    Yep, there are several others transfers they are looking at right now. They would have to sit out this season.

    Get them here ASAP so they can get some work in the weight room and get acclimated to the area and team.

    At that point he would not have qualified with us either. The point of a JC/CC is to become academically eligible.

    Yep, seems that way. He could have been on West Virginia's roster this fall, but they wanted him to pay his own way this fall and receive a scholarship in the spring. HUD offered a scholarship. He can play this fall.

    Rick and Rick---this is starting to resemble the "Spirit of '76" with the QB transfer and all the JUCOs

    Maybe we have to call in MS Leona Poche to baby sit!!! lol

    If these guys are only half as good as the JC's we had back then, we will definitely be OK.

    according to Phil Steele Mag, he was listed 3rd on the Depth Chart at WV as Right Tackle. I would assume he will begin on our 2 deep as one of our Tackles, either Right or Left.

    I wonder why the ivy league hasn't noticed the astronomical success rate of the JUCO's and take more transfer students in from that pool of candidates?

    Ivy schools do not provide schollys for sports ..

    most kids at jucos cant afford cars much less 200 k student loans
