MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — For the fourth time this year, the WVU football program has secured a verbal commitment from a transfer player. North Carolina State defensive end Joseph Boletepeli is bound for Morgantown.
Boletepeli has played two seasons with the Wolfpack. As a freshman in 2018, he appeared in 3 games, seeing action on 32 snaps and collecting 2 tackles. Last fall, he played in 7 games and was credited with 11 tackles and 1.5 sacks.
Boletepeli is a native of Raleigh, N.C. and played at Heritage High School for a prominent coaching staff that featured former NFL players Dewayne Washington, Torry Holt and Willie Parker. He was listed as a 3-star recruit out of high school.
The 6-foot-4, 262-pound lineman played last season for former WVU defensive coordinator Tony Gibson. Boletepeli joins Scottie Young (Arizona), Bryce Brand (Maryland) and Tyler Sumpter (Troy) as new Mountaineers to transfer into the program this spring.
