West Virginia has built a reputation for being “wide receiver university” since head coach Dana Holgorsen took over and the coaching staff hopes that it has found their next star. Thursday Ralph Davis committed and then Nate German was announced as a graduate transfer.
Davis, 6-0, 170 pounds from North Shore (TX), became the second wide receiver commit in a 24-hour span to WVU and has the skill set that Coach Holgorsen and Tyron Carrier like with great speed and above average route running. Davis has the looks to be a mismatch slot receiver in the Mountaineers’ offense.
German, 6-2 205 pounds, is gradate transfer from Rice that came to the school as a high school quarterback from Cypress (TX) but wouldn’t be limited to that position once he arrived on campus. German was the Swiss army knife player that many teams are searching for playing quarterback, running back and wide receiver during his time at Rice. In his final season on campus, German recorded 13 passes and will provide the Mountaineers with experience at their deepest offensive position.
