MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — WVU defensive lineman Akheem Mesidor has entered the transfer portal.
Neal Brown announced the move Thursday in an unscheduled press conference, noting that he was shocked when he learned of the player’s decision earlier this week.
“Candidly, I was…very surprised,” Brown said.
Brown added that he was hurt by the move, but not angry or upset.
The Ottawa, Ontario, Canada native played two seasons with the Old Gold and Blue, appearing in 22 games. He amassed 70 total tackles in that span, including 7.5 tackles for loss and six sacks. In his freshman season in 2020, he led the Mountaineers with five sacks.
