Hargrett To Transfer

The crowded competition in West Virginia's backfield eased just a bit on Monday when it was revealed that Daquan Hargrett will transfer.

Daquan Hargrett was absent from West Virginia's third practice of the fall on Monday, and head coach Dana Holgorsen confirmed that the redshirt sophomore will transfer.

Hargrett redshirted in 2009 and played in ten of WVU's 13 games in 2010. He carried the ball just twice, gaining 14 yards. He had a very good start to spring drills in 2011, but saw fewer carries over the latter half of the practice session.

West Virginia still has a number of candidates for the running back spots, although losing a player of Hargrett's ability is never a good thing. Vernard Roberts, Trey Johnson, Dustin Garrison and Andrew Buie are also vying for playing time at the position. The big back spot is similarly crowded, with Matt Lindamood, Shawne Alston, Ryan Clarke and Ricky Kovatch battling for snaps.

Hargrett signed with West Virginia in 2008 over offers from Iowa State, Minnesota, Clemson, USF and others.
