After taking a leave of absence from Michigan early on in the 2014 season, Kyle Bosch has found a new home in God’s Country.
In a press release Thursday night, West Virginia announced that Bosch has signed a grant-in-aid and is enrolled at the school for the 2015 spring semester. Bosch is the second former Wolverine to transfer to the Mountaineers in the last month, joining linebacker Michael Ferns.
The school did not state whether the offensive lineman would be eligible for the 2015 season.
“I am honored to be part of the Mountaineer family and West Virginia University community,” Bosch said in a statement released to 247Sports.com. “Coach (Ron) Crook recruited me when he was at Stanford, and I’m excited to learn from him and contribute to the team. The competition in the Big 12 is phenomenal, and we are going after a championship.
“I was very fortunate to start as a true freshman at Michigan and had wonderful teammates. I was proud to be a Wolverine, but I am a Mountaineer now and look forward to forming the same bonds here as I did with my teammates in Ann Arbor.”
Bosch played in five games in 2013 at left guard, starting three of those contests. He played in the 2014 opener vs. Appalachian State before taking what turned out to be a permanent leave of absence from UM.
A four-star member of the Wolverines’ 2013 recruiting class, Bosch was rated as the No. 7 offensive tackle; the No. 4 player at any position in the state of Illinois; and the No. 104 player nationally.
