Steven Simms was the first player Holgorsen mentioned in his press conference. He is the team’s top receiver with some nice statistics to prove his worth.
The junior played in all 12 games last season and even made six starts as a freshman back in 2015. Simms, who bears no relation to WVU wide receiver Marcus Simms, is equally as fast as his Mountaineer counterpart and does possess some big play possibilities.
Simms can be hit over the middle and he can extend the field with his speed. He is of average build at 5-10, 176 pounds, but he is still tough to bring down. As suspect as the Mountaineers secondary as been this season, this could turn into one of Simms’ best games of the season.
Already, Simms has 202 receiving yards on the year despite not playing in Week 2 against Central Michigan. He started off this season with a two-touchdown, 142-yard performance against Southeast Missouri State. He had a long catch of 77 yards in that game.
