Ex-WVU QB signee dropping down to FCS level

Chavas Rawlins

A little over two months after abruptly leaving West Virginia, Chavas Rawlins has found a new football home.

In a press release, Duquesne announced that the quarterback has signed a financial aid agreement and will be a part of the football program this year.  As the Dukes play at the FCS level, Rawlins will be eligible to play immediately in 2013.

Rawlins, a three-star member of WVU’s 2013 recruiting class and the only QB signed this year by the Mountaineers, participated in spring practice as an early signee but did not play in the spring game as all of the reps went to Paul Millard and Ford Childress.

Shortly thereafter, the player decided to transfer out of WVU.  Rawlins’ high school coach said in May that his former player’s decision to transfer was heavily impacted by the departure of Mountaineers quarterbacks coach Jake Spavital, who left earlier in the year for the same job at Texas A&M.

    Competition level at a Big 12 school must be a shock for some hs kids.

    It’s a shame that he couldn’t wait it out…
    Pat White was on the bench the first 2 games of the season and one injury to Adam B. and the rest is history….

    I’m sure it was a shock to him and I really don’t think Spatival leaving had a thing to do with it. Apparently from his choice he wanted to be the big QB on campus and be pampered around from day one and its just not that way when you sign with a major conference school. He should be happy where he is but it’s almost certain he’s going to regret it. It’s a shame.
