According to Rivals, WVU linebacker Charlie Benton has entered the NCAA transfer portal.

Benton came to WVU in 2018 from Butler Community College, where he was a 3-star prospect in the JUCO ranks. With a plethora of excitement surrounding him, his career at WVU was derailed after he suffered a season ending injury in the 2018 season opener.

For his career, he only registered two tackles, as he saw no playing time in 2019 or 2020, per ESPN.


Benton will be exercising his extra year of eligibility that all athletes received due to COVID-19.
