Mountaineers Land a Defensive Line Transfer From Michigan

Earlier this week Mountaineer Sports reported that Michigan defensive lineman Reuben Jones has a visit planned to WVU. Now it’s official, the defensive line transfer is headed to Morgantown.

Before visiting West Virginia, Jones had already been to Toledo. Almost three months ago Jones announced he plans on leaving Michigan.

One of the things that might have attracted Jones to WVU was the possibility of reuniting with former Michigan teammate, cornerback Keith Washington.

Jones was a three-star recruit coming out of high school. He said that he planned on making his announcement soon after the visit to WVU and it turns out he was being completely honest when he said that.

Despite some attrition, Neal Brown and staff have done a good job scrambling and adding not only Jones, but also wide receiver George Campbell from Florida and safety Alonzo Addae from New Hampshire as transfers.

As a graduate transfer, Jones will be able to come in and play right away.

Welcome to Morgantown, Reuben. Mountaineer Nation looks forward to seeing you on the field.
