04:49 PM ET 04.17 | After Jameis Winston looked every bit the part of freshman sensation in spring ball, Florida State quarterback Clint Trickett will find a new school - possibly West Virginia or South Florida.

Trickett might have expected to play serious snaps after the graduation of likely NFL pick E.J. Manuel, but Winston, considered the top dual-threat quarterback in his recruiting class, lived up to all the hype in Florida State's spring game this weekend. Now, just days later, Trickett is headed elsewhere.

Since Trickett will graduate in June, he'll be able to play right away at another school as a graduate transfer. Over his career, he's 66-for-96 with 947 yards, seven touchdowns, and four picks. Former FSU assistant Willie Taggart, now the head coach at USF, is expected to make a play for Trickett's services. West Virginia is also believed to be in the mix as they try to replace Geno Smith.

That's the spirit! When the going gets tough, quit.

Arky bound? He sounds like someone Bielema would be interested in.

Too bad. Trickett was pretty good when given the opportunity.

That said, it's time for Jameis Winston.

Why spend your last year of eligibility on the pine?
