TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that West Virginia redshirt senior OG Mark Glowinski "has been pegged for tackle at the next level by a number of scouts."

"Prior to the season many pundits, including myself, lauded the Maryland defense and many of its underrated prospects," Pauline wrote. "West Virginia made us look foolish on Saturday as they rolled up 694-yards against the Terps and Glowinski’s blocking played a large part in the teams success. The wide-bodied guard was dominant at the point of attack and he looked terrific in pass protection. Glowinski is an underrated athlete with a large degree of upside and has been pegged for tackle at the next level by a number of scouts." The 6-foot-5, 312-pounder was moved from tackle to guard during spring practices in 2013.

CBS Sport's Dane Brugler notes that West Virginia senior WR Kevin White has "clearly elevated his play as a senior."

"He has room to improve to improve as a blocker, but it's been almost all positive for the Mountaineer wideout, who has clearly elevated his play as a senior," Brugler wrote. The 6-foot-3, 209-pound has been quite impressive the last three games, as he is second in the FBS with 460 receiving yards and one of only three players with 30 plus catches on the year. The Mountaineers prospect could be selected during the second day of the draft this spring.

Mountaineer Sports Network's Tony Caridi reports that West Virginia redshirt sophomore Brandon Napoleon "is out for the season" as he "underwent season-ending knee surgery" on Tuesday.

The Mountaineers prospect had three tackles contributing mainly on special teams as a redshirt freshman, and was expected to compete for playing time this fall at the cornerback position.

West Virginia sophomore CB Daryl Worley has been suspended for an undisclosed violation of team rules.

No further details were disclosed. Worley started all three games this season, recording two interceptions during that time. Senior Ishmael Banks had been suspended for the first three games, so his expected return comes at the right time. West Virginia hosts Oklahoma this week.

West Virginia senior WR Kevin White is "tailored for the NFL," according to Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl.

White has the "size, speed and strength in traffic" to have success at the next level, and Weidl even pointed to the receiver "Mossing" two Maryland defenders. The senior was not ranked highly on many preseason lists, including ours, but he is absolutely making a name for himself and looks to, at worst, be a second day selection.
Sep 15 - 10:00 AM

West Virginia senior WR Kevin White caught 13 balls for 216 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 40-37 victory over Maryland.

White's explosive 44-yard score in the second quarter put West Virginia up 21-3; the team had to stave off a furious Maryland second half rally to pull out the win. We believe the 6-foot-3, 209-pound White is the Big 12's best receiver. He's already nearly matched his production from last season, hauling in 32 catches for 460 yards and a pair of touchdowns (White finished third on the team with 35 receptions for 507 yards and five touchdowns last year).
Sep 14 - 11:24 PM

West Virginia redshirt senior QB Clint Trickett completed 37-of-49 passes for 511 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 40-37 triumph against Maryland.

Trickett didn't enter the season on the NFL's radar, but he's on it now. In the season opener, his outstanding performance put a scare into Alabama. In Week 2, he played flawlessly against Towson, and, over the weekend, he put on his best vintage Geno Smith impersonation (Trickett's 511 yards were the second-most in school history behind Geno Smith's 656-yard, 8 TD game against Baylor in 2012). Overall, Trickett is 101-for-134 (75.4%) for 1,224 yards, seven touchdowns and an interception through three games. After completing just 52.8 percent of his passes last season, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote over the summer that it was imperative for Trickett to improve his accuracy to have any chance at playing in the NFL. Mission accomplished so far.
Sep 14 - 11:08 PM

West Virginia senior WR Kevin White caught 13 passes for 216 yards and one touchdown in the school's 40-37 win over Maryland.

White continues his red hot start, as prior to this game White recorded 19 catches for 244 yards and a touchdown in two games. Many like Baylor's Antwan Goodley, but we believe White is the Big 12's top senior receiver. He could be selected during the second day of the draft this spring.
Sep 13 - 3:47 PM

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes West Virginia WR Kevin White will join Baylor's Antwan Goodley as the Big 12's best senior receivers if QB Clint Trickett plays consistently.

White hauled in nine catches for 143 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's 33-23 loss to Alabama. "White looked the part with a tall, muscular frame and enough speed to gain clean release off the line of scrimmage and create separation in routes," Brugler wrote. "He did an excellent job elevating to pluck with attitude and power, displaying natural body control and a physical demeanor to come down with the reception. White routinely attacks with his hands and while he will have some focus drops, he is usually sure-handed away from his body. He is more than just a possession target with quick feet to do something after the catch." The 6-foot-3, 209-pound White finished third on the team last season with 35 receptions for 507 yards and five touchdowns.

West Virginia redshirt senior QB Clint Trickett completed 29 of 45 passes for 365 yards and a score in the school's 33-23 loss to Alabama.

Trickett had a solid outing in West Virginia's opener, showing good awareness and great accuracy against Alabama. The Mountaineers' prospect played with confidence and did not shy away from testing Alabama secondary early and often in the game. While Trickett does not possess an ideal frame for the next level, at 6-foot-2, 186 pounds, he'll definitely put evaluators on notice, if his awareness and accuracy continues to improve.
Sep 1 - 10:19 AM

West Virginia senior WR Kevin White caught nine passes for 143 yards and one touchdown in the school's 33-23 loss to Alabama.

The 6-foot-3, 209 pound White had an impressive game showing off his NFL-ready frame and physicality, as he overpowered Alabama defenders all day. The West Virginia prospect White had a ridiculous diving catch in the back of the end zone for the Mountaineers' first score. Last season, White finished third on the team with 35 receptions for 507 yards and five touchdowns, and it looks like he's on his way to a breakout season, if he remains Clint Trickett's favorite target.
Aug 31 - 8:25 PM

West Virginia senior CB Ishmael Banks has been suspended for three games due to an unspecified academic eligibility issue.

A previous report suggested Banks could be sidelined for the entire season. He has appeared in 36 games over the last three seasons and started every contest in 2013. Banks will miss games against Alabama, Towson and Maryland, but will likely return against Oklahoma on September 20.

West Virginia senior CB Ishmael "Icky" Banks "is dealing with an academic eligibility issue that could sideline him this season," reports WV Metro News.

Banks, one of the Mountaineers' most valuable defenders, has appeared in 36 games the past three years and started every contest last season. "I’m still learning from him," sophomore Daryl Worley to Metro News two weeks ago. "There’s times when I feel myself getting overwhelmed and angry with myself and he can calm me down." For a Mountaineers defense which coughed up 263.3 passing yards per game last year and finished 106th overall in pass defense, this is potentially devastating news. Junior Terrell Chestnut would likely start across from Worley if Banks misses action.
Aug 19 - 2:03 AM

Former USC QB recruit David Sills has now committed to West Virginia.

The 6'3/200 lbs 2015 recruit decommitted from USC in June, and Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman suggested early on that WVU could be the destination. We can speculate Sills saw the writing on the wall when USC signed five-star recruit Ricky Town. If you remember, Sills was the seventh grader that gave his verbal commitment to Lane Kiffin. He is viewed as a four-star prospect by many services.

FOXSports.com's Bruce Feldman speculated that West Virginia could be a possibility for high school QB David Sills, who decommitted from USC last week.

Sills saw the writing on the wall when the Trojans staked their future on five-star quarterback commit Ricky Town and has re-opened his recruiting. Some saw Sills as a prodigy back in middle school when Lane Kiffin acquired his verbal commitment as a seventh grader, but the Maryland prep has turned into "merely" a really good recruit -- he's the No. 14 pro-style QB according to Scout.com, the No. 21 QB according to 247 Sports and the No. 23 according to ESPN. West Virginia is the heavy early favorite for Sills, but the four-star recruit could also investigate scholarship offers from Boston College, Clemson, Maryland, Michigan, Virginia Tech, and a bevy of others.
