Wednesday was relatively busy for West Virginia in the transfer portal. According to reports, the Mountaineers lost defensive tackle Quay Mays to the portal and also extended an offer to former Iowa State Cyclone Latrell Bankston.
Rivals reported yesterday that Mays, a transfer from junior college this season, entered his name into the portal after just one season at WVU. Also yesterday, Bankston announced in a since-deleted tweet that WVU had extended him a scholarship offer.
