Just days after their 24-21 win over Army in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl, West Virginia loses walk-on redshirt senior running back Lorenzo Dorr to the transfer portal, a source told Mountaineer Maven.
Dorr began his collegiate career at West Virginia Wesleyan before making the move to come to West Virginia. During his three year stint in Morgantown, Dorr played a major role on the offensive scout team and saw some action on special teams. He finished his Mountaineer career with 10 yards on just six carries but will now have the opportunity to go somewhere else for his final year of eligibility and gain more playing time.
Dorr was named to the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll and graduated this past August with a bachelor’s degree in sport and exercise psychology.

Wheeling University is a Division II school formally known as Wheeling Jesuit University. The football program is relatively young having started in 2018.
Jackson came to West Virginia in 2018 as a walk-on and has been a part of the Mountaineers’ scout team during his three years on campus. This is probably a good move for him so that he can go somewhere that he will have an opportunity to play and potentially earn the starting job. As a senior at Kent Island High School in Stevensville, Maryland, Jackson tossed for 2,174 yards and was named to the All-Bayside Conference First Team.
In the spring of 2019, West Virginia head coach Neal Brown continuously gave Jackson praise for the work he was putting in on the field and in the weight room. Brown specifically pointed out that Jackson threw the deep balls the best of any quarterback on the roster during a few of those 2019’s spring practices, noting that the rest of them had to get better.
