Ex-Florida State QB Clint Trickett Transfers to West Virginia

Randy ChambersAnalyst IMay 1, 2013

Clint Trickett has been searching for a new school this past week, and that journey has come to an end in West Virginia. According to

Paul Millard, Ford Childress and Chavas Rawlins are all inexperienced.

Trickett is also a little wet behind the ears, but he did learn from two NFL quarterbacks in Christian Ponder and EJ Manuel. He also started a couple of games for Florida State, throwing a combined 66 passes in his career.

The former Seminole is from the Florida area but has family in West Virginia, according to the Harvey report. Comfortable in his new surroundings, Trickett should also fit well in Dana Holgorsen's system. Not much of an athlete, but he gets rid of the ball quickly and did show above-average accuracy when having time in the pocket.

This is far from a guarantee that Trickett will be the starting quarterback. Childress brings the excitement with his dual-threat ability, while Millard has been in the system for the past couple of seasons. However, the possibility of seeing the field is much greater than it was back at Florida State with Jameis Winston running the show. This also makes things easier for the coaching staff, as you can never go wrong with an extra quarterback.

The quarterback controversy in West Virginia just got a lot more interesting.
