West Virginia quarterback Will Grier is the latest College Football player to announce that he will not be playing in his school’s bowl game.  He’s decided to prepare for the NFL draft instead.

Via Pro Football Talk:

“After discussions with Jeanne and my family, and after receiving professional input, I have decided not to participate in our upcoming bowl game and focus on preparing myself and my family for what I hope is the next step in our journey,” Grier said in a message posted by program.

“Will and I spoke at length about the bowl game, and I am fully supportive of his decision to begin preparing for the NFL Draft,” WVU coach Dana Holgorsen said in a statement.

It’s a smart move for all of the players who have a pretty good idea that they will be drafted.  Grier is definitely one of those guys.  There’s nothing for Grier to gain by playing in the Camping World Bowl.
