Virginia Tech, where he previously played two seasons.

He has an extra year of eligibility due to the 2020 season being impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Nester has appeared in 32 college games, making 30 starts.

Keeping Nester retains some experience on an offensive line that will be dealing with inexperience at the quarterback position, regardless if it’s Garrett Greene or Nicco Marchiol as the stater.
