Former West Virginia wide receiver Travares Copeland announced his intentions to transfer to NC State today via his twitter account.
"Well I can say I love me some red," Copeland posted to his twitter. "I will be playing for North Carolina State for the next three-four years."
The 5-foot-10, 178-pounder played as a true freshman for the Mountaineers in four games this fall, and recorded 10 catches for 55 yards. He started the contest against Kansas State, who was ranked No. 4 in the country at the time, and had his best game against TCU, when he tallied six catches for 40 yards. However, he left the Mountaineers in early November, and has posted on twitter that he intends to petition the NCAA for the ability to play immediately with the Wolfpack.
When coming out of Port St. Lucie (Fla.) Treasure Coast High School, the three-star Copeland was ranked as the nation's No. 28 athlete and the No. 53 prospect in Florida's class of 2012.
Copeland, who was a prep quarterback, was named second-team All-State as a senior utility player and passed for 1,096 yards and 13 scores, while he rushed for another 497 yards and six touchdowns.
He took his official visit to Raleigh this weekend, and marks the final weekend's fourth visitor to commit to NC State, joining Bryant Shirreffs, defensive tackle Monty Nelson and wide receiver Jumichael Ramos. He is also the second player to transfer to NC State under new head coach Dave Doeren, joining fellow Florida native Jacoby Brissett, a four star quarterback in the class of 2011.
The Wolfpacker will have more on this breaking story.
