The WVU quarterback competition just got a little more crowded.
Clint Trickett, the son of former WVU assistant coach and current Florida State assistant Rick Trickett, will head to Morgantown and throw his hat into the ring to try and become the heir apparent to now New York Jet Geno Smith.
Trickett has been at Florida State the past three seasons and has seen action in 17 games. He was a backup to E.J. Manuel, who was the first QB taken in last week's NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills in the first round. Manuel was a surprise pick ahead of Smith.
Trickett's father was well-respected at WVU for his work guiding offensive linemen. The younger Trickett lived in Morgantown when his father was coaching at WVU. He also resided in the state when Rick Trickett was the head coach at Glenville State College.
