Jovani Haskins has all the talent in the world, but could not stay out of trouble while in Morgantown. Haskins, who was charged a few months ago with three misdemeanors including reckless driving, fleeing from an officer and driving on the left side of the road, finished this season with only 4 catches and 18 yards.
Moments ago, Haskins decided to enter the Transfer Portal and leave West Virginia University.
Haskins, originally from Bergenfield, New Jersey, transferred from the University of Miami after redshirting there his Freshman year. He sat out a year due to NCAA requirements and then backed up Trevon Wesco, current New York Jets player, two years ago. Haskins finished with 16 catches, 148 yards and a touchdown in 12 games in a reserve/shared role behind Wesco. This year, however, did not go as well for Haskins, who was expected to have an outstanding career with the Mountaineers.

Neal Brown loved what he saw from Haskins during Summer practices: “Jovani Haskins is ready to take the next step and be a go-to guy. He’s had a great offseason and has all the skills you’re looking for at that position.” Unfortunately that never happened and now Haskins is headed elsewhere.
