Vote: Who will be the top West Virginia AAAA wide receiver of 2024?

We give you eight candidates to select from

The quality of wide receiver play in West Virginia was on full display in the 2023 season in every classification. That’s because the state is filled with pass catchers who can change games with either their route running abilities, catching the ball or both.

There’s no shortage of talented wide receivers in West Virginia, which makes it hard to pick just one as the best in the area.

So here at SBLive Sports West Virginia, we’re asking you, the fans, to decide. 

Vote now on who is the top AAAA wide receiver in West Virginia for 2024. Voting closes April 28, 2024.

Editor’s note: Our corresponding poll is intended to be fun, and we do not set limits on how many times a fan can vote during the competition. This poll is specifically for fans to vote on the players that have been nominated and in no way discredits any other players who may not be mentioned in our poll. 

Here are the nominations:

 Tayveon Wilson, Huntington: As a sophomore, Wilson caught 27 passes for 588 yards, 11 touchdowns. Averaged 21.8 yards per catch and also scored seven other times between running the ball offensively and defensively. 

Tyshawn Dues, Hurricane: Undoubtedly one of the state’s top receivers based on production last season. Dues returns after catching 46 passes for 884 yards and scoring 10 touchdowns in 2023. 

Jalyn Abercrombie, Spring Valley: The 5-foot-10, 175-pound wide receiver was a big part of the Timberwolves’ offense a season ago. Expect big things from Abercrombie moving forward as the 2024 season draws closer. 

Kashez Gedeon, Martinsburg: With an offer from Charlotte already on the table, Gedeon has shown he has the talent to play on the next level. The wide receiver is a fundamentally sound and will be one to watch this fall. 

Devon Forshey, Parkersburg South: The Patriots were able to do a lot of things offensively, which included putting the ball in the air. Forshey was the go-to-target, hauling in 29 passes for 556 yards and five touchdowns. 

Jamari Tubbs, Huntington: Though Wilson (see above) got a lot of the attention from opposing defenses, that freed up Tubbs. Watch out for the 6-foot-1, 170-pound wideout this upcoming fall. 

Ethan Jackson, University: Jackson was a standout at wide receiver for the Hawks last season, with the capability of also playing on defense at cornerback. The 5-foot-11, 160-pound receiver caught the attention of folks in 2023. 

Bryce Fuller, Spring Valley: The 6-foot, 155-pound wide receiver forms a formidable duo with Abercrombie at Spring Valley. Fuller should breakout this fall season.
