Ahead of national signing day in a few weeks, the West Virginia football program made a couple of additions to the roster Monday with walkon transfers Matt Cavallaro and Keion Wakefield.
Reported by Mike Casazza of 247Sports, both Cavallaro and Wakefield have enrolled early at WVU, coming to campus for this spring semester.
Wakefield comes to WVU as a graduate transfer wide receiver from the Louisville Cardinals. Wakefield entered the transfer portal in December and should have two seasons of eligibility remaining. Wakefield redshirted in 2017 and played sparingly the following two season. In 14 games across the 2018 and 2019 seasons Wakefield, 5-foot-10 184 pounds, made seven receptions for 80 yards. He also returned two kickoffs for 44 yards.
The Mountaineers only lost one receiver from this past season with the graduation of George Campbell. Campbell, a graduate transfer himself, led the Mountaineers in touchdown receptions (seven) and finished second in receiving yards (469).
Cavallaro is a junior college transfer from Lackawanna College in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Cavallaro will have three seasons of eligibility at WVU. He started all season for the Falcons, passing for 1,754 yards and 23 touchdowns with a 51.1% completion percentage. Cavallaro threw only seven interceptions and scored six more touchdowns on the ground.
Cavallaro and Lackawanna played in the JUCO National Championship game against Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College (MGCCC) and West Virginia recruit Jackie Mathews. Matthews intercepted Cavallaro on the final play of the game to seal the win for MGCCC.
