Source: DJ Oliver One of Two Players No Longer with WVU Football Program



WVU Football RB DJ Oliver

Despite the transfer portal being closed, a couple players have exited the WVU football program. WV Sports Now can confirm through a source that running back DJ Oliver is no longer a Mountaineer.

This confirmation comes after a report from about both Oliver and offensive lineman Charlie Katarincic’s departure.

The transfer portal is currently closed to non graduate transfers, but Oliver left the program after winter workouts and will now be on the hunt for a new college home once the portal reopens after spring ball.

Oliver played in four games as a freshman in 2023 and was withheld from further action by WVU football head coach Neal Brown to preserve his eligibility. The 6-foot-3, 237-pound back was a member of West Virginia’s 2023 recruiting class.

As for Katarincic, the report from EerSports suggests he has also left the program. He arrived in Morgantown in 2022 and then redshirted his first year at WVU. He played only a handful of snaps and experienced some time on special teams this past season.

WV Sports Now will update this story as we learn more information.
