A quick look at the latest news out of the Big East from around the Rivals.com Network:
Big East Practice Reports
Cincinnati: Senior running back Matt Daniels will take a medical redshirt this season after tearing the ACL in his right knee Tuesday. While he was not expected to be the Bearcats every-down back this year, the team was going to look to him to provide speed and a change of pace at the position.
Connecticut: Sophomore D.J. Hernandez has been named the team's starting quarterback. Junior Ryan Henegan was expected to be the starting middle linebacker this season but has not recovered from a hamstring injury so it appears fellow junior Julius Williams will fill that position. Receiver Larry Taylor continues to look good coming back from the knee injury that sidelined him much of last season.
Louisville: This year's group of wide receivers looks to be the deepest coach Bobby Petrino has had at Louisville. The go-to-guy will be 6-6 Mario Urrutia Across from him is the speedy Harry Douglas. Behind the two starters there is a wealth of talent, including three transfers. Chris Vaughn leads that group. Freshman Scott Long looked good in camp but will redshirt.
Pittsburgh: Lineman Craig Bokor made the move to offense this week. The redshirt freshman, who had been playing defensive tackle, will provide much-needed depth at guard. Redshirt freshman receiver Oderick Turner appears to have earned the starting split end spot.
Syracuse:Jameel McClain is making the switch from linebacker to defensive end. Joe Fields' transition from quarterback to safety has gone well. He is very aggressive and physical for a former quarterback. He is competing with A.J. Brown to start at free safety.
West Virginia: Freshman Guesly Dervil was ruled ineligible by the NCAA Clearinghouse. Dervil will retake a standardized test to qualify for next season. Senior Damien Crissey is making a push to get his old left tackle position back. If he fails to do so, he could end up somewhere else along the line as most of the starting spots are not yet settled.
