According to a report from Bob Putnam of the Tampa Bay Times, former Florida State wide receiver George Campbell has made public his intent to transfer to WVU and join the Mountaineer football program. His uncle, Ahmad Jackson, indicated to the Tampa Bay Times today that his nephew would be flying to Morgantown to enroll this morning.
Campbell spent the last four years in Tallahassee, redshirting for the 2016 season. He was ranked among the best in the country as a high school athlete and was considered a five-star prospect by multiple outlets. In his three seasons of play, he suffered several injuries that kept him off the field and caused struggles in battles for playing time. Campbell made 13 catches for 206 yards in those limited snaps with 6 of those catches coming in 2017 and totaling 122 yards.
Penn State was the original destination that Campbell had selected after he announced his transfer in February. However, his plans apparently changed last month and his recruitment was reopened. The Clearwater, Florida native will be eligible immediately as a graduate transfer and has one year of play remaining.
