They just need two

Time is ticking here in camp and Dana Holgorsen and his assistants are closer by the day to designing depth charts. West Virginia has two wide receivers and needs two more, meaning one issue at the start of camp is gone and has been replaced by another.

CAMP BEGAN WITH questions about who’ll play inside receiver with and behind Daikiel Shorts, and that took a bad turn with news that one candidate, redshirt freshman Jacky Marcellus, would miss the season with a knee injury.

Camp is closing with answers there and questions at wide receiver.

Holgorsen said Logan Moore, who competed for the quarterback spot in the spring, has earned a spot at inside receiver and Jordan Thompson has been “phenomenal” so far.

“He may be turning a corner toward making plays,” Holgorsen said.

Right now, there are only names behind wide receivers Mario Alford and Kevin White. Holgorsen said he’d like to get two backups out of junior K.J. Myers, sophomores Vernon Davis and Devonte Mathis and redshirt freshman Shelton Gibson and their 25 career receptions.
