Former Miami Hurricane DB Antonio Crawford Transferring To West Virginia

WVU is set to receive a graduate transfer from the Miami Hurricanes.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The WVU defensive secondary is getting deeper and deeper.

Crawford announced his intentions to transfer in February, but waited until today to announce his destination.

Crawford was a three star prospect out of Plant High School in Florida who has been with the Hurricanes and played every game since his arrival in 2012. He was used as the top nickel back for Miami and was looking to challenge for a starting position this fall. After publicly airing some displeasure with the Miami program, Crawford was looking for a new home.

If all goes as planned, Crawford should graduate this spring and have one year of eligibility remaining to play immediately for the Mountaineers. He joins an already crowded & talented Mountaineer backfield that features Daryl Worley, Terrell Chestnut, Nana Kyeremeh & Ricky Rumph.

Welcome home Antonio!
