WVU 2023 Commits Jahiem White and Sean Boyle Staying with Mountaineers



Uncertainty can cause chaos at any college program. Due to a looming cloud hanging over West Virginia football until important decisions are made, WVSN reached out to players who have already committed to WVU to see if anything could change their mind. Two key players told us they are still onboard with becoming a Mountaineer.

Running back Jahiem White, who is widely considered one of WVU’s top commits in the 2023 class, told us about his loyalty to WVU and his eagerness to arrive in Morgantown as soon as possible.

“I made a commitment and I will honor it. WVU is home and I will be there January 7. I have built a bond with the coaches, especially Coach Scott, and my hope is that I get to continue building that bond throughout my career at WVU. The staff at WVU took a chance on me before any other Power 5 team did. I want to pay that back. Especially to Coach Scott,” White said in a message.

It is worth noting that while White saying he is still locked in is a major positive for WVU, things can always change and this is now the second time the star back out of York, Pennsylvania has told us that he choose WVU for the coaching staff and wishes the coaches remain at the school.

WVU 2023 Commit Jahiem White Cites Coaches as Reason for Picking Mountaineers

Could head coach Neal Brown being fired trigger White to de-commit despite saying he is fully bought in regardless? Would a new coach retain Scott in order to keep White? If Scot is not back, is that the last straw and results in White looking elsewhere, maybe even following the coaches who recruited him? All of these questions are going to exist until the university makes decisions on the staff, granted the plan is to hire a new athletic director first in the coming weeks.

White is not the only commit to let us know that he expects to be a Mountaineer no matter what. Quarterback Sean Boyle, who recently committed to WVU just days after receiving an offer, was more short and to the point in his response. “Yessir, I’m fully committed!!,” said Boyle.

WVU’s only quarterback commit in their 2023 class, Boyle has a family tie that could be a key factor for him. Boyle’s mother is an alum of the school. He was committed to Charlotte before gaining an official offer from the Mountaineers. Boyle pulled his Charlotte commitment almost instantaneously upon learning of his opportunity to wear the Old Gold and Blue of West Virginia.

Boyle is considered a three-star prospect by most national recruiting outlets.

WVSN also reached out to Rodney Gallagher, but has not yet heard back from WVU’s top commit. Gallagher attended WVU’s game against TCU a few weeks ago.
