West Virginia Mountaineers spear safety Tykee Smith, a stalwart on the defense in his two years in Morgantown, has entered his name into the transfer portal.

Dear Mountaineer Family, I would like to thank West Virginia University for giving me the opportunity to play the sport that I love at a high level, I would also like to thank the staff, my teammates, fans and most importantly the academic advisors for all of the love and support that I received during my time there. Lastly, I would like to thank my family and friends for being by my side, every step of the way. Despite that, I would like to announce that I will be entering the transfer portal. however, West Virginia will always have a special place in my heart!! - Tykee Smith #23.

Smith becomes the 16th Mountaineer to transfer out of the program since the end of the season. With the new transfer rule that allows students a free transfer and an extra year of eligibility, the player transfer portal has been extremely active this year.
