West Virginia’s quarterback room added yet another transfer on Tuesday as former Miami signal-caller Jack Allison announced he would be heading to Morgantown instead of a junior college this offseason.
The somewhat surprising move means the Mountaineers will have at least three transfer quarterbacks on the roster this year even if Allison is not expected to be eligible to play until 2018. Former Florida QB Will Grier appears to be the starter for the upcoming season once any and all NCAA transfer issues are cleared up as the school expects, while the team also signed David Isreal out of a junior college this spring.
Backup Cody Saunders recently had to take a medical retirement from football but it seems Dana Holgorsen didn’t waste much time in replacing him by bringing in the former Miami product just a few days later. Allison left Coral Gables looking for more playing time so it will be interesting to track if he eventually finds it at West Virginia once he eventually gets cleared to play.
