Morgantown, West Virginia – Today at 3:33PM could be a huge turning point in the future of West Virginia football.
That’s when former four star linebacker Amari Gainer announces his transfer commitment. Gainer, the active leader for the Florida State Seminoles with 210 career tackles, is set to decide between West Virginia, North Carolina and Alabama, who has made a late push for the talented linebacker.
Neal Brown visited Gainer at his home in Tallahassee and Gainer followed that up with an official visit to Morgantown weeks later. Gainer has also visited Chapel Hill, North Carolina, but all indications appear that West Virginia is the choice at 3:33 this afternoon.

Gainer was a high school teammate of West Virginia quarterback Garrett Greene at Lawton Chiles High School in Tallahassee, Florida, and Greene posted the following message on social media to his former teammate: “Let’s run it back!”

Gainer is not only an outstanding player on the field, he’s also a very respected veteran who would add an immediate presence in the West Virginia locker room. The Mountaineers desperately need a playmaker on the defensive side of the ball and Gainer would be the absolute perfect addition to the West Virginia defense.
Stay tuned at 3:33PM this afternoon! There’s a very good chance that the Mountaineers will get a whole lot better today!
