MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – A year after bolstering its defensive line with graduate transfers, West Virginia is doing it again.
Reuben Jones, a 6-foot-4, 250-pound defensive end, is transferring to WVU after completing his degree at Michigan. Jones has one year of eligibility remaining.
He was a reserve in his time at Michigan, playing in 16 games over three seasons. He had seven career tackles with the Wolverines. Jones, a native of Lakeland, Fla., actually chose Michigan over West Virginia as a three-star high school recruit.
While it’s a new coaching staff, the Mountaineers are surely hoping Jones can provide the same impact along the line that Kenny Bigelow and Jabril Robinson did last season.
