Set for Action

West Virginia linebacker Najee Goode has seen action at all three linebacker spots during his West Virginia career, and that experience has positioned him as a valuable member of the corps entering the 2010 season.

Najee Goode filled in for the injured J.T. Thomas at the end of last week's spring football action, and he believes that the experience he has at every linebacker spot in WVU's 3-3 defense has prepared him for play this year.

Although the more mobile Goode is best suited for the weakside or middle linebacker spots, he believes he can also play the strong side if necessary. This versatility puts him in a position to grab more playing time in what is becoming a very competitive battle at linebacker. In addition to Thomas, starters Pat Lazear and Anthony Leonard, along with rising talents Branko Busick and Tyler Anderson figure to give the Mountaineers the depth they have been searching for in assistant coach Jeff Casteel's crew.

In this interview, Goode discusses his versatility as well as the progress of the linebacking corps over the spring.
