West Virginia redshirt senior QB Clint Trickett is retiring from football due to concussions and will not play in the school's bowl game.

Trickett told the media he has suffered five concussions in the past 14 months, hiding two from trainers. Sophomore Skyler Howard should start in his place. Trickett was previously cleared to practice, but a recent update said he had not been cleared to play. The quarterback started his career at FSU before transferring to West Virginia.

West Virginia WR Mario Alford accepted an invitation to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Alford was ignored by scouts prior to this season, but he broke out playing across from future first-rounder Kevin White. Heading into the school's bowl matchup versus Texas A&M, Alford has 62 receptions for 888 yards and 10 touchdowns. He has also returned 22 kicks for 609 yards (27.7 average) and two touchdowns. The 5-foot-9, 175-pound Alford "hasn't gone unnoticed by opposing coaches and NFL scouts," according to NFL.com's analysts.

The Redskins win Saturday "may have clinched" the Titans and Bucs as the two staffs coaching the 2015 Senior Bowl, per Patrick Woo.

Both teams will be looking at quarterbacks during the draft process, but we highly doubt they will find one at the Senior Bowl unless Marcus Mariota attends the event. However, there is still plenty of benefit in coaching the event and putting prospects on your roster through practices.

West Virginia redshirt senior Clint Trickett returned to practice after passing concussion protocol.

Trickett has not played since being knocked out against Kansas State on Nov. 20. The Mountaineers face Texas A&M in their bowl game, and it will be Trckett's and receiver Kevin White's final collegiate game.

West Virginia senior WR Kevin White named second-team AP All-American.

The 6-foot-3, 209-pound White had a break out season with 102 catches for 1,318 yards and nine touchdowns on his 2014 resume. The West Virginia prospect has only played at the FBS level for two seasons and greatly improved heading in his final season. White can dominate at the catch point in contested situations but also wins with powerful yards after the catch.

West Virginia senior WR Kevin White accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

The exhibition today confirmed a report from CBS Sports' Dane Brugler stating the same last week. Brugler believes White is perhaps the highest-graded NFL prospect set to play in the Senior Bowl, and we won't disagree. The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder, "more of a (Larry) Fitzgerald type receiver in that he doesn't have great speed," an NFL scout recently told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, will be a first-rounder this spring.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes West Virginia senior WR Kevin White "might be the highest-graded NFL prospect participating in the SeniorBowl."

The West Virginia prospect has had one hell of a year in 2014. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound wideout has only played at the FBS level for two seasons and greatly improved heading in his final season. White can dominate at the catch point in contested situations but also wins with powerful yards after the catch.

Citing a conversation with an NFL scout, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler says West Virginia WR Kevin White has accepted an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl.

Rest in peace, Senior Bowl defensive backs. White might be the top receiver in this entire class, even over Amari Cooper. Some might label White a one year wonder, but he has only played at the FBS level for two season and greatly improved heading in his senior year. White can dominate at the catch point in contested situations but also wins with powerful yards after the catch.

West Virginia senior WR Kevin White is "more of a (Larry) Fitzgerald type receiver in that he doesn't have great speed," an NFL scout told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

"I never see him beat people deep," the scout said. "But (if) he is even with them he's going to get the ball. Very good player." Assuming Dorial Green-Beckham doesn't leap them, it's assumed that White is fighting Louisville's DeVante Parker to become the second receiver drafted after Amari Cooper. Of Parker, the same scout said: "He's got size, speed and was dominating at the end of the season. He looks a little faster than White."
Dec 10 - 12:39 AM

West Virginia redshirt senior OG Mark Glowinski has accepted an invitation to play in the East West Shrine game.

The 6-foot-5, 312-pounder was moved from tackle to guard during spring practices in 2013. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline has noted that Glowinski "has been pegged for tackle at the next level by a number of scouts."
Dec 9 - 3:35 PM

West Virginia WR Mario Alford had five receptions for 86 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 37-24 win over Iowa State.

As defenses have rolled coverage more and more towards Kevin White, Alford has taken advantage. He's up to 62 receptions for 888 yards and 10 touchdowns. The 5-foot-9, 175-pound Alford "hasn't gone unnoticed by opposing coaches and NFL scouts," according to NFL.com's analysts.
Nov 30 - 8:15 PM

West Virginia redshirt sophomore RB Rushel Shell rushed for 146 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries in the school's 37-24 win over Iowa State.

Shell, a Pittsburgh transfer, has produced an up and down season in the school's pass focused offense. We absolutely expect Shell to return next season.
Nov 29 - 4:26 PM

West Virginia senior WR Kevin White was limited to 48 receiving yards on four catches in the school's 37-24 win over Iowa State.

White is still an outstanding talent, but he has come down to earth production wise in three of the last four weeks. We still believe White can play both the big and small game. He is on pace for the first-round this spring.
Nov 29 - 3:54 PM

West Virginia redshirt senior QB Clint Trickett will not start against Iowa State due to a concussion.

Skyler Howard will start in his place. The Mountaineers are on a three game losing streak, and Trickett has thrown five interceptions and one touchdown in that span. Howard has only attempted 25 passes all season, but will have one of the best receivers in the country to target in Kevin White.
Nov 29 - 11:10 AM

ESPN's Mel Kiper called West Virginia senior WR Kevin White the draft's biggest receiving riser this year.

"The one-time juco star wasn't on my preseason Big Board but was up to No. 14 on Nov. 19, after his fifth game with at least 10 catches and his eighth game with at least 100 yards against Texas," Kiper wrote. "The senior plays even bigger than his 6-3 frame, snatching everything near him, and likely has leaped into the first round." The 6-foot-3, 209-pound White has 98 catches for 1,271 yards and nine touchdowns this season.
