West Virginia Football Announces Signing of 3-Star DL Corey McIntyre Jr. to 2023 Class
The West Virginia football program announced the signing of defensive lineman Corey McIntyre Jr. early Wednesday morning.
McIntyre has signed his national letter of intent with WVU. As head coach Neal Brown talked about in a video posted by the official WVU football Twitter account, McIntyre brings an explosiveness off the ball the Mountaineer defense lost with Dante Stills tapping out his eligibility and now pursuing the NFL. He’s also another legacy addition to the 2023 recruiting class for WVU.

Listed at 6’4”, 280 pounds, McIntyre is a Treasure Coast High School product from Port Saint Lucie, Florida. McIntyre was heavily recruited as a three-star prospect by both 247 Sports and Rivals. He also had offers from Coastal Carolina, Florida Atlantic, Liberty, and South Florida and major programs like Indiana, Mississippi State, North Carolina State, Pitt, and Washington State.
McIntyre provides future defensive line depth for the WVU defense and shows success recruiting in Florida, something the Mountaineers needed to convey with this class. It will now be interesting if he gets into game action his freeman season.
