West Virginia Making Effort to Land Michigan Top Transfer Safety Keon Sabb



WVU Football going after top transfer safety Keon Sabb

The Mountaineers are swinging for the fences in their attempt at landing one of the top players in the transfer portal. West Virginia is one of many schools  to contact Michigan transfer safety Keon Sabb, according to a report by On3 Sports’ Hawes Facett.

Michigan’s plans to repeat as national champions suffered their first major hit player wise when Sabb entered the transfer portal Friday morning. Sabb (6-foot-2, 200 pounds) will bring elite level play and tons of big game experience with him to his next school.

After appearing in four games as a true freshman in 2022, Sabb recorded 28 tackles, four pass deflections and two interceptions in 14 games during the 2023 season, Sabb was expected to start in the Michigan secondary in 2024. Sabb stepped up in the College Football Playoff, highlighted by leading all defensive backs with six tackles in the National Championship Game against Washington.

Obviously, Sabb most major programs would love to add Sabb, but WVU is trying to get involved early on with one of the most highly coveted transfer players.

While Sabb isn’t posting his offers all over social media like most players in his position, notable programs like Alabama, Colorado, Georgia, Florida State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee are just some of the many who have contacted Sabb.
