WVU's Skill Position Talent Talks Offense

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - A pair of skill position talents who will be relied upon heavily in West Virginia's upcoming season -- running back Wendell Smallwood and wideout Jordan Thompson -- discuss their relationship and chemistry with quarterback Skyler Howard.

Smallwood, perhaps the Mountaineers most versatile threat, speaks to quarterback development, the offense as ran by head coach Dana Holgorsen, the team chemistry, bonding and his expectations for being able to finish close games in terms of confidence.

Thompson, first asked to explain his nickname "Squirt," delves deeper into playing with what he terms a "playmaker" in Howard, the extension of plays with a more mobile quarterback, how that affects the mentality as a receiver, and the continual work being put in not only during fall camp physically, but also the mental game of constantly working to get open because of the chances any broken play could go for a score with a scrambler.
