Football Announces Mid-Year Transfer

A week of speculation can now be put to rest as WVU has officially announced that former Michigan OL Kyle Bosch has transferred to WVU.

Bosch made headlines last week when he tweeted a verse from “Country Roads” leading many to speculate that he was on his way to Morgantown. Bosch was a 4 star OL out of high school and was recruited by then WVU OL coach Bill Bedenbaugh.

It has been reported that Bosch did not want to transfer from Michigan but was not able to come to terms with new UM head coach Jim Harbaugh. Bosch was also contacted by Oklahoma once it was announced he would not be returning to Michigan. However, Bosch also has a relationship with current WVU OL coach Ron Crook who recruited Kyle to Stanford.

Bosch is the second Michigan transfer to join the Mountaineers this season. 4 star linebacker Mike Ferns also transferred from the Wolverines to the Mountaineers back in December. It is not immediately clear what Bosch’s eligibility status will be this coming season. However, as of now he is enrolled at WVU for the spring semester.

Per WVU press release:

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – West Virginia University football coach Dana Holgorsen announced that offensive lineman Kyle Bosch transferred from Michigan, signed a grant-in-aid and is enrolled at WVU for the 2015 spring semester.
