A family member could be taking a trip down memory lane when a West Virginia commit takes his official visit to WVU.
Quarterback Sean Boyle, who is the son of a WVU alum, announced on Twitter that his visit to WVU will take place next weekend. Boyle committed to the Mountaineers in late October less than a week after he received an offer from his mother’s alma mater. His commitment was WVU’s first, and still only, quarterback commit for the 2023 class.

Listed as a 3-star recruit by most national recruiting outlets, Boyle stands at 6’2 and weighs 180 pounds. He was previously committed to Charlotte, his hometown program in North Carolina, but pulled his commitment once he had one from WVU.
“Coach Harrell facetimed me last night and told me the good news,” Boyle told WVSN at the time he received the offer. “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,” Boyle added.
With a cloud of uncertainty looming over the future of the WVU program towards the end of the 2022 season, Boyle confirmed his intent to remain committed to the Mountaineers to WVSN no matter what. Since that time, WVU hired a new athletic director and decided to retain head coach Neal Brown.
Boyle is listed as a pro-style quarterback, the No. 62 rated quarterback and 30th rated player from North Carolina on 247Sports Composite. He is placed as the No. 50 rated quarterback and No. 29 player from the state of North Carolina on On3.
Rivals doesn’t include him in their quarterback rankings, but have him listed as the No. 29 player from the state of North Carolina. All three outlets have him as a three-star recruit.
