MORGANTOWN — West Virginia University freshman quarterback Chavas Rawlins will transfer. Rawlins’ high school coach, Andy Pacak, has confirmed the former Monessen (Pa.) High player will be leaving WVU but did not reveal where he will next enroll.
Rawlins had been recruited by former quarterbacks coach Jake Spavital, but Spavital left West Virginia to take a coaching position at Texas A&M.
Another WVU basketball player will transfer to another school. According to Coach Bob Huggins, Sophomore Keaton Miles, a little-used forward with a 2.6 points scoring average, has asked for his release and is leaving the team. Miles makes the fourth player from the 2013 team to transfer.
Rawlins went through spring football and could see he wasn’t going to be listed as the starter in the fall when pre-season depth charts would be revealed.
When Clint Trickett decided to transfer to West Virginia from Florida State, Rawlins saw his stock dip even farther. Trickett is immediately eligible because he graduated at Florida State.
Miles was a basketball starter at the beginning of the 2011-12 season. He was only a freshman, but had the reputation as a 6-foot-8 defensive specialist. But Miles didn’t score. He didn’t even give the impression he could score. His shots were few. His points rarely totaled even five in number. When he steadily lost playing time, Miles didn’t regain the lost playing time because his scoring was always so limited.
