West Virginia opened the summer camp season Saturday morning with roughly around 90-campers in attendance looking to show their skills in front of the Mountaineer coaching staff under overcast skies.
Detroit (Mich.) Martin Luther King athlete Avonte Maddox was awarded MVP of the event and faired very well during the one-on-one portion of the camp. Maddox is great out of his back pedal and although is undersized, uses his body well against wide receivers.
The 5-foot-9, 165-pounder appears smaller than his listed size, but was one of the fastest prospects in attendance and displayed great break on the football when it was in the air intercepting one pass. Maddox also took a turn at wide receiver and faired just as well there breaking the ankles of the defender in front of him and getting open down the field.
A group from Massillon (Oh.) Washington made the trek up to Morgantown and some of them stood including Marcus Whitfield who worked out at wide receiver during the day and impressed with how fluid he was running past defenders in the one-on-one sessions while showing well in the agility drills.
A pair of offensive lineman from the school in Nathaniel Devers and Chase Lash. Both impressed during the one-on-ones and did a good job against the crop of defensive lineman. Devers is a three-star prospect that is high on the Mountaineers and had been looking to earn an offer.
Finally from the Massilion group, tight end Beau Huffman impressed with his speed and versatility as a tight end or h-back. A former top SPARQ high scorer, Huffman moves like a wide receiver but has the frame to add weight once he gets into a college weight program.
Belle Glades (Fla.) Glades Cental 2015 offensive lineman Jashaun Seider, the brother of West Virginia running backs coach JaJuan, worked out at the camp and while he still needs to fill out had some good moments throughout the day as well. Seider is expected to stay throughout the weekend in Morgantown.
Monroeville (Pa.) Gateway wide receiver Ricky Rogers was in attendance at the camp, but did not participate. The West Virginia commitment spent most of his time talking with wide receivers coach Lonnie Galloway or the various other assistants while passing a football on the sidelines.
Rogers is no stranger to Morgantown and has been on numerous unofficial visits since he first committed to the Mountaineers.
