Winston Wright enters the Transfer Portal
Winston Wright, the former three-star wide receiver out of Memorial Day School, has announced that he is transferring from West Virginia.
Wright announced the news in a post on his social media accounts.
“Dear Mountaineer Nation,
These past 3 years have been the best moments of my life. I want to start off by thanking God for blessing me with the ability to play the game I love. I want to thank my family for always supporting me and having my back through everything. I want to thank Coach Parker, Coach Brown and Coach Mike and the whole WVU Football staff for the opportunity to play at This Great University I wanna thank all my teammates without y’all I wouldn’t be anything I love y’all so much words can’t explain. I came in and now I’m leaving with friends that turned into family. To the Wolfpack, keep setting the example and being great I love y’all. To the fans, I appreciate the unconditional support through the good times but also the bad I love y’all!! With that being said, I will be entering my name into the Transfer Portal. Once a Mountaineer always a Mountaineer

Wright will certainly be a hot commodity. For the second consecutive year, the Savannah-native led West Virginia in receiving yards.
- 2020 – 47 receptions, 553 yards, 2 TD
- 2021 – 63 receptions, 688 yards, 5 TD
He was also explosive in the return game, averaging 24.7 yards per return, including 2 for touchdowns.
He joins fellow Savannahian, and West Virginia wide receiver, Sam Brown in the Transfer Portal.
