Draft Scout Will Grier News
01/29/19 - Will Grier became a star quarterback at West Virginia, but knows NFL teams also want his take on what happened at Florida. It's something he's addressing with them this week at the Senior Bowl. Grier received a yearlong suspension in 2015 as a redshirt freshman for violating the NCAA's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. He wound up leaving Florida and landing with the Mountaineers. He says it "was an unfortunate thing that really hurt me. I poured my heart and soul into that program. I wanted to stay there. I poured my heart and soul into those teammates. I pride myself on outworking everybody, and it was really rough on me. I felt like I let my teammates down. " Grier says he has had "thousands of drug tests since then and never had another issue. It's not who I am, and I would never let my teammates down in any circumstances again. That's one of the things I learned." Grier is recovering from an ankle injury that led to him sitting out West Virginia's bowl game. He predicts it will be "full go" in time for the combine. - AP College Football
12/08/18 - QB Will Grier will skip the Mountaineers' bowl game against Syracuse. Grier revealed his decision in a statement Saturday morning, explaining that he is bypassing the bowl game in order to prepare for the 2019 NFL Draft. Although a number of high-profile college players also are skipping bowl games for the season reason, Grier is the first quarterback to go that route. Grier, who guided West Virginia to an 8-3 overall mark and 6-3 record in the Big 12 during his senior season, received the backing of Mountaineers head coach Dana Holgorsen for his decision to skip the matchup versus Syracuse.
11/10/18 - Once No. 7 West Virginia's offense found a rhythm, the Mountaineers imposed their will on TCU. West Virginia scored three touchdowns in a 3:25 span late in the second quarter to break open a tie game and propel the Mountaineers to a 47-10 victory over the Horned Frogs on Saturday. Will Grier had touchdown throws of 32, 8 and 4 yards, the eighth time this season he's had at least three. Grier finished 25 of 39 for 343 yards on a breezy day. "I have a lot of respect for (TCU coach) Gary Patterson and that team. Controlling the tempo is huge," Grier said, adding that offensive coordinator Jake Spavital "did a great job of mixing it up and just us being on the same page."
West Virginia (8-1, 6-1 Big 12, No. 9 CFP) piled up 535 yards of offense against the injury-riddled Horned Frogs (4-6, 2-5) as it pursues a possible berth in the conference championship game with two regular-season games left. "Morale's good. Confidence is good. Work ethic is good. It's why we're winning," West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen said. "You're only as good as your next one, so these guys have to continue doing that." Four of West Virginia's six touchdown drives took less than 1:30. - AP College Football
