Camp Notebook

West Virginia's individual football camp got underway on Sunday with several attendees of note on hand.

With at least 400 campers signing up for WVU's individual football camp, the Towers lobby ont he Evansdale campus was a busy place on Sunday afternoon. Although most of the players going through the registration process aren't going to be Division I material, there were a handful of campers that were getting more than the once-over from the Mountaineer coaching staff.

Two players that West Virginia is targeting made the trip from Florida to check out WVU. Offensive lineman Jeremy Baker and wide receiver/defensive back Brandon Heath both made the lengthy trek to check out WVU's program and get in some work. Baker, who also attended last year's camp, is a big lineman who doesn't have the most striking physique, but is a player that gets the job done on the field where it matters. Heath, who is a two-way prospect that has been offerend by numerous schools, is very interested in WVU and has them in his top three at the moment.

  • Again working the camp is former WVU quarterback JaJuan Seider. Seider, who coached incoming Mountaineer freshmen Jarrett Brown and Jetavious Best at Palm Beach Lakes (Fla.) High School last year, is now coaching at his high school alma mater, Belle Glades Central.

  • Two other Mountaineer greats were also in attendance at the camp. Kicker Paul Woodside was spotted with a group of players, and looked as if he could step right back into a Mountaineer uniform. The second alumnus on hand goes back a bit further, but was nonetheless just as special. Hall of Famer Sam Huff, who now does color on broadcasts of Washington Redskins games, brought his grandson over for the camp. The grandson, Bob, plays for Northwest High School, alma mater of incoming WVU freshman wide receiver Darren Brownlee.

  • More family affairs were also in evidence, as the younger brothers of several current Mountaineer players were in attendance. Patrick White, Jahmile Addae and Sammy Morrone all have siblings in attendance this week.

  • Another intriguing prospect on hand was Andre' Henderson of Lexington Christian Academy in Kentucky. The tall Henderson was in town for just one day, but his height (6-5) and big hands certainly made him stand out among the many campers. He could be a wide receiver or tight end, and after a solid combine showing will make two or three camp appearances this summer.

  • Finally, one rising senior who did not participate in the camp, but who was in attendance for a recruiting visit, was offensive lineman Jarrod Holt of Clearwater High School in Clearwater, Fla. The mobile and aggressive Holt has close to two dozen offers, and would be a great start for the anticipated group of four blockers that are expected to be a part of this year's class.
