The "A" back said he's now 5-foot-9 and 191 pounds. We'll see if he again starts the season No. 1 at the position.
"Honestly, I'm just trying to work hard and show Coach [Dana Holgorsen] what I'm capable of and what I can do," Buie said. "The decision will be his whether I play or not."
Those looking for Mountain State products within WVU's team know of Parkersburg's Josh Jenkins, an offensive guard. Also, Bridgeport's Wes Tonkery and Morgantown's Ryan Nehlen have had some success.
This season, however, you might also keep an eye on another Morgantown product: Tyler Anderson.
WVU's coaches have been moving players around along the defensive front to find the right fit. If you look at the depth chart, J.B. Lageman is No. 1 at tackle, while Jorge Wright is listed first at nose tackle and Will Clarke tops at end.
But lately Clarke has been at tackle. Jewone Snow, out this spring because of injuries, might be an end.
Anderson, though, seems to working his way into playing time along that line and at the Buck linebacker spot. The redshirt junior has been fighting lightning fast Josh Francis at Buck. But . . .
"Sometimes I'll be at end," Anderson said Tuesday night. "All of today and last week, I was at end and Josh was at Buck."
Chidoziem Ezemma, a 6-2 redshirt junior, is also at end.
"Me and Dozey," Anderson said. "That's pretty much it. Last week, Will was at the tackle and Jorge was at the nose. Shaq [Petteway] got healthy so we've been experimenting with him, too."
The Morgantown High product is 6-2, 244 pounds.
"I like to be physical," Anderson said. "I have speed. I haven't had the greatest of opportunities, but I think this year I have that."
We'll see if he takes advantage.
