The big play also triggered a Twitter reaction with people praising WVU’s top receiver as being one of the best in the country and maybe even having NFL potential.
Bryce Ford-Wheaton might be the best receiver in the country not enough people are talking about.

M.J. Devonshire is on 'he's him' watch. He hasn't played chumps. Bryce Ford-Wheaton and Cedric Tillman have next level potential. This guy looks legit.

Bryce Ford-Wheaton has been awesome through a game and a half. Getting J.T. Daniels has made him look like an early breakout candidate for the Biletnikoff.
