MORGANTOWN — o o o o o o
The Mountaineers, who don’t play until Sept. 15 in Washington, D.C., against James Madison, will practice hard today and Thursday with the coaches going out recruiting over the weekend.
“We would’ve gone out (Monday), but it was a holiday,” Holgorsen said. “When we have an off week later in the year, we’ll go out Monday and it’s all local. We’ll hit West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and parts of Maryland and Virginia.
“When we have a couple of days we can get to Texas and get to Florida. We’ll probably send four to Texas and three to Florida. I think Steve (Dunlap) is going to stay local; other than that everybody is going to be on an airplane going somewhere.”
As for Holgorsen, on Friday he will be in Texas and will watch his nephew play in Houston.
“It’s the only time I can go watch him play if I count it as an evaluation. I can only go watch my nephew play one time; that’s the dumbest rule in the world,” he said.
