WR Bryce Wheaton Signs LOI

Published

West Virginia commit Bryce Wheaton (Holly Springs, NC) has signed his letter of intent. Wheaton is a big-time playmaker and adds another big target for West Virginia quarterbacks with his 6’3”, 191-pound frame. Wheaton missed much of his senior season due to a shoulder injury, but his impact was noticed when he was on the field.

Wheaton is from a WVU-rich family. Both his mother and father graduated from West Virginia and his uncle Garrett Ford played for the Mountaineers back in the day. Wheaton was born and raised in Martinsburg, WV before moving to North Carolina where he developed into one of the states best pass catchers.

I met with Bryce back in September at one of his games and he said he feels there are some things he wants to improve on. “I really want to work on my route running, top-end speed, burst of acceleration, and I think that’s something that Coach Carrier can help me with.” Wheaton showed his interest in wanting to learn from the veteran guys. “I’m looking forward to working with players like Gary Jennings and Reggie Roberson and learning from what they know and teach me how to be the best receiver I can possibly be.”

Expect Wheaton to be able to come in and compete right away for a role in the receivers group. He won’t get a boatload of playing time as a freshman, but if the shoulder does not seem to be a problem, he could be a huge addition to help build the depth.

Wheaton chose the Mountaineers over offers from East Carolina, Louisville, Missouri, Syracuse and Washington State among others. Wheaton will be enrolling in June.
