Despite widespread web reports Friday of his switching his football commitment to Florida from Penn State, Skyler Mornhinweg was still not talking. At least not publicly.

Of the reports about the Hawks quarterback's choosing to play for the Gators, Infante said, "It was more perplexing than anything else. He's had positive conversations with all the schools involved.

Temple football coach Bruce Arians was interviewed here for the vacant Virginia Tech job yesterday. He is believed to be the favorite for the job, and he probably will make a final decision this weekend. Arians met with D. T. Baughman, who will take over as athletic director at Virginia Tech on Jan. 1 but who already has the authority to hire a successor to Bill Dooley. Dooley was bought out as athletic director and coach earlier this month. "There was no offer (from Baughman)

Virginia Tech football coach Frank Beamer probably will not be disciplined for slapping a player on the helmet during the Hokies' 28-7 loss to West Virginia on Wednesday night. "The administration and I agree that this single incident is not reflective of how Frank has conducted business throughout his coaching career," athletic director Jim Weaver said yesterday in a statement. Beamer slapped receiver Ernest Wilford on the sideline during a heated argument. He apologized after the game.

Kevin Jones' sport is football, but last night he had to withstand a fullcourt press. Visiting Jones' home, in Chester, were Penn State coach Joe Paterno and two of his assistants, Fran Ganter and Kenny Jackson. They turned up the pressure and turned it up some more before receiving, in effect, this response: We'll get back to you. Jones, the 6-1, 210-pound stud running back from Cardinal O'Hara High, considered by some the nation's top prospect, remains undecided. He does know he'll be attending one of two schools, Penn State or Virginia Tech.

West Virginia's Brian King intercepted Bryan Randall's pass in the end zone with 12 seconds left as the Mountaineers defeated No. 13 Virginia Tech, 21-18, last night. King's interception defeated coach Frank Beamer's strategy: He went for the win instead of the tie when the Hokies already were well within range of a game-tying field goal. "I don't fault him a bit. We lost this together," Beamer said of Randall, a sophomore. Before that, the Mountaineers (8-3 overall, 5-1 Big East)

Virginia Tech tailback Kevin Jones will be out for 2 to 4 weeks with a strained left hamstring. An MRI exam showed the sophomore, a Cardinal O'Hara High graduate, suffered a "mild to moderate" tear, with damage mostly to the muscle and not the tendons, during the eighth-ranked Hokies' 28-21 loss to No. 22 Pittsburgh on Saturday night. "It's not one of those blowout kind of hamstring injuries that ends your season," team physician P. Gunnar Brolinson said. Jones scored on a 3-yard run on his first carry against Pitt and was injured on his second carry.

When it comes to the preparation necessary to be a standout offensive lineman at the Division I level, Council Rock South's Eric Gallo does not have to go far to find a role model. Justin Pugh, who starred at Council Rock South and Syracuse, recently completed his rookie season as the starting right tackle for the NFL's New York Giants. "I try to play the same way he does," said Gallo, who was a middle-school student when he first met Pugh. "He's physical, aggressive, and he plays with a ton of heart.

HAPPY realignment day! It certainly was for the Atlantic Coast Conference, which welcomed Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Notre Dame to the league yesterday with a celebratory news conference/flag planting in New York City. After commissioner John Swofford welcomed the new teams at a news conference at the NASDAQ stock exchange in Manhattan, he said further expansion isn't on the agenda. "It's not a topic of conversation for us right now," he said. "I would not anticipate it being in the future, but we'll see. I don't predict the future much anymore, I've learned better.

ATLANTIC CITY - Frank Beamer is right. People want to be like Michael Vick. They want his story to ring real, to be about repentance and resolve more than reclamation and reward. "A lot of great players, you don't want to be around them very long," Beamer, Vick's college coach, said at a Maxwell Awards news conference yesterday afternoon. "Well, you want to be around Michael Vick. I mean, you like the guy. And he's for real. He's genuine. And he's a good person who's going to help young people.
