Dillon Spalding, the former WVU wide receiver who decided to enter the Transfer Portal on May 17th, has decided to transfer to James Madison University. Spalding, a 6’2 210 Redshirt Freshman Wide Receiver out of Lorton, Virginia, was clearly searching for more playing time and will likely find it in the Colonial Athletic Association.

Spalding did make a tremendous touchdown reception from Trey Lowe as time expired during the Gold Blue Spring game this year and appeared to have potential to get playing time in a depleted wide receivers corps. However, he obviously felt that he had a greater opportunity elsewhere.

Good luck at JMU, Dillon! Interestingly enough, West Virginia plays JMU on the first game of the season so we’ll see Dillon back in Morgantown soon.
