Transfer Portal DL Jared Verse Picks Up Offer from West Virginia



With the transfer portal madness basically serving as a college football free agency this season, and possibly in the seasons to come, West Virginia has made one of its first offers of the season.

Albany defensive lineman Jared Verse entered the transfer portal entered the portal on Tuesday and in the last 48 hours, he’s already received offers from Kansas, Western Kentucky, Buffalo, Utah State, James Madison, Colorado, Kent State, Bowling Green, Purdue San Diego State, Utah, Houston and now WVU.

Verse (6-foot-4, 250 pounds), a redshirt freshman who redshirted in 2019 and had a season basically wiped out in 2020, exploded onto the scene for Albany this season as the Colonial Athletic Conference Rookie of the Year.

Verse recorded 52 tackles (31 solo), 11.5 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, forced a fumble and broke up a pass for Albany this fall, and during Albany’s condensed spring season, he recorded 22 tackles (15 solo), 10 tackles for loss, four sacks and a forced fumble in four games.

He’s originally from Central Columbia High School in Berwick, Pennsylvania, where he didn’t receive too much recruiting hype. However, his recruiting chase this time around will be much more contested.

With basically an entire college career ahead of him, Verse will be in high demand as a potential impact transfer, with three seasons of eligibility left at the collegiate level.
