Suspended Florida QB Grier transfers to West Virginia
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) Suspended former Florida quarterback Will Grier is transferring to West Virginia.
Grier will sit out next season to fulfill NCAA transfer rules and be eligible to play in 2017. He will have two years of eligibility remaining.
Grier was suspended in October for one year by the NCAA for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. He said the failed test was because of an over-the-counter supplement he used. He appealed, but the NCAA upheld the suspension. West Virginia spokesman Mike Montoro says it has yet to be determined if Grier's suspension will carry over to 2017.
Grier played six games last season for the Gators as a redshirt freshman.
