West Virginia searching for stars up front

One of the biggest questions of West Virginia's spring drills is who will step in to help replace the production of Kevin White, a future NFL first-round pick, at receiver.

Yet a more important question could be who will step up along the offensive line for West Virginia.

The Mountaineers' offensive line remains a work in progress, writes Mitch Vingle of The Charleston Gazette. WVU has plenty of depth and competition at the position, with 15 lineman participating in spring drills but it's searching for a star.

"I totally agree with that," Mountaineers offensive line coach Ron Crook said of the thought that WVU's offensive front is star-less. "We have a bunch of hard-nosed guys that come out every day to work and try to get better every day."

Redshirt freshman Yodny Cajuste, who looks poised to earn a starting spot at left tackle, could be the Mountaineers' best chance to have a star on the offensive line in the future, even as early as this fall. The Florida native was impressive during his redshirt season in 2014, sparking a move to guard by last season's starting left tackle Adam Pankey and making him a guy to keep an eye on in 2015.
