It has not yet been confirmed that the players have departed the team. Neither player nor the West Virginia Athletic Department have returned request for comment as of Wednesday evening.

Arlia made seven catches for 43 yards at slot receiver last season.

[UPDATE] West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen confirmed Thursday morning that both have left the program and intend to transfer. He cited playing time as the reason and said he will release them anywhere they want to go.
