WVU Training Camp: Mountaineers Begin Climb Back To The Top Of The Big East

Well folks, fall camp opened this past weekend for the Mountaineers. I tend not to put a lot of stock in the stories that come out of these camps, but there are a few things to make note of.

-Bruce Irvin. The JuCo transfer seems to be turning plenty of heads. Some envision him playing DE, others outside LB. Either way, he seems to have the explosiveness of Robert Sands but, you know, HUGE. He looks like the kind of guy who can blow some people up, but oftentimes the Mountaineers' Defense relies too much on hitting and not enough on tackling. If he can wrap folks up, he's a welcome addition.

-Coley White. Pat's little brother spent all spring taking QB reps, but has since moved back to slot receiver.  With Geno Smith healthy and highly touted frosh Johnson and Brunetti now on campus, it looks unlikely that we'll ever see Coley under center. If he has half of Pat's athleticism, then he needs to be on the field. Slot receiver or KR/PR seems like a good fit to me.

-Scooter Berry.  He missed much of 2009 and all of spring practice with a shoulder injury, but seems to be back into the swing of things. This is a huge gain for the 'Eers D. Without Scooter playing and playing well this year, the D Line could have serious issues.

-Check out the current depth chart here.

That's what jumped out at me from reports of the first two days of camp. Again, I don't put much stock in these things.  Other than a few position battles, we won't really know what's up until the 'Eers face some live opponents.  Until then, keep checking back with this stream as new stories bubble to the surface.
