WVU Adds Safety; Will Sit Out 2019 Season


After losing three safeties this week, West Virginia’s football program has at least partially addressed the resulting gap with a transfer. The only catch is that the new addition will have to sit out the 2019 season, and will have just one year of eligibility remaining in 2020.

Alonzo Addae

Alonzo Addae, the cousin of WVU secondary coach Jahmile Addae, has transferred from New Hampshire after redshirting one year and playing two for the Wildcats. The 5-11, 180-pound Addae played 24 games for UNH over the past two seasons, recording 61 tackles and 12 pass breakups. He also had two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.

Addae, a native of Toronto, Ontario, played for St Mary’s Catholic Secondary School, where he had 43 tackles and ten interceptions. He then attended The Peddie School in Highstown, New Jersey, for a prep season before going on to New Hampshire.

At The Peddie School, he was  named to the All-MAPL First Team and NJ.com 2015 All-Prep First Team after scoring racked up 12 TDs as a wide receiver and picking off four passes on defense.

    While WVU’s release did say Addae will have to sit out 2019, I understand that he will file an appeal with the NCAA in hopes of being granted immediate eligibility in 2019.
