VIDEO: WKU returns a lot at receiver

WKUInsider is running a position series as a preseason football feature to help you get familiar with the entire WKU roster. Along with a breakdown of the position each day, we will also do a video preview. Here's a look at today's video preview of the Hilltoppers wide receivers.

It was a record-breaking season for the Western Kentucky offense in 2014 and with quarterback Brandon Doughty, along with 70 percent of the team's receptions returning, the expectations are again high on The Hill for 2015.

Highlighted by the return of the key starters in Jared Dangerfield and Taywan Taylor, the Hilltoppers have a talented and dangerous group of receivers that could rival any group in the nation.

Dangerfield set a new WKU single-season record last fall with 69 receptions and tied the school single-season mark for touchdowns with 11. Taylor, who hauled in 45 catches for 767 yards and seven touchdowns, is a constant big-play threat.

Also returning is senior Antwane Grant. Grant hauled in 51 passes for 509 yards a six scores a season.

Climbing the depth chart is junior Nicholas Norris and 2013 Kentucky Mr. Football Nacarius Fant. Will Bush, a redshirt freshman, will also see time at receiver this season.
