Greg Isdaner Going Pro

Well, this is a bit of a kick in the shin. Greg Isdaner has decided to enter the draft and pass on his senior season.

Stanchek was an All-American last year and Isdaner was first-team all-conference. He didn't make an all-conference team this past season, though WVU finished in the top 15 in rushing yards again.

"He has been an integral part of our success, and I want to thank him for everything he has done for Mountaineer football," Coach Bill Stewart said.

WVU also loses Stanchek, center Mike Dent and right guard Jake Figner to graduation.

So basically, we have one starter returning on the offensive line. Awesome!! We'll find out what we have as far as depth goes. Josh Jenkins and Gino Gradowski were both highly recruited, but have yet to see significant game experience. Eric Jobe filled in for Mike Dent at center after the UConn game. Capers returns at tackle, although he is listed on BGN as a senior. I should really pay more attention to stuff like that. The thing that scares me is that behind the starting five, whom ever that might be, there isn't much depth.

But hey, good luck Greg. Maybe you'll get to block for Slaton again.

For not reason...
