WVU Football Recruiting

2024 3-Star WR Decommits from WVU Football Program



WVU Football commit Ja’Quan Bostic

As recruits begin to re-evaluate their plans, the WVU football program has now endured a key loss that was expected to be part of the future.

Jay’Quan Bostic, a three-star wide receiver out of Taft High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, tells that he is withdrawing his commitment to the Mountaineers.

According to Chad Simmons of, Bostic is opening back up his recruitment and that may now delay when he signs his National Letter of Intent. “I was planning to sign in December and to graduate early, but now, I might wait until February,” Bostic told Simmons. “I want to take my time, take some visits and make the decision. I will probably play basketball, keep training and sign in February now.”

Bostic committed to West Virginia in early July after a series of visits and explained how WVU felt like home during a conversation with WV Sports Now at the time.

“It felt like home when I first arrived on campus and I see why it’s called almost heaven,” said Bostic then. “It’s wonderful and has everything you need to be at the next level.”

He has experience playing both wide receiver and defensive back at Taft High School in Cincinnati, Ohio. The rest of his top 6 included Cincinnati, Kentucky, Miami (FL), Michigan and Michigan State.

Before committing to WVU, Bostic was also considering Boston College, Duke, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Pitt and Syracuse.

Bostic is rated as a three-star prospect. 247Sports rates Bostic as the 1,068th-ranked recruit in the class (138th-ranked wide receiver and the 45th-ranked recruit from Ohio) while On3 rates him as the 1,009th-ranked recruit in the class (141st-ranked wide receiver and the 39th-ranked recruit from Ohio).

WVU football also lost a commitment from a three-star safety a couple weeks ago.
