San Antonio, Texas -- It was a tale of two practices as the West decided to go with an eleven-on-eleven scrimmage while the East took a light day in shorts and special teams.

West Notebook

  • Herman Boone and Bill Yoast were at the West practice this morning, giving some words of encouragemen to the West team. They spoke for approximately ten minutes each, getting some laughs out of the players, as well as their undivided attention. Oklahoma State, Texas A&M and Kansas State were the schools that had coaches watching the West team Wednesday.

  • QB - Mustain was on fire in the morning practice. Definitely looked the best of the three, leading his team to a touchdown on a perfect strike to Ken Beasley over solid coverage by Taylor Mays. Snead hasn't let up either, but it's that drive by Mustain that might have given him a slight edge.

  • RB - Michael Goodson left the field at the end of the afternoon practice with his ankle wrapped in ice, but it didn't look like it was anything serious. Stafon Johnson spent the entire practice with the DB's. Emmanuel Moody made a couple of very nice runs during the afternoon scrimmage segment, which was his best practice of the week.

  • TE - Reuland has the ability to separate and be effective in both short and medium-range passes. Adam James has really surprised a lot of people and has hung tight with Konrad pass-for-pass.

  • WR - Beasley once again nice footwork, looked good all afternoon. Tennell looked good in morning. In afternoon, the defensive backs took it to them a little bit more.

  • OL - Chris Stewart had his best practice so far this week in the morning, accounting for five 'wins' in the daily OL/DL 'one-on-one' battle. Bartley Webb took a step back, as Butch Lewis had his way with the Notre Dame commit from Arkansas.

  • DL - Lewis clearly stepped up, as Eddie Jones missed the morning session to take part in the media day activities at the Alamodome. He's a big, rangy, quick prospect that consistently ate up the tackles he went up against in the morning session.

  • LB - Kindle and Bradford stood out again. Kindle continues to make plays, and LB Allen Bradford made a great play in the scrimmage, running down Terrance Austin as Austin looked to be breaking for a TD run.

  • DB - Forced some turnovers from the west QB's, something hadn't seen before until this afternoon. Devin Ross' game has picked up dramatically. His pick-six in the afternoon session was a beauty. Jai Eugene and Perrish Cox also had very solid efforts. Stafon Johnson, who practiced with the DB's on Tuesday morning before moving to running back in the afternoon, spent both sessions on Wednesday with the DB's playing safety.

  • P Kyle Petersen, who had a noticeable limp this morning, sat on the sidelines with an ice packed on his ankle.
