It’s been long speculated by Mountaineer Sports that Jack Allison was on the brink of entering the transfer portal. Today Allison made it official with an announcement on Twitter.
The junior Mountaineer quarterback did it the only way he knows how:
With complete class.
Thank you for everything Morgantown! I’ll always support The Mountaineers! I’ve now officially entered the NCAA transfer portal.

Jack Allison started his college career at the University of Miami. He was brought in by Canes coach Al Golden. A coaching change to Mark Richt doomed Allison.
“He loves Miami. We all love Miami, but the whole direction of the program is they want a running quarterback – a dual-threat quarterback,’’ Allison’s father said, per the Miami Herald. “They want a different wrinkle in their offense.”
Then when Allison transferred to WVU he was beaten out for the starting job by Will Grier, who transferred in from Florida. After Grier graduated, Allison hoped to win the starting job but was beaten out by another big-time transfer, Austin Kendall.
