West Virginia WR George Campbell Applies for Sixth Season of Eligibility

NCAA Football: Oklahoma State at West Virginia

West Virginia Mountaineers wide receiver George Campbell has applied for a sixth season of eligibility according to head coach Neal Brown.

“We (are) pretty certain that he’ll be approved,” Brown said on Friday afternoon. “It’s really going to be a decision for him.”

During his time at Florida State, the 6-foot-4-inch wide receiver was limited by injuries and as a result played in only 11 games during his previous two seasons with the Seminoles before transferring to WVU prior to this season.

During his redshirt senior with the Mountaineers, he caught 19 passes for 169 yards and seven touchdowns over 11 games.


West Virginia finished the season on a high note, winning two of its last three games to finish 5-7 in Neal Brown’s first season as head coach in Morgantown.

Coming out of high school in the Class of 2015, Campbell was a five-star recruit who was ranked as a top five wide receiver in America, according to Rivals.

WVU struggled much more on the offensive side of the ball than the defensive side, so any pieces coming back on offense would be a huge boost for Neal Brown heading into 2020.
