Will Grier will return for senior season at West Virginia

West Virginia quarterback Will Grier will be back in Morgantown, W. Va. for one more year.

Grier announced in a statement on Thursday that he will return for his senior season in 2018.

“After much prayer and consultation with family and coaches, I have decided to return to West Virginia for my senior season,” Grier said in the statement. “There is still a great deal that I want this team to accomplish and I look forward to helping lead to success in 2018….West Virginia is my home and I couldn’t be more excited about the future here.”

Grier, a former Florida transfer, played in his first season with the Mountaineers in 2017. He suffered a regular-season ending hand injury against Texas on Nov. 18 before undergoing successful surgery.

Grier threw for 3,490 passing yards and 34 touchdowns during the regular season.
