Could WVU be in the market for another 4-star QB?

Ever since the clock struck midnight on 2022, the West Virginia football program, specifically the offensive side of the ball has seen a lot of change — and it could be in store for more change in the coming weeks.

On Dec. 31, quarterback Jarret Doege announced his plans to transfer which led to an immediate opening in the quarterback room. Freshman Nicco Marchiol from Chandler, Arizona, is a four-star quarterback and has the potential to be the quarterback of the future for the Mountaineers. In his senior season, Marchiol passed for 2,690 yards and 37 touchdowns, while rushing for another six on the season.

While Marchiol is already set to compete with Garrett Greene and Will Crowder, keep an eye on a new name that could be coming to Morgantown.

Earlier today, former USC offensive coordinator Graham Harrell was hired by West Virginia as their new co-offensive coordinator. Minutes later, USC quarterback Jaxson Dart announced he was entering his name in the transfer portal. With USC starting quarterback Kedon Slovis already transferring, and your new head coach being Lincoln Riley, if Dart is not following his coordinator, why else would he be entering his name into the portal.

In six games this season, Dart passed for 1,353 yards and nine touchdowns, while completing 61.9% of his pass attempts. Dart also rushed for two touchdowns and threw five interceptions.

Obviously nothing is set in stone and a lot could change, but there is certainly a possibility West Virginia could at least be in the conversation to land dart. And the best part is, if Dart commits to the Mountaineers, he will be playing Slovis week one in the Backyard Brawl.
