WVU is home to some of the biggest names and faces in sports.  From campus stars to football stars, WVU never ceases to amaze us with the talent they produce in each draft class.  

As a former Morgantown resident, and WVU student, I can take pride in being on campus during the times of the great Tavon Austin, Stedman Bailey and Kevin White, every student has the opportunity to name the greats they were on campus with.

During the Rich Rodriguez era, WVU solidified its spot as one of the greatest college football programs of all time.

Though I wasn’t on campus during an infamous QB from WVU, here’s a list of some of the greatest quarterbacks to touch the WVU campus…
