Report: Will Grier visiting West Virginia today

|

Just over two months ago, former Florida quarterback Will Grier announced his intentions to transfer out of Gainesville. This mostly has to do with him not being able to play the first six games of the season and the Gators signing four-star quarterback Feleipe Franks.

It looks like Grier isn’t taking too long to try and find his new home. According to Mike Casazza of the Charleston Gazette-Mail, Grier is in Morgantown to visit the West Virginia Mountaineers today.

Due to NCAA transfer rule, Grier would have to sit out the entire 2016 season if he were to transfer to another FBS school. He would then also need to fulfill the NCAA suspension for testing positive for HGH midway through the 2015 season.

That means if he were to transfer on this level, he would likely not be eligible to play until six games into the 2017 season, barring an appeal against the sanctions.

However, this could end up being a good thing for the Mountaineers. Quarterback Skyler Howard will be a senior this year, so if Grier were to transfer to the Big 12 school and win an appeal, he would be able to take over for Howard next year.

Ahead of his suspension, Grier had thrown for 1,204 yards and ten touchdowns with three interceptions, which had him on pace to throw for nearly for 2,500 yards and 20 touchdowns. He also ran for 116 yards and two touchdowns on the year too.
