Before WVU coach Neal Brown provided an extensive injury update Tuesday during his weekly press conference, he noted that one veteran Mountaineer intends to leave the program.
Brown confirmed that junior receiver Tevin Bush will enter the transfer portal, after enduring what Brown called “a rough few months.”
“I support that decision,” Brown said. “That preserves his redshirt year. He wants to go closer to home. That’s it. I support him, and we’ll help him achieve that goal.”
As Brown noted, Bush still has two years of eligibility remaining. He’ll be able to take advantage of the new NCAA redshirt rule this season since he only appeared in two games.
Bush played in West Virginia’s first two contests, catching six passes for 95 yards and a touchdown and rushing three times for 15 yards. But he hasn’t played in a game since week two, as Brown said a foot injury has kept him sidelined.
Since his freshman campaign in 2017, Bush has appeared in 22 contests for the Mountaineers, racking up more than 300 receiving yards and recording two touchdowns.
