Now that we’ve covered QB’s and RB’s, it’s time to take a quick look at the West Virginia Mountaineers wide receivers since we’ve reached the mid-point of the season. The guy pretty much running the show at wide receiver is Ronald Carswell. He’s got 330 receiving yards with 16 receptions so far. He also has an uncanny ability to make it down-field and come through with some big plays.
Right behind him in line is true freshman Daikiel Shorts. Shorts can handle the slot position with great ease, all things considered. Wide receiver Kevin White is taking his slow, sweet time reaching his full potential for WVU even though he did have a great game versus Baylor with 130 receiving yards. While these wide receivers have held a steady, consistent game level so far they are only as good as their QB’s.
This gives them the same grade as the Mountaineers QB’s: C.
