Tezeno transfers to FCS program to ‘get more playing time’

West Virginia offensive lineman Tyler Tezeno (71), shown here during his redshirt freshman season, is transferring to an FCS program.


MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Sophomore offensive lineman Tyler Tezeno, who was vying to crack the rotation at West Virginia, has left the program and plans to transfer, a source within the athletics department confirmed Tuesday.

Tezeno announced via Instagram on Monday that he was transferring to Sam Houston State, an FCS program about an hour from where he became a 5A all-state player at Klein Collins High.

“Nothing negative about him leaving—he just wants to go somewhere he can get more playing time,” the source said.

Rated a three-star prospect by Rivals, Tezeno signed with West Virginia in 2013 over offers from LSU, Arizona State, Northwestern, Indiana and Rice. He was the eighth-rated center prospect in the nation that season.

Tezeno redshirted in 2013, played sparingly last season and was listed as the second-team left guard behind junior Adam Pankey exiting spring drills. The 6-foot-4, 317-pound would be eligible immediately at Sam Houston State with three seasons to play.
