JMU transfers Amos and Atariwa joining UVA
HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) - JMU’s Adeeb Atariwah and D’Angelo Amos entered the transfer portal earlier this week and have already found a new home staying in Virginia.
Both grad-transfers will suit up for the Virginia Cavaliers for their final seasons of eligibility.
Atariwah, a defensive-lineman, announced his decision to enter the transfer portal Friday, before tweeting Sunday he’d be playing in Charlottesville this season.
Atariwa had 52 tackles and 13 tackles for loss in his 2019 campaign with James Madison.
Later in the day Sunday, UVA announced Amos’ intent to play for the Cavaliers in 2020 after he tweeted he’d be entering the transfer portal Wednesday night.
Amos played safety and returned punts as a Duke. He was a member of the all-CAA first team in 2019 as both a safety and punt returner.
UVA is scheduled to open up its season Sept. 11 against VMI.
