West Virginia spring game preview: 5 things to watch

West Virginia Mountaineers football

5. Time to find some cornerbacks

Rasul Douglas came out of nowhere last season to turn in an All-Big 12 performance, along with a second-team All-American performance.

Meantime, seniors Antonio Crawford and Nana Kyeremeh are also gone.

Expect Douglas’ backup last year, Elijah Battle, who played in 11 games last season, and started 3, to step into a starting role. Also, Mike Daniels saw time sparingly last season, but was used on a season-high 14 plays against Miami in the Russell Athletic Bowl. Could his role increase?

A name with high expectations to keep an eye on in the West Virginia spring game is JUCO transfer Hakeem Bailey. He comes from Iowa Western Community College and had 5 interceptions last season on his way to being named NJCAA All-Region 11 First Team.
