Morgantown, West Virginia – When West Virginia hired former USC offensive coordinator/quarterbacks Graham Harrell to the same position for the Mountaineers, transfer quarterback Jaxson Dart to Morgantown rumors immediately started to heat up.
Dart, a former five star quarterback and the 2020 Gatorade National Player of the Year, passed for 1,353 yards, 9 touchdowns and 5 interceptions as a freshman this past season.
Although Dart has been relatively quiet on social media since his decision to enter the transfer portal became public, it does appear that he will be a package deal with his former USC teammate Michael Trigg, who also decided to transfer following Graham Harrell leaving the school.

In fact, several reports have surfaced that Dart and Trigg will take official visits together to Oklahoma this week and Ole Miss this weekend. Although a visit to West Virginia has not yet been scheduled, many analysts and insiders believe that the Mountaineers also have a a chance at both transfers due to their relationship with Graham Harrell.
If Dart decides to not follow Harrell to West Virginia, Neal Brown will likely offer Tyson Bagent, the Division II Player of the Year at Shepherd. Bagent attended the West Virginia basketball last night with Neal Brown and Mountaineers offensive lineman Doug Nester, and he was expected to visit the football facilities to meet with coaches today.
Lots of moving pieces here so stay tuned!
Prior to taking his visit to Ole Miss later this week, Jaxson Dart and former USC teammate, 4⭐️ TE Michael Trigg, will also be taking an official visit to Oklahoma and new head coach Brent Venables. pic.twitter.com/Gn02oQJvxL
