On its official Twitter account Tuesday morning, WVU confirmed that Grier will be eligible to play in the Sept 3 neutral-site opener versus Virginia Tech in Landover, Maryland. Coming off a solid spring, Grier is expected to start at quarterback for the Mountaineers.
At Florida, Grier was suspended in Oct. of 2015 for one full year after testing positive for performance enhancing drugs. Grier had appealed the NCAA’s initial decision, but that maneuver was shot down.
It was reported in mid-December of the same year that Grier would resume workouts with the Gators; a couple of days later, Grier decided to transfer from the UF football program and ultimately landed at WVU.
