WVU Adds Football Transfer To 2020 Roster


WVU head coach Neal Brown listed three potential positions for additions to the Mountaineer 2020 football roster during the spring, and one of those came to fruition on Saturday when Arizona safety Scottie Young announced his commitment to the West Virginia program.

A 2017 graduate of Helix High School in San Diego, California, Young immediately pushed his way into the Wildcat lineup. As a freshman in 2017, he played in ten games with nine starts, and had 53 tackles. He recorded the same number of games and starts in 2018, and had 38 tackles and a team-best three interceptions while splitting time between the free safety and spur position in the UA defense.

During that sophomore season, he served a spring and one-game suspension after being charged with misdemeanor domestic violence. That charge was eventually dismissed after Young completed a diversion program.

His third year in 2019, he settled at safety and had 66 tackles (50 solo) with another interception.

For his career, he totaled 157 stops in three seasons (116 solo), with nine tackles for loss and five interceptions. He also had 12 pass deflections.

Young (5-11, 200 lbs.) entered the transfer portal one month ago. He had 30 starts for the Wildcats.

At Arizona, Young was coached for two seasons by Jahmile Addae (2016-17). Addae is entering his second season as West Virginia’s cornerbacks coach.

Some reports have listed Young as a graduate transfer, however, he is not listed as such in the NCAA transfer portal. He will have one year of eligibility remaining.

    So, if you make the link, Addae poached his former player?

    So is this transfer a grad transfer who is immediately eligible or does he have to sit a year as a normal transfer?

    #117134

    Totally unfair to assume that, Butler, with zero supporting evidence.

    jaguar,

    Some have reported it as a grad transfer, but he is not listed as such in the Portal. Working on clarifying that issue. If he is not a grad transfer, he could always apply for a waiver.

    If you say so Kevin.  You could be right.  But would we have landed him if there was not a connection?  Did he call Addae before he put his name in the portal?  These guys keep in touch with former coaches.  May not be poaching per say, but some of these kids know where they are going before they put their names in the portal.

    Is the WR transfer from Lvlle still coming?

    #117139

    Wakefield enrolled at WVU in January but he is a walk-on.

    Ahhhhh.  That explains the 3rd open schollie.  Other sites had him as a schollie transfer.

    It was your use of “poached” which implies improper conduct, that I was addressing. Wasn’t meaning to parse words too thinly.

    Without question having Coach Addae as a contact put WVU up on his list of potential destinations. Just heading off any thinking that Addae did anything wrong.

    Not saying that Addae broke any of the rules.  We see that Brown runs the program a little differently than other coaches.  But the portal has it’s consequences.  Sometimes it draws out the darker side of coaches.  Take a look at Holgs first year in Houston.  Tons of transfers along with holding players back.  TOS has 12 transfers listed for the 2019 year.  You can’t tell me that ALL of those transfers just happened to land in Holgs lap.  Only 1 was from a non P5 team.
