01:26 PM ET 05.02 | Former Florida State quarterback Clint Trickett will be transferring to West Virginia, where he will be able to compete for a starting job for the 2013 season. Trickett is graduating from Florida State this month, and will have two remaining seasons of eligibility as a graduate student. The Mountaineers quarterbacking situation is in flux after the departure of Geno Smith, with Ford Childress and Paul Millard battling for the starting spot. Trickett could have a good shot of taking the starting job for the 2013 season, but will have to compete for it. He chose the Mountaineers over South Florida and Auburn.

Ciint Triikett. Sounds like the perfect West Virginia name.

So did the Brokeback Mountaineers outbid Aubie? Or are they still under a "post-Cam" microscope and not yet bidding on players again?

Whoa, haven't seen you around in quite a while! Hope everything has been going well.

Trickett has connections at WVA. Aubie was a feint.

Trickett's father played at WVU in the 70s and coached there for several years in the 2000s. Clint lived in Morgantown for 6 or 7 years.

So given all of that, plus the vacancy at QB with Geno Smith's departure, and given Holgorsen's success with QBs wherever he has been, it's a no brainer for Trickett to transfer there.
