West Virginia’s football student-athletes may have already returned to campus, but that doesn’t mean Neal Brown is finished adding to his roster.
Defensive end Joseph Boletepeli announced on his Twitter account that he will join the Mountaineers as a transfer with two remaining years of eligibility. The announcement prompted a flurry of tweets from WVU’s coaching staff, including Neal Brown’s trademark “Let’s Go!!!” tweet upon each commitment.
According to MetroNews’s Alex Hickey, Boletepeli will receive a waiver from NC State for immediate elibility in the 2020 season.
A native of Raliegh, North Carolina, Boletepeli played nine games in two seasons with the Wolf Pack. Last year, he amassed 11 tackles and 1.5 sacks in six games under former West Virginia defensive coordinator Tony Gibson. He did not appear in NC State’s matchup against West Virginia in Morgantown.
