London said that redshirt freshman Wil Wahee, who was in competition for the No. 4 corner spot, has suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament and presumably is lost for the season. That will cost Wahee a year’s eligibility since he already was redshirted.
London said that sophomore center Ross Burbank has moved up to the first string. Redshirt freshman Jackson Matteo, who had been atop the depth chart, took part in Saturday’s scrimmage but earlier had lost practice time due to injury.
Fifth-year senior Billy Skrobacz, a walk-on who was awarded a scholarship before the season, appears to have taken the lead over true freshman Connor Wingo-Reeves and sophomore Vincent Croce at fullback.
Croce, a converted defensive lineman, had worked at tight end when Jake McGee was out with a stinger but McGee is back working out.
London described sophomore tight end Rob Burns (6-7, 250) as a pleasant surprise after his move from tight end. Burns played a total of four plays last season but had a circus catch Saturday in that scrimmage.
Highlights of that scrimmage are available on London’s twitter site. Here’s the link: vasp.tv/football/1ka4
