FSU QB Transfer Trickett to Visit WVU


Florida State University transfer quarterback Clint Trickett will visit West Virginia for the annual Gold-Blue Game on Saturday. 

The redshirt junior announced his transfer from the Seminoles program on Wednesday following the team's spring game on April 13. Trickett finished that scrimmage 22-of-32 for 259 yards. 

Redshirt freshman standout Jameis Winston stole the show that day, completing 12-of-15 passes for 205 yards and three touchdowns, emerging from the game as the top candidate to take the starting position ahead of Trickett. 

West Virginia is looking to replace the production lost with the graduation of quarterback Geno Smith, who set multiple program records during his four-year career with the Mountaineers. The candidates currently fighting for that spot include junior Paul Millard and redshirt freshman Ford Childress, both of whom have been splitting reps throughout the spring sessions. 

The only other quarterback on WVU's roster is true freshman Chavas Rawlins. 

Trickett is the son of former WVU offensive line coach Rick Trickett, a West Virginia native. Trickett spent a number of years in Morgantown and still has relationships in the area and with the university, giving the move to WVU a sense of returning home. 

In addition to the Mountaineers, Trickett is considering South Florida, where head coach Willie Taggart is running a quarterback competition that culminated in Matt Floyd and Bobby Eveld committing four total turnovers in the Bulls' spring game. 

Trickett's career statistics show 947 yards with seven touchdowns and four interceptions in a reserve role.
