2023 WVU Football Signee Corey McIntyre Plans to Cause Havoc



The latest member of the West Virginia football team was born with Mountaineer blood pumping through his veins.

Did his father being a former Mountaineer influence defensive lineman Corey McIntyre’s decision to sign with WVU? McIntyre answers this and other questions while speaking with WV Sports Now.

“He wasn’t an influence in picking WVU, only because he wanted me to make my own path and told me about picking somewhere else, but it felt like home for picking WVU,” McIntyre offered when mentioning being a WVU legacy. His dad played at West Virginia from 1998 to 2002.

So if his father didn’t influence him, what did cause the three-star defensive lineman out of Treasure Coast High School product in Port Saint Lucie, Florida to feel West Virginia is the right place for him. Being a legacy may have been a nice bonus, but it’s the love from the coaching staff, the family atmosphere the WVU program has been building and the sense that he was really wanted that sealed the deal for McIntyre.

Growing up in Florida, his dad also didn’t cause him to grow up a fan of a school he confesses he didn’t know much about prior to being recruited.

Regardless of his reasons, the addition of a player like McIntyre bolsters an already solid 2023 recruiting class and helps secure the future of the defensive line. Listed at 6’4”, 280 pounds, McIntyre deserves himself as a tenacious player who is willing to whatever it takes.

“I describe myself as a player that’s going to show up for the team and cause havoc when the team needs me to,” is how McIntyre put it.

McIntyre now just has two simple goals for his time at WVU – get his degree and make it to the next level.
