MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - West Virginia University's 12-week summer school session started Monday and four football players enrolled to get a head start on academics and get involved in summer workouts.
Junior college receiver Ronald Carswell, junior college center Stone Underwood and receiver Ivan McCartney, who quit the team in November, but reached a truce with the coaching staff, were each signed up and in classes.
Former Florida State quarterback Clint Trickett was finalizing paperwork Monday afternoon and was to be enrolled soon.
The Mountaineers now have eight first-year players enrolled in classes. Monday's additions join junior college running back Dreamius Smith, junior college receiver Kevin White, high school receiver Dakiel Shorts and high school running back Wendell Smal. They enrolled in January and participated in spring practice.
The tally would be one higher, but freshman quarterback Chavas Rawlins decided last week to transfer so he could play closer to home.
WVU will have more players arrive and enroll soon. The summer session at WVU features one-, three-, six- and 12-week course schedules.
WVU's men's basketball team had no players enroll Monday, but expects its six recruits to enroll in June.
The football team hopes to have the rest of the class arrive without incident, and that includes junior college linebacker Brandon Golson.
Golson, from Georgia Military College, was arrested in January and charged with second-degree burglary, criminal conspiracy, grand larceny, petit larceny and breach of trust, according to a report in the Orangeburg (S.C.) Times & Democrat.
His attorney, Martin Banks, said Monday Golson has been recommended for pre-trial intervention by local law enforcement, the solicitor's office and the victim. Banks said if Golson abides by the conditions of the diversion program across a still undetermined period of time, the charges will be dropped.
"He's well on his way already," Banks said. "Based on where he's at with it now, I foresee no hiccups."
Coach Dana Holgorsen said Sunday there were no issue with Golson's arrival and enrollment.
