MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen met with the media Monday and discussed how players spent their “off day” on Sunday, which didn’t involve a practice but included plenty of mental reps in group meetings.
With practices about to turn far more physical, Holgorsen warned that the depth chart—which he labeled as “temporary”—is subject to change.
The coach also said he’s tired of discussing targeting, which is unfortunate considering Big 12 officials were scheduled to explain their emphasis in a presentation before Monday afternoon’s practice. Holgorsen probably meant he was more weary of all the preseason speculation about targeting ejections, which he feels is overhyped. He predicted the impact on the game will be “minimal.”
He also updated the statuses of three missing signees, by saying there was no update. Junior college linebacker d’Vante Henry (personal issues) and high school recruits Darrien Howard and Isaac McDonald (awaiting NCAA clearance) remain players in waiting.
