This past weekend, we took a stand and announced that West Virginia is the new Wide Receiver U. Now, it’s time to simplify the argument and establish the Mountaineers as having the best receiving corps in the Big XII.
There’s an argument you can make for a few teams in the Big XII like Oklahoma State with James Washington and Oklahoma with Marquise Brown and Jordan Smallwood, but when you want to talk about depth and consistent production at the wide receiver position, look no further then WVU.
The Mountaineers were supposed to have a down year at the wideout position (according to some pundits) but David Sills and Gary Jennings break out years have added to the long running reputation of self proclaimed Wide Receiver university. Ka’raun White was really the only returning receiver that held a starting position last year with 583 yards last year respectively.
Marcus Simms has come out of the woodwork to become a deep threat as well. He works very well with 1-on-1 corners and can run with anyone in the country. He’s probably the fastest player on the field for the Mountaineers.
The thing that makes this receiving core so great is that each one of the players have their own piece to the puzzle. Simms and White are the deep threats. Sills is the most productive red zone target in the country and Jennings is the go-to 3rd down possession receiver.
West Virginia fans believe this may be the best receiving group in the country. How can you disagree?
