NC State sophomore wide receiver Travares Copeland tweeted this evening that he will be eligible to play for the Wolfpack immediately.
"God is great even though I transferred from West Virginia University, I don't have to sit out this year," he posted to his twitter account. "I will be playing this year for NC State."
The 5-foot-10, 178-pounder played as a true freshman at West Virginia in four games last 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 been with NC State for workouts since he enrolled in Raleigh for summer school.
"He's here, he's going through summer school already," head coach Dave Doeren said in an interview with The Wolfpacker earlier this summer. "He's enrolled and working out with the team. He's doing a great job whether he's a guy that sits like Jacoby [Brissett] or plays right away, and hopefully that will be the decision."
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.
