The Mountaineers defensive line took a serious hit when Adam Shuler announced he would be transferring from the program. And we finally have his destination: The Florida Gators.
I will be going to ….The University of Florida!!! 🐊 Don’t ask no questions 👌🏾😎 #ShulerGang back home #88

Shuler was a productive player last season, playing in 12 games, starting ten of them, and just missing the Iowa State game, while racking up 37 tackles. His 8 tackles for loss finished third on the team, and also had three sacks, which was tied for second on the team.
Shuler is a graduate transfer who will be eligible immediately and joins new head coach Dan Mullen who is trying to turn around a program following the firing of Jim McElwain.
It’s an obvious fit for Shuler, who is from Longwood, Florida, but was not nearly the prospect he’s turned into coming out of high school, when he held no offers from the Sunshine State.
The Mountaineers have done their best to beef up the defensive line with the addition of former 5-star prospect and USC defensive lineman Kenny Bigelow, who is eligible to play this fall.
West Virginia opens up the season Saturday, September 1st against Tennessee in Charlotte, North Carolina.
