MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia says former Florida State quarterback Clint Trickett is now a Mountaineer.

West Virginia football spokesman Mike Montoro confirmed Trickett’s transfer Wednesday.

Trickett was released from his Florida State scholarship last month. The junior is on target to graduate this month and can transfer and be eligible to play in the fall. He’ll have two years of eligibility remaining.

Trickett had been competing for the Seminoles’ starting job during spring practice that wrapped up in mid-April.

He’ll compete in West Virginia’s fall camp with Paul Millard and Ford Childress for the starting job left by the departed Geno Smith.

Trickett’s father, Rick, spent six seasons as offensive line coach at West Virginia before leaving for the same job at Florida State in 2007.
