West Virginia offensive lineman Junior Uzebu has entered the NCAA transfer portal, he announced via Twitter Monday afternoon.

Uzebu was a redshirt-sophomore for the Mountaineers. He was named WVU’s starter at left tackle to start the 2020 season, winning the job over redshirt-freshman Brandon Yates. Yates has since taken over the starting job.

Uzebu redshirt as a true freshman at West Virginia in 2018 and played in only a couple of games last season.

It was reported that WVU receiver Zack Dobson also entered his name into the transfer portal Monday.

And we’ll see this over and over again. It is the new normal. “I lost my starting job. Instead of fighting to get it back or enjoying my role as the backup and wait for my opportunity, I’m gonna leave my teammates and friends to go get mine.” Is that the “right” of the player? Sure. Is it “right” to be so selfish? Not if you want friends to think they matter more to you than your own success.
