West Virginia defensive lineman Adam Shuler just announced that he is no longer a member of the football team, and will be transferring out of the WVU this Spring.

Shuler played in twelve games, starting in ten of them, as a redshirt Sophomore during the 2017 football season. He finished with 37 tackles, eight tackles for loss, three sacks and one fumble recovery. Shuler lost the starting job to Ezekiel Rose in the Mountaineers’ final three games of the season,

According to Chris Anderson of, Shuler plans to pursue a career in track & field at another school.

Shuler’s departure deals a fairly significant blow to the Mountaineers’ defensive line depth, and his absence may be felt throughout the 2018 season.
