WVU RB Owen Chafin Enters Transfer Portal

Published

WVU running back Owen Chafin has entered the transfer portal, he announced on Twitter Saturday evening. Chafin is the second player to enter the transfer portal in as many days, as wide receiver Mike Evans entered the portal yesterday.

Chafin had been with WVU since 2018, but didn’t see a minute of game action during his three years in Morgantown, likely leading to his decision to transfer. He wasn’t set to play a significant role in the run game this year, even after the departure of last year’s starter Leddie Brown to the NFL.

The running back room is led by Tony Mathis Jr. and Justin Johnson Jr., who both figure to see significant playing time this season with Mathis as the feature back. In addition to that, Jaylen Anderson and converted tight-end CJ Donaldson have been receiving praise from the coaches during training camp.

Chafin came to WVU as a three-star recruit from Huntington, West Virginia. He was a three-year starter at both running back and linebacker for Spring Valley High School. During his highschool years, he picked up a lot of state accolades including being two-time All-State, four-time All-Tri State and three-time all-conference athlete.
