3 West Virginia receivers could record 1,000-yard seasons

West Virginia’s offense has been one of the best in the nation with quarterback Will Grier at the helm for the Mountaineers. Grier has passed for more than 3,000 yards and sits at 30 touchdown passes on the season.

West Virginia’s wide receivers have padded their stats in the process. Three are on pace to boast some extremely impressive numbers when the regular season concludes at Oklahoma on Nov. 25.

Gary Jennings, David Sills V, and Ka’Raun White are all on track to top or come within several yards of a 1,000 receiving-yard season in 2017.

Jennings — a junior from Stafford, Va., — has only recorded one touchdown catch this season but has brought in a team-high 69 catches and 823 receiving yards. He has averaged 11.9 yards per catch.

Sills has by far been the most productive receiver for the Mountaineers in 2017. Though he sits second in receiving yards at 793, Sills has recorded 16 touchdown catches this year. It’s the most of any receiver in the nation by four touchdowns.

White has made 43 catches for 739 yards with 8 touchdowns, but leads the trio of receivers at an average of 17.2 yards per catch. Only Marcus Simms has a better mark among all Mountaineers, averaging 19.2 yards per catch.

With two losses in Big 12 play, West Virginia’s Big 12 title hopes are hanging on for dear life, but aren’t dead just yet. If the Mountaineers are to find their way into playing at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Dec. 2 — Grier and the receiving corps will need to keep up the production as they have all season — and hope for a little chaos outside of Morgantown to help them.
