Will Grier announced he would be transferring to West Virginia just a few weeks ago and he wasted little time getting to Morgantown. As of Monday, Grier is now officially enrolled at the university.
Mike Casazza of the Charleston Gazette-Mail reported that Grier was one of four players who recently enrolled at West Virginia. He joins running back Justin Crawford, tight end Tevon Wesco and safety Kyzir White.

Grier will have to sit out the 2016 season due to NCAA transfer rules and, because the appeal of his yearlong suspension was denied, he will have to sit out the first six games of the 2017 season as well.
Once all of these issues are cleared up, Grier should be able to return to the team and begin playing next fall.
This could work out for the Mountaineers in the end as Will Grier could compete for the starting job in 2017 after incumbent starter Skyler Howard graduates after the 2016 season. During his six games at Florida last year, the rising redshirt sophomore threw for 1,202 yards and 10 touchdowns while rushing for 116 yards and two touchdowns.
