MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Running back Andrew Buie has re-enrolled at West Virginia University after leaving the program prior to last season, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Mountaineer Head Football Coach Dana Holgorsen said, back in August, Buie would redshirt for the season and spend the semester back home in Florida.
Buie had been WVU’s leading rusher with 851 yards in 2012. He had fallen behind senior Charles Simms, freshman Wendell Smallwood and juco transfer Dreamius Smith on the depth chart.
The 5-9, 190 pound Buie will be a junior in 2014. He will compete for playing time this spring with Smallwood, Smith, Dustin Garrison and Pitt transfer Rushel Shell.
