3-Star 2023 QB Recruit Sean Boyle Pulls Charlotte Commitment Days After Receiving WVU Offer



In an interesting development, a player already committed to another school has now decided to de-commit just days after West Virginia extended him an official offer.

Sean Boyle, who is a 3-star quarterback prospect in the 2023 class, announced that he is pulling out of his prior commitment to North Carolina at Charlotte.

Boyle is a senior at Charlotte Catholic High School in Charlotte, North Carolina. During his recruiting process, Boyle has received offers from Memphis, Rutgers, South Florida, UConn, James Madison and Arkansas State but last November, Boyle decided to commit to his hometown school, the Charlotte 49ers.

While de-committing to Charlotte doesn’t ensure Boyle plans to pick WVU out of his current offers, but the Mountaineers are a program he has family ties to. Although he’s from North Carolina, Boyle’s mother is a WVU alum.

“Coach Harrell Facetimed me last night and told me the good news,” Boyle told WVSN. “He said that I’d be a great fit in their offense and what they’re doing as a team. My mom graduated from WVU so it’s definitely an offer I’ve worked for since I was a kid.”

West Virginia Extends Offer to 2023 3-Star QB and Charlotte Commit Sean Boyle

As of now, WVU has 17 commitments in total for the 2023 class. None of them are quarterbacks. That could obviously be due to liking the depth of youth for the future behind JT Daniels, but it could also change with Boyle now available.

This news is something to keep an eye on.

J.T. Daniels (Redshirt Junior)

Will Crowder (Redshirt Freshman)

Garrett Greene (Sophomore)

Nicco Marchiol (Freshman)

WVU head coach Neal Brown has only separated his backup quarterbacks with the “OR” between them to not officially rank them in any particular order. It can also be said the Mountaineers are pleased with the young quarterback group they have behind Daniels.
