Mountaineer Nation, thank you for being the most passionate fans in college football. Y’all showed love to me and provided an advantage every time I stepped on the field. Thank you Mike Joseph and Vince Blankenship for helping me come back from my injury to play the game I love. Thank you to all my brothers at WVU for pushing me every single day. With that being said, I have entered my name in the transfer portal for my last year of eligibility. #GG
