According to a report from Allan Taylor of the Dominion Post in Morgantown, West Virginia, former Mountaineers quarterback Chris Chugunov has transferred to Ohio State and is waiting to enroll.

Chugunov (6-1 203) is a graduate transfer with two years of eligibility remaining.

Ohio State has not yet confirmed the news and of right now there are no roster changes to report.

Last season as a redshirt sophomore, Chugunov was called on in West Virginia’s final three games due to an injury to starting quarterback Will Grier. All three games turned out to be losses for WVU. In those three games — against Texas, at Oklahoma, and then in the bowl game against Utah — Chugunov completed 33 of 74 passes for 455 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

For the year, he completed 43 of 90 passes (.478) for 536 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions.

Chugunov was originally a 3-star prospect with offers from West Virginia and Western Michigan.

Currently, Ohio State is sitting at 85 scholarships, which means they are at their full allotment.

Adding a graduate transfer quarterback was always a possibility for OSU following the loss of Joe Burrow to LSU back in May. Doing it two weeks before the first game, however, is a bit unusual.

We will update this story if OSU confirms the report moving forward.

  1. So unless someone leaves at this late date, he’s a walk-on. And another arm in camp and practice.
