Pitt wide receiver Jester Weah returns next season and figures to be a big part of the team's offense. The ACC's official website broke down the top five wideouts in the conference for 2017 and he was listed as No. 4 (video).

Weah led the team in catches (36), yardage (870), and touchdown catches (ten). He also topped the entire conference in yardage per catch with 24.2 yards per grab. Even more impressively is that last year marked the first time he even registered a catch in college football despite it being his fourth year in the program.

I'm interested to see what Weah produces next season. He's emerged as a deep threat so much of his production will depend on the chemistry he builds up with new quarterback Max Browne.

Weah won't be the catch machine that someone like Tyler Boyd is. He's simply not built for that. But I'm hoping he can become a guy that catches a few more short passes because that should add some unpredictability to his game and allow him to continue slipping behind coverages for deep balls.
