Chris Coleman: With Reggie Floyd and Devon Hunter working at rover (per Justin Fuente and Bud Foster at this week’s press conference), Conner needs a place to get quality reps.  The right spot for him this spring is whip, especially with Khalil Ladler missing the spring with an injury.  Conner and JUCO transfer Brion Murray will get the lion’s share of the reps at whip this spring.

I’m not 100% sold that Conner’s long-term future is at whip, but that’s fine.  He’s a young player, and right now it’s most important that he get reps somewhere.  Not necessarily anywhere, but somewhere.  The coaches can evaluate whether or not whip is his best position.  If it isn’t, he can move back to rover at some point, and he and Devon Hunter will form the two-deep there after Reggie Floyd graduates following the 2019 season.

I’m actually more interested in seeing Brion Murray play.  He’s a raw football player.  He played mostly basketball in high school in Delaware, and then walked on at junior college, redshirting in his first year.  He’ll be a redshirt sophomore with relatively little football experience, but I like his athleticism and his willingness to be a big hitter.  I don’t know if he’s quite ready yet, but let’s be honest…just because someone isn’t quite
