Former WV Player of the Year in the Transfer Portal

Former 247Sports 3-star defensive back J.J. Roberts, a Gatorade State Player of the Year for West Virginia in 2019, has entered the NCAA Transfer Portal.

Roberts has spent the last three seasons with the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. He will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.


The talented defensive back is a native of Hurricane, West Virginia. He is the nephew of the host of MoJack’s Podcast, and is said to be highly interested in joining the Mountaineers. This would be a huge addition for WVU who struggled mightily in the secondary in 2022.

Roberts finished his Wake Forest career with 44 total tackles, 3 forced fumbles, and 1 interception.
