Morgantown, West Virginia – West Virginia wide receiver Winston Wright, one of West Virginia’s most dynamic players and one of the best kick returners in college football, posted a very cryptic message on his personal social media account today.
Wright, who had 63 receptions for 688 yards and 5 touchdowns this season for the Mountaineers, said the following: “It’s been a pleasure…Love y’all boys.
It’s been a pleasure… Love y’all boys 💙💛

Although Wright could simply be saying farewell to his senior teammates, he could also be saying good bye to West Virginia. We’ve reached out to Wright for comment and have yet to hear back from him.
Wright, a junior from Savannah, Georgia, only had 3 catches for 16 yards in West Virginia’s loss against Minnesota in the Guaranteed Rate Bowl.
Stay tuned! Losing a player of the caliber of Winston Wright would be devastating for the West Virginia football program and the Mountaineers chances of being successful next season.
West Virginia redshirt freshman cornerback Daryl Porter, Jr. replied to Wright’s message, saying, “Appreciate you family!” This really appears to be Wright leaving the team and not just saying good bye to the seniors. Stay tuned!
appreciate you family!
