Dominique Maiden, WR, No. 82

Year: Junior

Height: 6’5”

Weight: 204

Hometown: Huntington, WV

JUCO: Riverside City College

High School: Temecula Valley High (CA)

How he got to Morgantown

Maiden spent two years at Riverside City College in California, racking up 14 touchdowns on his way to a consensus three star rating across the networks.

2017 Prospectus

You’ll see Maiden and David Sills compete for playing time behind Ka’raun White at the Z receiver position, and if Maiden can learn the offense, there’s no reason to believe he won’t be an important piece to Jake Spavital’s offense.

A tall downfield threat is something that this offense has been lacking in the past, and Maiden’s 6’5 frame will be a great addition for sideline routes and in the red zone.

Highlights

Dream Season

The laws of gods and men decree that a red zone fade thrown to anyone outside of Maiden will be punishable by immediate death. Jake Spavital understands this mandate and Will Grier throws it up to Dom to the tune of somewhere from 7-10 TDs, and Maiden enters the 2018 campaign as the hot candidate to be Dana Holgorsen and West Virginia’s next first round wide receiving prospect.
