In his third year as a Mountaineer Simms had 46 catches for 699 yards and two touchdowns.
It was interesting when Simms left because he was set to be a leading target for the Mountaineers in the coming season. Simms and T.J. Simmons were the top returning target for the Mountaineers until Simms decided to move on.
It’s going to be very interesting see who lines up at receiver for WVU. Sean Ryan transferred in from Temple and former five-star recruit George Campbell transferred to WVU from Florida State. One thing is for sure. This team is going to looked very different at the wide receiver position when compared to last year’s team.
It will be very interesting to see whether or not Simms gets drafted. He has good size to go along with incredible speed and there’s a great chance someone takes a chance on him.
