West Virginia offensive lineman Yodny Cajuste to skip the Camping World Bowl

Cajuste is the first Mountaineer to announce he’s skipping the bowl game to prepare for the NFL Draft

NCAA Football: Big 12 Media Day Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The West Virginia Mountaineers will be without their starting left tackle when they take on the Syracuse Orange in the Camping World Bowl on December 28th in Orlando, Florida.

The senior from Miramar, Florida announced he’ll be skipping the bowl game to prepare for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Cajuste is currently projected to be a mid-first to second round pick by some outlets. He played in 31 games over the course of his career in Morgantown, starting 30 of those. Cajuste was named first-team All Big-12 last week.

West Virginia is still waiting on decisions from several other NFL Draft-bound players, including quarterback Will Grier and wide receiver Gary Jennings. After their loss to the Oklahoma Sooners, David Sills V told reporters that he plans to play in the bowl game but there hasn’t been any confirmation after that.
