Morgantown, West Virginia – Following the announcement that West Virginia Mountaineers starting cornerback Daryl Porter Jr. is leaving the program and entering the transfer portal, former West Virginia star and current Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Darius Stills took to social media to give his thoughts on what’s happening in college football.
“The transfer portal is ruining college football,” Stills wrote in a message on Twitter.
His former teammate, Winston Wright responded by saying, “How is doing what’s best for you wrong? We left that wasn’t starting bro? Be real, you know what’s going on family.”
Stills replied, “I’m not even just talking about WVU bro, I’m just talking about NCAA football in general.”
Although it’s unclear what exactly the issues are within the program, it’s very obvious that there are major problems within the West Virginia football program after many starters have left the team.
Typically, players that enter the transfer portal are frustrated with a lack of playing time, but at West Virginia, starters are leaving the team.
Despite this, Neal Brown and director of athletics Shane Lyons seem to think this is happening everywhere. That is partially true. All programs are impacted by the transfer portal, but it’s particularly bad at West Virginia University right now.
