As Wyatt Milum prepares to step up into a bigger role as a leader of the WVU offensive line, he’s receiving national recognition. Milum has been named to the Walter Camp preseason All-American team.

This honor comes after Milum was placed on preseason All-American teams by Athlon Sports and Lindy’s Sports.

After being such a strength in 2023, the offensive line is now one of the biggest question marks looming over WVU in 2024. It’s only natural for people to be unsure how a unit that lost multiple players to the NFL will perform, but players like Milum are why there’s plenty of hope for the offensive line to drive the West Virginia offense once again.

With Zach Frazier and Doug Nester embarking on their professional careers, Milum, a senior and West Virginia native, is among those next in line to be a leader of the group. And one national outlet that evaluates individual players believes Milum will step up and deliver.

In fact, PFF believes Milum right near the top of the best returning offensive tackles in the Big 12. They actually have the WVU senior ranked less than a full point behind the No. 1 player.

Milum holds a grade of 80.1 right behind Iowa State’s Jalen Travis at 80.7.

So even though it will be difficult to fill the void left Frazier and Nester, it’s possible the Mountaineers will still experience a West Virginia native anchoring and leading the offensive line.

WVU recruited Milum as a consensus four-star prospect out of Spring Valley High School in Kenova, W.Va. as part of their 2022 class.
