Last month, WVU offensive lineman Junior Uzebu announced his intentions of transferring from the Mountaineer Football program. Today, Uzebu has officially announced that he has found his new home.

In a tweet sent out this evening, Uzebu confirms he will be transferring to Vanderbilt University.

“Thank you to all the schools that reached out and spoke with me over the last few weeks. After careful consideration, prayer, & speaking with my family I have come to the conclusion that the best option for me not only as an ATHLETE but as a STUDENT is to commit to Vanderbilt University!”

Uzebu saw limited action in 2019, and lost the starting left tackle job to Brandon Yates after being suspended for the season opener.
