Kwantel Raines has officially entered the Transfer Portal and intends to leave West Virginia University. Raines, the Redshirt Freshman Safety out of Aliquippa, PA, was absent in West Virginia’s final home game against Oklahoma State.
Neal Brown, on his weekly press conference, said that Raines “didn’t dress and is trying to figure out what he’s going to do.” Brown added, “I haven’t talked to him.”
This didn’t sound great for Raines returning to the team and the loss of yet another player in the already-thin secondary is difficult for the Mountaineers.
Raines was a four star prospect out of high school by ESPN, Rivals and 247 Sports. He was the 7th best prospect in the state of Pennsylvania according to 247 Sports.
