Florida State wide receiver set to transfer to WVU

MORGANTOWN, W.Va.–West Virginia is set to receive Florida State graduate transfer George Campbell.

The five-star wide receiver spent four seasons with the Seminoles, including a redshirt year. During his tenure in Tallahassee, he caught 13 passes for 206 yards.

However, the 6-foot-4, 200-pound wide out has been plagued with injuries during his college career.

In 2015, he played as a true freshman but redshirted the next year after undergoing surgery to remove a loose piece of bone in his hip.

Once again, Campbell was sidelined in 2017 after complications from the first surgery arose.

Originally, he committed to Penn State but last week he decided to retract that commitment.

Campbell would be immediately eligible to play this coming fall, which benefits the Mountaineers after losing David Sills and Gary Jennings and the departure of Marcus Simms.

The Tampa Bay Times first broke news of the wide out’s decision.
