First reported by On3Sports insider Gerry Hamilton, former USC quarterback Jaxson Dart has cut his transfer list down to three schools. Dart has Oklahoma, TCU and Ole Miss in his top three, leaving West Virginia out of it.

Following the hire of offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Graham Harrell, rumors swirled that Dart would consider coming to WVU after entering the transfer portal. Dart played under Harrell for his freshman season under the Trojans. In his freshman season, Dart threw for 1,353 passing yards and nine passing touchdowns, in six games.

Dart will visit Ole Miss this weekend, then taking trips to Oklahoma and TCU eventually. Former USC TE Michael Trigg, another rumored target that WVU is interested in, will also visit Oklahoma and new head coach Brent Venables.

For West Virginia, Brown and Harrell still look at a quarterback depth chart with Garrett Greene, Nicco Marchiol and Will ‘Goose’ Crowder.
