With the renewed use of TE’s is there a schollie in line for Brenton Strange? We lose Wesco next year but still have 3 on the roster. Banks and OLaughlin both have the size to move to DE. We need DL help way more than we do TE and with 2 in that class this may be an option for one of them as Haskins (SO) looks like he’s a solid #2 now and could be the #1 for 2 years after Wesco leaves. Also would allow us to offer Strange who states he will commit to a school that offers him as a TE.
There is no way I would move either Banks or O’Laughlin, given the brief looks we had at them before they got hurt. Banks had one of the most acrobatic catches we saw, and O’Laughlin is a pass catching threat whose potential I really love.
Haskins will get more snaps, it was just the low snap count totals that kept his numbers down vs. Tennessee. Holgorsen said that flat out on Tuesday.
That might affect Strange and his scholarship offer a little, but there’s still time for him to be offered. And if he isn’t, then that means either WVU is happy with the TE picture for next year, or that they like Strange as a DE better.
