Joel Klatt’s Thoughts On WVU’s 2018 Football Prospects
Fox football analyst Joel Klatt says what a lot of Mountaineer fans are thinking, and pinpoints a best-case scenario for the Mountaineers in the first two-thirds of the 2018 football season.
“Dana Holgorsen’s done a really solid job. Not many people give him the credit he probably deserves, but he deserves a lot for what he has done at West Virginia.
“Will Grier could put up Mason Rudolph-style numbers. It’s the same offense remember, because Holgorsen comes from that Oklahoma State, Mike Gundy type of tree, Mike Leach type of tree. They’ve got great wide receivers at West Virginia. They might be, as far as the tandem goes, the two best in the country – David Sills and Gary Jennings.
“I think it’s really easy to get West Virginia to 8-0 … If they beat Tennessee and North Carolina State, they will likely go to Austin, Texas, November 3rd, 8-0. They’ll probably be in the top five in the country, and Will Grier will be the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy at that point. And then, it’s the gauntlet.”
