In two seasons at Florida State, CLint Trickett completed 62.3% of his passes for 947 yards, seven touchdowns and four interceptions.

Former Florida State quarterback Clint Trickett took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon to announce that he has decided to transfer to West Virginia.

“It's official, I will finish my academic/athletic career at WVU,” Trickett said on his official Twitter account. “This is a dream come true to be playin for the state I love. #CountryRoads”

Trickett is set to start up classes a little later this month, and will be eligible to compete for the Mountaineers’ starting job right away due to his status as a graduate student. Junior Paul Millard and freshman Ford Childress are the other quarterbacks expected to compete for starting job which was left vacant by Geno Smith.

In two seasons at Florida State, Trickett completed 62.3% of his passes for 947 yards, seven touchdowns and four interceptions.

Trickett chose the Mountaineers over Auburn and South Florida.
