A West Virginia quarterback has a new college football home as he hopes for more playing time.
Will “Goose” Crowder, who entered the transfer portal on Dec. 5, has committed to transfer to Troy. He posted the news on Instagram Thursday night.
The Trojans are coming off the program’s first top 25 ranking at the end of a season since joining the FBS. Troy was ranked number 19 by the AP following a 12-2 overall record and a victory in the Cure Bowl over UTSA.
Crowder entered the 2022 season at WVU in a four-man quarterback competition alongside Garrett Greene, Nicco Marchiol and JT Daniels. Daniels won the competition, but eventually lost his starting job to Greene.
The performance of Greene and Marchiol down the stretch, making one of them the quarterback for next season, likely led to the decision to transfer for Crowder.
Crowder was part of the 2021 class and received an academic redshirt his first season, although he did play very briefly against FCS opponent Long Island University.
He appeared in WVU’s FCS game against Towson this past year as well. Crowder leaves WVU with a perfect completion percentage of 8-for-8 passes for 85 yards.
Crowder now becomes the second former Mountaineer quarterback to transfer to Troy in less than a year, joining Jarret Doege.
