Nix, Auburn’s former three-year starting quarterback who recently entered the transfer portal, In 10 starts this past season, Nix threw for 2,294 yards and 11 touchdowns with just three interceptions, and is the 3rd leading passer in Auburn history.
While the quarterback too will already be very crowded next season with incumbent starter Jarret Doege returning, as well as Garrett Greene and Will “Goose” Crowder scheduled to come back, and freshman sensation Nicco Marchiol arriving in Morgantown, you just can’t pass up on a talent like Bo Nix if you’re Neal Brown and he’s interested .
Nix, a former four star recruit, is an absolute gamer and would be the perfect fit to transition to the Nicco Marchiol era. The Mountaineers were one solid, effective quarterback away from being a 8-4, 9-3 or even 10-2 team this season.
With players like Spencer Rattler, Kedon Slovis, Max Johnson, Harrison Bailey, Myles Brennan and Bo Nix having transferred, the transfer portal is loaded with quarterback talent that could immediately make West Virginia a real contender next season. Of all the outstanding quarterbacks available, Bo Nix is the perfect fit for a West Virginia that is one Bo Nix-caliber quarterback away from being a competitor in 2022.
