More Subtractions From Mountaineer Football

Last night WVU lost offensive lineman Tyler Tezeno as he announced he would transfer to Sam Houston State and today two more Mountaineers are leaving the program. Senior cornerback Jaylon Myers and sophomore safety Malik Greaves have both left the program to pursue other opportunities.

Myers was part of the 2014 class as a JUCO cornerback and was expected to provide much needed depth for the WVU defense. Myers was one of the top JUCO defensive backs available in that class but never could rise on the depth chart to make the impact many thought he would.

Greaves was part of the 2013 class from Jacksonville and was a rising prospect when he committed to WVU. His speed and his size made him an intriguing option for the Mountaineers but the potential just didn’t turn into the production the Mountaineers were hoping for, as injuries last season affected Greaves.

Also leaving the program are two walk-ons from last season, linebacker Hunter Brown and quarterback Storm McPherson. McPherson, redshirt sophomore, is from Princeton High School (WV) and will probably stay in state to play college football.
