Former WVU WR Kaden Prather Commits to Transfer to Maryland
Former West Virginia wide receiver Kaden Prather has made his decision on his next college home.
Prather, from Montgomery Village, Maryland, will return home and play for Maryland. He becomes a nice addition to a Terps team that just completed an eight-win season, winning the Duke’s Mayo Bowl. He tweeted the news Wednesday afternoon after announcing he was transferring from WVU several weeks ago.

Prather emerged as a reliable weapon in the passing game during the 2022 season. He made 52 receptions for 501 yards with three touchdowns. This comes after recording only 12 catches for 175 yards during his freshman season in 2021.
The loss of Prather serves as a big hit to depth at the receiver position moving forward, especially since Prather was likely going to be relied on to be the new number one option with both Bryce Ford-Wheaton and Sam James deciding to forgo the rest of their eligibility and declare for the NFL Draft.
