Spring camp has finally arrived for the West Virginia University Mountaineers. Head Coach Neal Brown spoke to the media on Monday afternoon to share updates on the program as they begin preparations for the 2023 season.

One of the talking points for Brown was changes to the roster. With the receivers room set to be thin due to the departures of Sam James, Kaden Prather, and Bryce Ford-Wheaton, Brown deemed it appropriate that their be changes made to add depth to the position.

According to Brown, safety Davis Mallinger will be making the transition to receiver this spring, despite being out for the majority of camp due to injury.

Mallinger saw his first extended playing time in 2022, appearing in eight games while tallying 26 tackles and 2 sacks. The Florida native also played receiver in high school, so he will not be making the move lacking experience entirely. Though he has not appeared at receiver in a college game, the process will likely be a lot smoother than many will expect.
