According to the Bradenton Herald, former 4-star quarterback Jack Allison is transferring from the University of Miami. Allison, according to his father, will decide between West Virginia University and Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.

MGCCC, a junior college located in Perkinston, MS offers Allison the ability to play immediately next year. If Allison chooses West Virginia, he will be forced to sit a year due to NCAA transfer rules.

Allison, who hails from Palmetto, FL, chose Miami over offers from Alabama, Baylor, Florida and Florida State. Jack chose Miami in part because of former head coach Al Golden. Golden was fired in 2015 after losing to Clemson 58-0.

Golden went 32-25 during his five years at Miami, including tying for first place in 2012 in the ACC Coastal division. Due to NCAA investigation into Ponzi schemer Nevin Shapiro, Miami made itself ineligible for the title game.

Should Allison choose West Virginia, he would be ineligible for the 2017 season. He would enter 2018 as a redshirt sophomore with three years of eligibility remaining.
