New committment for WVU

According to Scout the Mountaineers have increased some depth at running back with the commitment of Glendale Community College running back Zach Hulce. According to the link, Hulce was recruited by San Jose State and TCU, but only WVU made an offer for a schollie. Running back depth is a concern for the upcoming year as Steve Slaton has moved on to the NFL and Ed Collington has moved on to probation (if he's lucky). Noel Devine is slated to be the starter next year, but behind him the depth chart only contains Eddie Davis and Jet Best at running back (combined for 65 career yards). Look for Collington to get a possible reinstatement if he can plead down the charges and stay out of trouble (NOTE--this would be a definite under Rodriguez, not so sure under Stewart). Devine's wingman Jock Sanders may get some more time at running back as well if he can help keep the duo's fist out of other people's faces. Incoming freshman Terrence Kerns will get a look if all the academics work out. Hulce will at the very least provide some depth at the position with some scout team and maybe special teams work in the upcoming year. So there is the wrap up of running backs for next year. One, maybe two injuries away from terrifying.
