MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia quarterback Will Grier has hurt his throwing hand while trying to score on a run against Texas.
Grier dove for the pylon in the first quarter Saturday and landed awkwardly on his right hand. One of his fingers appeared to be bent backward as he held up his hand while running to the sideline. He was bent over in pain as trainers worked on him.
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia has added a junior college quarterback to its roster.
Coach Dana Holgorsen announced Wednesday the signing of 6-foot-2 David Isreal for the 2017 season. He threw for more than 1,800 yards and 13 touchdowns as a freshman last season at Butler Community College in El Dorado, Kansas.
Holgorsen says Isreal will enroll at WVU this summer and will have three years of eligibility remaining. Isreal is a native of Blythewood, South Carolina.
