Grad transfer QB enrolls at Ohio State
Earlier this month, it was reported that Ohio State was adding a graduate transfer quarterback. Now everything is official.
Former West Virginia QB Chris Chugunov has officially enrolled at OSU, making him a Buckeye. Chugunov first announced his decision to leave West Virginia in February. Less than two weeks ago, he announced his plans to come to Ohio State.
Chugunov has two years of eligibility remaining and will wear No. 4 at OSU. There is some uncertainty regarding Chugunov’s scholarship status. The original report announcing Chugunov had selected OSU stated he would be on scholarship. That same day, however, an Ohio State spokesman told Eleven Warriors that the Buckeyes were already at their full allotment of 85 scholarships for 2018.
Chugunov appeared in eight games at West Virginia, completing 45-of-90 passes for 551 yards and three touchdowns. He started in the final two games of the 2017 season, stepping in for an injured Will Grier. In the class of 2015, Chugunov was rated in the top 30 players out of New Jersey by ESPN and Rivals.
Also: Former West Virginia QB Chris Chugunov has joined the @OhioStateFB team as a graduate transfer. He will work on a master’s in hospitality management after earning his bachelor’s degree from WVU in finance. He will have two years of eligibility. https://t.co/YQNnjUu3yD
