2022-2023 West Virginia Football Transfer Portal Tracker

Follow all the Mountaineers’ comings and goings on the portal

NCAA Football: Kentucky at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The Transfer Portal is officially open for FBS athletes and chaos has washed over the college football landscape. West Virginia already has three players officially in the portal, but will they be able to fight off a flood of outbound transfers? Will head coach Neal Brown employ a different strategy, with the help of Country Roads Trust, when pulling guys out of the portal this year?

We’ll track all of the comings, goings, and names to keep an eye on below and keep this page updated as the off-season continues. We will flip over to a new season once the 2023 football season commences. This includes the profile pages for the incoming players from their old schools’ sites.

Feel free to use this as an open thread to discuss all of the latest college transfer portal news and follow all the latest moves here:
