Morgantown native Shea Campbell spent the past five years with WVU football. Because of the five-year NCAA Division I window, he can no longer play for the Mountaineers.

But he does have a season of eligibility remaining if he transfers down the Division II or III levels. That is why he has entered the NCAA transfer portal and intends to find an in-state DII home. At those school's, a player has 10 semesters of complete their eligibility. Shea has been in school for nine.

"Obivously I know what I've accomplished and done but that's in the past," Campbell said. "The only thing I can do now is control what I'm going to do next and for me that's just be the best athlete I can be and be the best man I can be for that program and do everything I can to better myself and not lose a step."

He played in 22 games with 7 starts in two playing season with the Mountaineers. This past season he appeared in 11 games and registered 39 tackles with 2 sacks, 6.5 TFLs and two pass breakups. After walking on in 2015 and not seeing any game action in his first three years on campus, the past two years playing for his home state were a dream come true.

"I just feel grateful about it. The last few games we played, I was really humbled by my experience. It gave me a different perspective about the state way more than I already have."
