After playing briefly in one game this fall, Kyle Bosch took what as termed "a personal leave of absence" from the University of Michigan. That turned out to be permanent, as he decided to leave the program and the school.
Since confirming that decision, Bosch has been in contact with several schools, but lists West Virginia as a very possible destination.
"I've been in contact with several schools int he Big 12 and Pac12, but West Virginia is one of the highest ones," he said of possible transfer destinations. "I haven't set up a visit yet, but I will talk it over with my family and work out some possible dates."Bosch played as a true freshman for the Wolverines in 2013, then made his brief appearance this year before leaving. He apparently did so on good terms, and displayed no rancor toward the team that got his commitment out of high school. The expectation is that he will be able to treat 2013 as a redshirt year, which would leave him two years' eligibility after sitting out the 2015 season.
West Virginia was among the two dozen schools that offered the lineman a scholarship out of St. Francis High School in Wheaton, Ill. The Mountaineers made a push, but were unable to overcome the pitches of midwest schools closer to Bosch's home. However, that doesn't appear to be a factor this time around, as Bosch clearly has West Virginia on his short list.
Bosch's decision could be influenced by that of Michael Ferns, who made his decision to transfer recently and enrolled at West Virginia for the spring semester.
