Former West Virginia TE Mike O’Laughlin Commits to Transfer to Houston



Former West Virginia tight end Mike O’Laughlin has announced his new college home.

In an Instagram post late Tuesday night, O’Laughlin committed to transfer to Houston, deciding to join former WVU head coach Dana Holgorsen. “New digs…new town…same drive!,” said O’Laughlin captioned the post.

O’Laughlin entered the transfer portal back in early December after initially publicly contemplating retirement. His thoughts about possibly retiring stemmed from suffering another season ending injury during the 2022 season. The veteran tight end has endured three total ACL tears since 2018. He will be a grad transfer now at Houston.

When he posted his thoughts about retiring, O’Laughlin essay about his football career, his time in Morgantown and his string of injuries. He detailed his first ACL injury in 2018, discovering he tore his ACL/MCL in a game last October, one he actually finished and then eventually coming to terms with the realization that that he endured a third ACL tear in Austin against Texas.

He will now hope to finish out his college career on a healthier note with Houston as they transition to the Big 12.
