WVU Offers Marshall Transfer DL Opportunity to Stay in West Virginia

WVU hopes Marshall transfer defensive lineman Elijah Alston doesn’t even have to leave the state of West Virginia to find his next college program.

The Mountaineers were one of the first schools to offer Alston on Wednesday, looking to add more depth to their defense line. Alston is leaving Marshall after spending four years in Huntington.

West Virginia is far from the only big brand program who feels Alston is ready for major conference football. He already has offers from Arizona State, Cincinnati and Kansas among others.

Alston recorded 45 total tackles, six sacks and two forced fumbles during the 2023 season for the Thundering Herd. He has 104 overall tackles so far in his career.

The Chesapeake, Virginia native has two years left of eligibility.

WVU added a Marshall transferee last off-season in wide receiver EJ Horton.

You can find Alston and other transfer players listed on our partner the Portal Report’s database.
