Morgantown, West Virginia – Jason “Truck” Edwards, redshirt sophomore running back from Bluefield, West Virginia, has entered his name into the transfer portal and is no longer on the West Virginia Mountaineers roster.
Edwards, who initially committed to Pitt before transferring to West Virginia, was a four-year letterman at Bluefield High, a Class 2A all-state first team player and helped Bluefield win a West Virginia Class 2A championship during his senior season in high school.
Edwards was redshirted at Pitt in 2018 and didn’t see any game action for the Mountaineers last season. Edwards’ recent social media message perhaps gives some insight on why he decided to transfer: “All I need is an opportunity to show and prove.”
