The Big 12 Conference announces their preseason awards and All-Conference teams today, and West Virginia got plenty of love from the media that covers the league.

Senior quarterback Will Grier has been named the Preseason Offensive Player of the Year and First Team quarterback heading into 2018. He's joined on the offensive side of the ball by offensive tackle Yodny Cajuste and wide receiver David Sills. On the defensive side of the ball, the lone Mountaineer picked was junior linebacker David Long.

Grier threw for 3,490 yards and 34 touchdowns to just 12 interceptions in essentially ten games before a finger injury sidelined him for the remainder of the season. He was named Big12 Newcomer of the Year in the preseason and followed that up by winning the award in the postseason. This offseason, he's been named to numerous All-American teams, and has been labeled as potentially the top quarterback in the country, even in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Cajuste busted into the starting lineup for the Mountaineers as a redshirt freshman in 2015, but injuries - first a sprained knee and then a torn ACL - sidelined him for the next season and a half. In his first full season healthy, Cajuste earned Second Team All-Big12 honors in 2017. He's been a virtual consensus Preseason All-Big 12 performer this offseason, adding accolades from Lindy's, Phil Steele, Athlon Sports, and Street & Smiths.

Sills was a Biletnikoff Award finalist in 2017, an honor given to the nation's top wide receiver. He led the country with 18 touchdown receptions while catching 60 passes for 980 yards. He earned First Team All-Big12 honors last year, along with three selections to First Team All-American squads. This offseason, he's been a consensus All-Big12 pick, with several outlets - including Lindy's, Athlon Sports, Street & Smiths and Phil Steele - naming his First Team Preseason All-American.

Long missed the first four games of the 2017 season due to a knee injury suffered in the spring, but bounced back as the leading tackler for loss in Big12 play last season. He played the final nine games and registered 76 tackles and 16.5 tackles for loss, the latter of which led West Virginia for the season. The coaches only gave him Honorable Mention honors last year, but ESPN had him as a first team performer, while Pro Football Focus named him a Second Team All-American. He grades out as the top-ranked linebacker returning for 2018, according to Pro Football Focus.
