West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen announced that junior RB Andrew Buie will head home for the fall semester and return to the school in the spring.
Buie has rushed for 1,023 yards and eight TDs over 230 attempts in his two-season collegiate career, but he found himself in an interesting situation this winter when his coach effectively signed two free agents to supplant him on the depth chart (Charles Sims and Rushel Shell). Sims will start in 2013, while Shell is expected to take over next season. Buie has apparently decided to take a semester off and return to the Mountaineers in time to battle for a backup gig behind Shell next season. If all goes according to plan, Holgorsen will have pulled off a coup and have three different productive backs slotted to start the next three seasons. Fri, Aug 30, 2013 02:20:00 PM

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports junior RB Andrew Buie has withdrawn from West Virginia.

Buie was rumored to be redshirting the season, which was news that seemed odd at the time. Head coach Dana Holgorsen said Buie needed to "develop both mentally and physically" during that redshirt season. "He had to make some decisions," the head coach said Tuesday. "Did we force him to redshirt? No." Buie could transfer to an FCS program and play immediately, or join an FBS team and sit out the 2013 season.

West Virginia junior RB Andrew Buie will redshirt this season.

Buie's importance to the program has waned as the Mountaineers courted and secured transfer backs Charles Sims and Rushel Shell. Sims will start in 2013, while Shell is expected to take over next season. Buie's decision means that he'll likely function as Shell's backup next year before taking over the starter's gig as a redshirt senior in 2015. Buie has rushed for 1,023 yards and eight TDs over 230 attempts in his collegiate career. He also caught 28 passes for 318 yards last season.
