WVU Football Releases Gray Uniforms

WVU football has released its gray alternate uniforms, complete with gray helmets, and the school had wide receiver Ryan Nehlen model them for the press earlier this week.

They look sleek and smart, but more than that, they should help boost West Virginia in recruiting.

"It's a recruiting thing," Holgorsen said of the alternate uniforms. "If you look across the country, we're behind on this. Everyone is going (Nike) Pro Combat. Everyone has three or four new uniforms. We're far from that. It's recruiting. Why is everyone doing it? Because the kids want it. It's television and marketing and the kids get excited about what they can see."

That makes sense, of course. I'd never thought of the recruits themselves being the uniforms' target audience, but we live in an image-driven culture.

WVU still has blue, gold, and white jerseys and pants, but expect to see plenty of gray this year.
