EA Sports announced the game series would return on Feb. 15 and then added that more info would be unveiled heading into the summer on Feb. 15. WVU quarterback Garrett Greene was part of the initial wave of players to unveil that he will be part of the game and now his star running back will join him.

EA Sports has teased the return of the beloved video game for the last few years. EA hasn’t released a college football video since since NCAA Football 14, which was released in July 2013. Things will get interesting to see how EA presents the game. A lot has changed in the college athletics landscape since 2013, like the transfer portal, conference realignment and NIL.

Name, Image and Likeness will be a factor in the game as student-athletes have the opportunity to market themselves in the game. NIL has also been a hurdle for EA as the players have went back-and-forth on what they want for being in the game. Student-athletes that opt-in are expected to receive $600 and a cope of the video game.
