September 1 was a big day for college football recruits across the country, and it was no different for Corey McIntyre Jr.
McIntyre, a 2023 three-star defensive lineman from Treasure Coast High School in Port St. Lucie, Florida, first came into contact with West Virginia on Sept. 1 and he’s been in contact with WVU defensive line coach Andrew Jackson. The relationship has progressed to an official offer.

In his communication and relationship-building with Jackson and WVU, McIntyre told WV Sports Now that the process so far has been amazing. The Mountaineer coaches and recruiters have been showing him a lot of love.
While he said he doesn’t know too much about WVU head coach Neal Brown, he knows that WVU is a great school with a great football program. A program that he hopes to see in person, wanting to attend a Mountaineer game at some point in October.
If anything, the offer from WVU has served as a motivator for McIntyre, pushing him to work even harder on the field.
“Now that West Virginia has also reached out to recruit me, it’s changed my outlook on the whole process and encouraged me to work harder to prove myself,” McIntrye said.
With offers from WVU and Mississippi State, and interest from schools like Vanderbilt, UAB, Marshall and Coastal Carolina, McIntyre has enjoyed getting to build relationships with coaches. He’s had fun actually being recruited to this point. With just two offers so far, as only a junior, his offer sheet should begin to rise as the season goes on.
While Rivals has not rated him yet, 247Sports rates him as the 88th-ranked defensive lineman and the 98th-ranked recruit from Florida. He hasn’t planned any visits yet, but he’s thinking of his commitment date coming sometime during his senior season.
So far this season, McIntyre and Treasure Coast have jumped out to a 3-0 record in Florida 8-A District 6 football.
