Sean Ryan

The Mountaineer offense received some good news Friday afternoon when the athletic department announced that sophomore wide receiver Sean Ryan was granted immediate eligibility to play for 2019.

Ryan provides a boost to a receiving corps that is in need of experience. After graduating each of the top four leading pass catchers from a year ago, the only receivers on the team that caught at least 10 passes in 2018 are juniors TJ Simmons and Tevin Bush.

Ryan transferred to WVU after playing a year at Temple University. Seeing time in 11 games, the 6-foot 3-inch Ryan caught 12 passes for 162 yards and one touchdown as a true freshman in 2018.
