Quarterback Clint Trickett to transfer from Florida State (to WVU?)

Florida State’s quarterback competition took a large step toward being decided Wednesday afternoon, as junior Clint Trickett asked for and was granted a release by the university. He intends to transfer, finishing his career elsewhere.

“After a long meeting with Clint, he expressed he’d like to explore another playing opportunity, and I’ve signed off on his wish,” coach Jimbo Fisher said in a news release.

Trickett is rumored to be interested in visiting USF and West Virginia, among other schools. Although he spent his high school years in Tallahassee after his father was hired as an assistant at FSU in 2007, the signal-caller was born in West Virginia. Both USF and West Virginia are in need of experienced quarterbacks after B.J. Daniels and Geno Smith left the respective schools after last season.
