The Mountaineer secondary took its second hit since the end of spring camp as cornerback Jordan Adams announced today he would be seeking another place to complete his final year of eligibility. He will be a graduate transfer and eligible to play immediately at his school of choice.
The Maryland native initially came to Morgantown alongside his twin brother Jacquez who left the team prior to the 2018 season. Jordan initially announced he would be leaving alongside his brother but returned to the team shortly thereafter. Today, Adams thanked the people who had an impact on him at WVU but later said upon graduating he would be leaving the program.
Who would’ve thought my journey would look or be like this? Not I not one bit but I would like to thank every member that had an impact on my life while being here at WVU. My last year my Grad year I have decided to hit the portal to find and seek a new home for me. Thanks Dub V!

Adams had provided depth at the cornerback position over the last four years, appearing in fourteen games from 2016-2018. He played mostly on special teams and was expected to see more rotational time as a senior. He will end his WVU career with seven career tackles, all of which came during the ten games he played in 2018.
The departure of Jordan Adams may have a serious impact on the Mountaineer secondary in 2019. With him leaving, WVU is left with just four scholarship corners until Tavian Mayo and Nicktroy Fortune enroll in the fall as true freshman. Only three of these players have experience in a Mountaineer uniform as Dreshun Miller just arrived in the spring from junior college. Neal Brown’s staff knew depth would be an issue at corner this year, but it just got a bit tougher.
