in that Phil Steele article.. who are the two Freshman STARTERS. amd who are the other two on the two deep? I got Pitts, 2 deep
maybe Ferms? 2 deep
Tonkery, who isn't really a starter, but should be on the 2 deep,either because he wasnt hurt yet, or because he'll miss maybe 3-4 games. who else?


Tevin Bush and Reggie Roberson have both been impressing in practice from what I have heard.

"Where this could help West Virginia, though, is in keeping running back Leddie Brown. The current commit just transferred to St. Frances Academy and will now be teammates with Fields. While Brown has been taking visits lately, his windows are closing at the other two main options."

Hopefully, this helps.


Florida just had a second running back commit this weekend. I think they were only taking two this season, so I think the Gators will really back off of Brown.

Baltimore (MD) St. Frances Academy wide receiver Randy Fields has committed to West Virginia. The three-star prospect committed to the Mountaineers over offers from Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, and more.


So a guy from the same school Leddie Brown is at and the same school Logan Holgorsen is set to go to. Very interesting.

Big 12 coaches talk anonymously about conference foes

About WVU:

“I think there’s going to be a good synergy with (Jake) Spavital coming back (as offensive coordinator) to work with Dana (Holgorsen) on the offense. Dana does a great job with those kids and got a lot out of their offense last year without having a great quarterback. They’ll slide the kid from Florida (Will Grier) in there, and we’ll see how he adapts to a completely different kind of system. I haven’t watched much tape on him, but I assume he’s going to be an upgrade over the last guy."

"I think their defensive coaches do a super job. Tony Gibson is the best defensive coordinator in the conference, and I’m not the only one who thinks that. Their 3-3 package is flat-out difficult to prepare for. You just don’t face that defense all the time. No one else plays it, really, so it just gives you different angles you’re not used to seeing. You can try to flatten it out through formations and get it to be a 3-4, but if you line up in the conventional sets and don’t use two tight ends, you’re facing a type of front your offensive line isn’t used to targeting, and it’s a different look for the quarterback as he comes out of the huddle and sees things. It just has an odd skew to it, and you’re asking kids to make major adjustments with a week to prepare."

"From a personnel standpoint, they’ve got some question marks. They have lost a lot of good players. That probably catches up to you a little bit. They’re just not going to be what they have been defensively, and I don’t see a whole lot there to replace that talent.”


The quote on Kansas State being a pain in the ass had to be Dana.

Damn haven't heard that name in years, was curious what he was doing, he put up NUMBERS at Texas Tech


That Tech offense was fun to watch in 2007 and 2008 with him at quarterback.

He has already spent time on the staffs at Oklahoma State and Washington State and is now an OC at North Texas. Depending how it goes for him, I could see him being a guy Dana would trust running the offense here in a few years if Spav moves on to a head coaching gig.

Yes, I think others will come. Logan is 6'1" tall and weighs 185 lbs. Other schools listed as interested are Nevada, Ohio, Purdue and Toledo. None of which are big time programs meaning he is not a top caliber recruit at this point.
If our offense continues to evolve and puts up numbers, they will come along with receivers and running backs.


But three of those programs (Nevada, Purdue and Toledo) run the air raid or a similar style. To me it shows schools thinks he has a good arm and could fit in with their uptempo style. And he is listed at 6-1 (I have also seen 6-0) and 185 going into his junior season. If he grows an inch or two and adds 15 pounds over the next two years, he would be a similar build to Will Grier.

Does he end up at WVU? Maybe. RichRod gave his kid a scholarship at Arizona when no other school was even looking at him (according to recruiting sites). I hope Dana is above nepotism and gives Logan a scholarship only if he can help the team.

I actually think Logan will end up being pretty good. There is a reason he is leaving Morgantown for another school.

EDIT: I think it should be noted the staff is focused on 2019 quarterback Brian Maurer from Florida. Spav has seen him workout and wants him in Morgantown. The kid is 6-4 and 185 currently. So Logan might have competition in that class if he comes to WVU.

The 2018 class is filling up fast. By my count, if Hardy and Isreal (the last two 2017 signees still not yet on campus) arrive, WVU will have 67 scholarship players in 2017 eligible to return for the 2018 season. Not allowing for attrition (and there will likely be some), that only leaves 18 scholarships for 2018 recruits. Rogers was number 12. That means there are six slots left as of now.

Who will fill those six slots?

Stills obviously has a slot should he decide to commit.

So does Aliquippa's Kwantel Raines I would think.

WVU needs a couple of OL recruits, preferably tackles, as they lost both Angus and Lazard there.

Another CB would be on the radar, I would think, since we lose Battle, Daniels, and Winfield after this season.

That's 5, best case scenario. Will the staff save a couple of slots for transfers as they have the past few years?

The 2018 recruiting season may be quickly winding down. Thoughts??


Stills has a spot no matter what. Raines would be a great pickup but I think he stays at home for sPitt.

OL has to be a major target for remaining spots. The mostly likely prospects are TJ Bradley (JUCO), Oyenmwen Uzebu, Joshua Ezeudu and Briason Mays. There are a few other JUCOs being considered as Wickline still.

Outside of that, who knows. Seider is trying to get Leddie Brown to flip to Florida. If he succeeds, that could open a spot for a transfer. A few Bama guys (running back and defensive back) recently transferred so I am sure Belk is on them.

Bruce Feldman says he would pick WVU No. 3 in the Big 12.

Bruce is speaking highly of the Mountaineers.

Anybody hearing anything on this kid, eligible, redshirt, prep school, etc.


I wouldn't put money on him showing up this season. I imagine he will go the prep route. Maybe Hargrave in Virginia like Knapper.

His scholarship spot is a mystery. Some are saying Logan Routt will get it for this season. But if Esa is suspended for an extended period, Huggs almost has to find a transfer for depth.

The penalty for testing positive for street drugs, including marijuana, will be reduced to half a season from a full season. Street drugs are not performance-enhancing in nature, and this change will encourage schools to provide student-athletes the necessary rehabilitation.


Yep. They *apparently* failed an NCAA drug test after the Gonzaga game. If it was a school piss test, it may be different. I'm not sure.

The suspension might actually be a half of a season. Now it is making sense why Macon left.

Romero's passing really hit me hard as I was a horror movie fiend as a teenager. I love his zombie films, but I think I will always love Creepshow the most.

Holgorsen's son is transferring from Morgantown High, according to today's Dominion Post. Doesn't say where he's going or why.


I have heard a rumor he will be at St. Frances in Baltimore. Logan actually just started following the head coach of that team one Twitter so there is a little smoke.

St. Frances plays against teams from across the country and have a couple Division I guys on the roster. I imagine the transfer is all about recruiting potential (I mentioned that in the recruiting thread).

If he doesn't go to a prep school, he might be back with his mom in Texas. He will not be playing in WV this fall.

I wouldn't be shocked if he is just transferring to a boarding/private school where he might get more eyes on him playing football during his final two years of high school. Athletes do it all the time; places like the IMG Academy in Florida an Bishop Gorman in Nevada are just football factories.

With how much his old man makes, he can likely go anywhere in the country.

Here is the 2017 Big 12 media poll:

1. Oklahoma (19) 303
2. Oklahoma State (12) 294
3. K-State (1) 231
4. Texas 213
5. TCU 202
6. West Virginia 183
7. Baylor 129
8. Texas Tech 85
9. Iowa State 83
10. Kansas 37

For reference, here is the poll from 2016 and with where teams actually finished:
1. Oklahoma (1)
2. TCU (5)
3. Oklahoma State (2)
4. Baylor (6)
5. Texas (7)
6. Texas Tech (8)
7. West Virginia (3)
8. Kansas State (4)
9. Iowa State (9)
10. Kansas (10)

So outside of Oklahoma, Iowa State and Kansas, they really don't know ****.
