WVU Football WR Cortez Braham

Former Mountaineer Cortez Braham finally has a new college home. After departing WVU in the middle of the season and then entering the Transfer Portal during the winter window, Braham has now committed to Nevada.

Braham opened up to WV Sports Now about his West Virginia exit over a month ago.

In an exclusive interview with WV Sports Now, Braham detailed his final conversation with West Virginia head coach Neal Brown and if he holds any animosity towards anyone involved with the Mountaineers.

Cortez Braham Opens Up About WVU Exit, Details Final Conversation with Neal Brown

On what led to his departure, the wide receiver confirmed what most probably expected – it was about playing time. He wanted more of an opportunity to showcase his talents. Braham said he told Brown that he was unhappy with his role and showed his head coach data that argued he wasn’t even getting a chance. He said he pointed out that he was only getting one target in games and that was far less than what he was led to believe would be the case as the lone incumbent among a new group of receivers in 2023.

“He decided to tell me that since I’m making this decision, I don’t have access to the facility anymore and I’ve been off the team since then,” said Braham about what Brown said to him.

Braham did make it clear that if Brown agreed to redshirt him and discuss utilizing him more next season, he would have agreed to stay a Mountaineer.

Unfortunately for the Braham, that did not happen and he says Brown immediately cut off his access to the facility from that day on

Braham was only able to record three receptions for 17 yards in the 2023 season. He caught 14 balls for 147 yards in 2022.
