Morgantown, West Virginia – Immediately after it was announced that Graham Harrell would be the next offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach for the West Virginia Mountaineers, USC’s starting quarterback and five star prospect, Jaxson Dart, announced that he would enter the transfer portal.
Minutes later, Michael Trigg, a 6’4 245 pound four star player out of Tampa, Florida, posted on his social media that he intends to transfer from USC as well.
I’m in the transfer portal …

Trigg, who finished this season at USC having played in six games, making four starts for the Trojans. He caught seven passes for 109 yards and a touchdown during his freshman season.
Trigg was the #4 ranked tight end prospect in the 2021 class and committed to play for USC in both football and basketball. However, he suffered a gruesome knee injury during the football season that sidelined him for the remainder of the season.
When Michael Trigg is healthy, he could be an incredible addition for a West Virginia team that lacks depth at the tight end position. Following his former offensive coordinator and potentially his starting quarterback makes an awful lot of sense for him.
