Following a disastrous 2022 season for the WVU defense, the unit couldn’t withstand many more blows if they wanted to turn it around in 2023. With that being said, it appears that it has gotten worse for Jordan Lesley’s group.
According to Head Coach Neal Brown, true freshman linebacker Josiah Trotter has suffered a “lower leg” injury, and will likely miss the entirety of the 2023 season.
Trotter, a Pennsylvania product, was rated as a three-star prospect by 247Sports. He garnered interest from several prominent schools including Penn State, Clemson, and Notre Dame. Despite being inexperienced, he was expected to step in and contribute to the Mountaineers right away.
