Skyler Simcox Continues Upward Moves With WVU Transfer
MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – Kicker Skyler Simcox has been the very definition of upwardly mobile during his college career. The Abingdon, Va., native began his post-prep life at Division III Emory & Henry in 2015, where he went 9-11 as a freshman while earning first team all-conference honors. Presented with the chance to earn a scholarship in Division I, he moved on to Western Kentucky, where he was again stellar, making 16 of his 22 attempts in 2016. However, he again decided to make a switch, leaving campus before school began this fall.
Simcox is set to transfer to WVU, where he will enroll in January 2018. This year will be a transfer year for him, and he will have two years of eligibility remaining. He earned a waiver when transferring from E&H to WKU, and did not have to sit out a year when he made that move.
Kicking coach Mike McCabe, who has worked with Simcox, announced the move on Twitter.
