Garrett Greene is the future starting quarterback of the West Virginia Mountaineers. Jarret Doege will likely start the next two seasons and Greene will learn under him and play sparingly in blowout games. In 2022, as a Junior, the team will belong to Greene.
That’s the plan anyway.
Garrett Greene was recently contacted by Mike Norvell, the new Head Coach of the Florida State Seminoles. Greene is a four star quarterback from Tallahassee, so it only makes sense that Norvell would make contact with a very talented player in his new backyard.
FSU's new regime contacted Chiles QB Garrett Greene, but Garrett is committed to West Virginia. Is taking his official visit there this weekend and signing next week. FSU and West Virginia open their 2020 season Sept. 5 in Atlanta.

Shockingly, Greene was completely ignored by the previous Seminoles staff under former Head Coach Willie Taggart, even though Greene has shined during his career at Lawton Chiles High School in Tallahassee.
Florida State recently lost a four star quarterback in high school senior Jeff Sims, who de-committed from the Seminoles leaving the team with just two eligible scholarship quarterbacks on the roster (James Blackman and Louisville transfer Jordan Travis).
West Virginia Head Coach Neal Brown visited Tallahassee on December 5th for an in-home visit with Greene. Greene posted a picture of himself with Brown on Twitter and wrote “Family.”

Greene is a very solid commit for the Mountaineers and although he’s certainly humbled by Norvell reaching out, he is visiting Morgantown this weekend on an official visit and will certainly sign with West Virginia next week on Signing Day. Although many players flip commitments before Signing Day (see: Lamy Constant), Garrett Greene will be a West Virginia Mountaineer.
West Virginia meets the Florida State Seminoles to open the season next year in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta, Georgia on September 5th.
