Former QBs Making Position Switches

Here's two quick but good reads on the common occurrence of a player needed to learn a new position when he goes to college. Former All-Met QB Ike Whitaker of Northwest is taking reps at wide receiver during Virginia Tech's practices.

Also, Torrey Smith played quarterback at Stafford High, but now he's a receiver at Maryland, which recruited him to play that position. The biggest difference in the positions? All of the running.

"That's the first thing I realized," he said yesterday with a smile. "I used to get mad at receivers for jogging back to the huddle. A couple of times [in summer workouts], I caught myself doing the same thing."
