Wait Was Tough For WVU Transfer Bosch

Relative to many other NCAA appeals and decision timeframes, Kyle Bosch's request to be immediately eligible at West Virginia following his transfer from Michigan was fairly speedy. That didn't keep him off the pins and needles he felt in waiting for the governing body's ruling, however.

"It was torture just sitting there and waiting for a ruling," Bosch told BlueGoldNews.com after learning that his appeal to play this year at West Virginia had been approved. "I'll be competing for a spot at guard."

Bosch practiced through the spring for West Virginia, but didn't get a lot of work with the top offensive line units in those full scale scrimmage situations open to viewing. That's not a reflection on his ability, but rather on the uncertain status of his eligibility this year. After starting in three games and playing in several others in his true freshman season of 2013, he played just one snap in the Wolverines' opening game in 2014 (the final play of the contest). He did not appear again, and it was quickly announced that he would take a leave of absence for personal reasons. He left school, did not re-enroll or rejoin the team, and after a January, 2015 meeting with new head coach Jim Harbaugh, announced that he would be transferring.
