Despite the losses to graduation, three receivers expected to see playing time are FBS transfers. Junior Adrian Coxson, a transfer from Maryland, used 2012 to adjust to the program. According to head coach Chuck Priore, Coxson had a great spring and could develop as one of the team's long ball threats. Senior Malcolm Eugene, who sat out last year after transferring from Temple, is someone Priore definitely will count on this season. Eugene has shown the ability to make the big plays.
Junior Jahrie Level, a transfer from Idaho, was one of the Vandals' top receivers last year. Level caught 46 passes for 538 yards and two touchdowns, including a TD against LSU. According to Priore, Level adds a lot of experience to an inexperienced group. Senior Devante Wheeler, who moved to receiver after two years as a defensive back, will be in the mix.
Redshirt freshman Nick Wagner adds depth and could see action in a back-up role.
Not having Norrell and Gush as starters will hurt, but as Coach Priore is quick to point out, the wide receivers expected to play are upperclassmen. Adding Level early in the summer to the mix is a big plus.
