The quarterback competition at West Virginia just got interesting.

Florida State transfer Clint Trickett, the son of former assistant Rick Trickett, announced on Twitter this morning his intention to finish his athletic and academic career at West Virginia.

Trickett was on hand at the team's Blue-Gold spring game April 20 where neither quarterback -- junior Paul Millard nor redshirt freshman Ford Childress -- exhibited he was the runaway favorite to succeed Geno Smith.

Trickett spent most of his career at FSU backing up two first round picks - Christian Ponder and E.J. Manuel, who went No. 16 overall last weekend to the Buffalo Bills.

He can play immediately because he will graduate this month with one year left of eligibility.

He said on Twitter: "It's official, I will finish my academic/athletic career at WVU. This is a dream come true to be playin for the state I love. #CountryRoads"
