According to the West Virginia University site, wvusports.com, news broke last night that the West Virginia Mountaineers have added a six-foot-four-inch wide receiver to help compete with the 2019 guys if his petition to play immediately is allowed. Sean Ryan, a sophomore from Temple, will sign a grant-in-aid and will transfer to the Mountaineers.
In 2018 as a freshman at Temple, Ryan played in 11 games, catching 12 passes for 162 yards and one touchdown. In Temple’s bowl game against Duke, Ryan caught 3 passes for 44 yards. The team will petition for Ryan to be immediately eligible but at worst, Ryan would sit out the 2019 and still have 3 years remaining.
Ryan was a 3-star prospect coming out of Erasmus Hall in Brooklyn, New York and he held offers from Boston College, Maryland, Nebraska, Purdue, Rutgers and Syracuse. He didn’t have an offer but he was also recruited by the Alabama Crimson Tide and Brent Venables of the Clemson Tigers, two teams who played for the National Championship in 2018.
