Evidence continues to build that West Virginia football may have one of the best quarterbacks in both the Big 12 and college football as a whole leading their team this fall.

WVU senior Garrett Greene, who was last season's starter for WVU and seems poised to earn the job again, spent time in Louisiana at the 2024 Manning Passing Academy this week as a mentor and coach for the younger high school athletes in attendance. But during a select number of drills and competition for the college quarterbacks serving at the camp, Greene was listed by national media outlet On3 as a top performer.

"When the quarterbacks chatted about who flashed during the event, one name that continued to come up with Greene," read the On3 report. "And for good reason. The West Virginia starter had a nice throwing session, working the intermediate and deep game well relative to the 40-plus quarterbacks who competed in the event. Green made his case for one of the best Big 12 quarterbacks at the event."

Greene joined Baylor quarterback Dequan Finn -- who transferred in this offseason from Toledo -- as one of just two Big 12 quarterbacks listed in the article of quarterbacks who flashed at the event, and the duo were surrounded on the list by some of the most highly-regarded quarterbacks this upcoming season. Others named were Carson Beck (Georgia), Quinn Ewers (Texas), Dillon Gabriel (Oregon), Jackson Arnold (Oklahoma), and Jaxson Dart (Ole Miss).
