Mountaineers in the Pros
NY Jets Sign Former WVU Receiver George Campbell as UDFA
Former Mountaineer receiver Groege Campbell has signed as an undrafted free agent with the New York Jets.
Campbell spent just one season at West Virginia but made the most of it. On just 19 catches, Campbell racked up 469 receiving yards and scored a team-leading seven touchdowns. Campbell came to Morgantown after an injury-filled three seasons at Florida State.
Coming out of East Lake High School, Campbell was rated as a five-star recruit and the seventh-best prospect in the nation by ESPN. In his freshman season at FSU in 2015, Campbell played 11 games on special teams and caught three passes. Campbell redshirted due to injury in 2016 and played just four games in 2017 before suffering a season-ending injury. In 2018 he played seven games and made four catches.
Campbell came to WVU as a graduate transfer just before the 2019 season. Aside from the production at receiver, Campbell was also a special teams ace for the Mountaineers, having three ST tackles on the year. Campbell was a big-play threat, making catches on the season of 83, 50, 46, 39, 32 and 28 yards.
