WR Ivan McCartney returns to West Virginia

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Wide receiver Ivan McCartney is returning to West Virginia's roster six months after leaving the team.

West Virginia football spokesman Mike Montoro on Monday confirmed McCartney's return.

McCartney left for personal reasons last November after making just nine catches for 112 yards in his junior season. McCartney was third on the team in 2011 with 49 catches for 585 yards.

He quit a week after freshman wide receiver Travares Copeland left the team. Both had struggled to get playing time behind Tavon Austin, Stedman Bailey and J.D. Woods.
