Walk-on transfer Cain looks forward to the next chapter in West Virginia

Navy linebacker transfer Tyler Cain knew what he wanted to find when he entered the transfer portal. It turns out West Virginia has all that and more.

Cain, who has dedicated himself as the Mountaineers’ preferred walk-on, felt Morgantown offered the perfect mix of a place where he can have opportunities on the field and feel comfortable off it.

“I love how everyone in the entire state of West Virginia is so passionate about football and that’s the environment I want to live in,” he said.

Cain let inside linebackers coach Jeff Koonz know, along with Tyler Allen, that he was planning to sign up with the Mountaineers, and both were happy with the news. Allen was the trainer Cain spent the most time with and the trainers believe he can help the program.

“He told me I could come down here and earn a spot,” he said.

The coaching staff see the 6-foot-2, 230-pounder as either Mike or next-level bandits and were impressed with his physicality, speed and outburst on the position.

Cain has visited Morgantown on two separate occasions and believes the Mountaineers are on the up and will soon be back on track for success. And he understands that, considering he’s from Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania and grew up close to the program.

The main reason for his transfer was that the government passed a law that made Service Academy members no longer able to become professionals and wanted the opportunity to pursue his dream. That led him to West Virginia where he will have his chance to prove what he can do.

“I feel like I can come in and have a big impact on the team,” he said.

Cain will arrive in West Virginia on June 26 and will have all four years of remaining eligibility.

“Now I just have to learn the pieces,” Cain said.
