WVU HC Neal Brown Clears Up Speculation Concerning WR Kaden Prather’s Absence



MORGANTOWN, W.Va – There were two stories that hit the news right before the Mountaineers were about to take the field against Kansas State. Cornerback Charles Woods deciding to leave the program was cut and dry, but wide receiver Kaden Prather not dressing for the game left people to wonder what caused his late scratch from the lineup.

Immediately after making his thoughts on Woods transferring known, WVU head coach Neal Brown cleared up the confusion surrounding Prather. Brown said that Prather was out with an injury. He mentioned he suffered the undisclosed injury towards the end of the win over Oklahoma. This put to rest speculation that Prather’s absence was due to a hidden intention to exit the program.
