West Virginia junior receiver Zack Dobson has entered into the NCAA transfer portal, according to Mike Casazza of 247Sports.

Dobson transferred to WVU from MIddle Tennessee State this summer. He received a waiver to play this season but had not appeared in the first seven games for the Mountaineers. Last month, WVU football coach Neal Brown said he thought Dobson could potentially help the team later on this season.

“I’d say he’s not ready to go out on Saturdays yet,” Brown said. “He’ll definitely help us in the future, but hopefully, we can get him to a spot where he can help us later in the year but it’s not going to be this week.”

In two seasons with the Blue Raiders, Dobson played in 17 games, catching 31 passes for 413 yards and seven touchdowns. He also ran the ball 33 times for 327 yards and another score.

In 2019 Dobson was the team’s fourth-leading receiver with 242 yards on 16 receptions. He also scored three times.

Coming out of Fulton High School in Knoxville, Tennessee in 2017, Dobson was rated as a three-star prospect by 247Sports. MTSU was his only FBS offer along with Austin Peay, Charleston Southern, Gardner-Webb and Jackson State.
