West Virginia quarterback Jarret Doege, after apparently leaning toward staying for a final season at WVU, announced his intention to seek another location for his final year of college eligibility on Saturday.

He was preceded earlier in the day by Winston Wright’s announcement.
Thank you WVU💙💛,

Statistically, Doege was solid during his WVU career, but inaccuracy and inconsistency on a number of throws kept him from bettering his 6,453 career passing yards. Interceptions were also an inssue, with 19 counteracting his 40 touchdown passes.
Wright got plenty of targets and chances in West Virginia’s offense, althouh he was rarely able to create explosive plays. He had 63 catches this year for 688 yards and five scores, and also had two big kickoff returns in the first two games of the season, accounting for 307 yards against Maryland and LIU. Productivity waned there, however, as he had just 311 yards in the final 11 games of the season.
Since the summer of 2021, West Virginia has seen some 28 scholarship players enter the transfer portal. Many of those were backups or players that did not see the field, but those that did at varying levels of participation include Isaiah Esdale, VanDarius Cowan, A’Varius Sparrow, K.J. Martin, Jacob Long, Jeffery Pooler, Tykee Smith, Dreshun Miller, Noah Guzman, Briason Mays, Alec Sinkfield, Ali Jennings, Austin Kendall and Quay Mays.
