After losing lots of playmakers to the NFL Draft and graduation, West Virginia is set to lose another piece on the offensive side of the ball. Wide Receiver Marcus Simms is will be leaving the program and putting his name into the NCAA’s transfer portal.
Simms kept it very brief on Twitter, apparently wanting to skip playing for Neal Brown after Dana Holgorsen left for Houston.
On to another chapter 😈🤐— MARCUS SIMMS (@chasinbandzz) April 28, 2019
Simms was productive in 2018, with 46 catches for 699 yards and two touchdowns as a junior last fall.
The departure of Simms is another hit to Neal Brown’s offense, which already lost David Sills and Gary Jennings, who combined for 28 TDs in 2018, along with All-Conference quarterback Will Grier. So now for the Mountaineers, the top returning receiver is junior T.J. Simmons, who was fourth on the team last season with 28 catches for 341 yards.
