Ex-Florida State QB Clint Trickett transferring to West Virginia

Former Florida State quarterback Clint Trickett will transfer to West Virginia, where he will join the race to replace Geno Smith.

Trickett announced the move Wednesday on his Twitter account.

Trickett, a graduate student, is immediately eligible. He had been expected to compete for the starting spot with the Seminoles, but in the spring, he fell behind redshirt freshman Jameis Winston. Trickett announced two weeks ago that he intended to transfer.

He jumps into another quarterback competition at West Virginia. Freshman Ford Childress and junior Paul Millard were unable to take control of the position this spring, and Trickett may be able to win the job in the fall.

Trickett completed 66 of his 106 passes for 947 yards and seven touchdowns in limited action backing up Christian Ponder and E.J. Manuel with Seminoles.

His father Rick, now the offensive line coach at Florida State, previously worked at West Virginia.
