Former West Virginia quarterback Chris Chugunov is transferring to Ohio State and plans to join the football team, according to a report by Allan Taylor of The Dominion Post.

Chugunov will be on scholarship for the Buckeyes, according to Taylor's report.
An Ohio State spokesperson said the Buckeyes "don't have any additions to the roster at this time," and Ohio State is currently at its full allotment of 85 scholarships for the 2018 season. Taylor, however, reported that Chugunov has not yet enrolled, which could mean that Chugunov will join the team for the 2019 season.
Chugunov appeared in five games for the Mountaineers last season, starting the final two games of the year, completing 43 of 90 passing attempts for 536 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions. He announced his intention to transfer from West Virginia in March, and West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen said this spring that Chugunov was on track to graduate in May.
The 6-foot-1, 203-pound quarterback from Skillman, New Jersey, would be a redshirt junior this season and has two remaining years of eligibility.
