INCOMING FRESHMAN

What incoming freshman are you looking forward to seeing?

I expect Jourdan Townsend, Noley Miller and Quincy Watson to be year one contributors. I say this partly because of their talent and partly because of the positions they play.

Jourdan Towson (WR) is one of our higher rated incoming frehman. In Noley Miller a see a guy that will eventually be used in a lot of different ways. And Quincy Watson looks like a combination of speed and power.

I expect a lot of people might pick Jourdan Townsend. But, for me #1 Quincy Watson, #2 Noley Miller and #3 Jourdan Townsend are the guys I am looking forward to watching them progress.

All good choices. I’d add Nance and Walker to the list I’m looking forward to seeing.

Ryan Cole will be an impact freshman this season.

In a couple of weeks the transfer situation will be settled and the roster situation clearer. Watson will surely be red shirted with the arrival of Knight.

For me its:

R Coe
J Townsend
N Coomer
A Nance
N Miller
D Walker

I agree with HZ that the goal for Watson will most likely be to RS unless there is an injury creating playing time for him. I think either Nance or Coomer will break through on the DL for playing time with them trying to RS the 2nd one. Coe, Townsend and Miller are obvious talents and depending on how he does on Special teams and early on, Dan Walker could help in the back.

No mention of the big kid out of Dover? I know it's unusual for a FR to make it in on the OL but it's not unheard of and our OL has not been stellar for some time. Bradly Anywanu, 6'3", 300 lb.

I like the linemen mentioned but it will be difficult, except for a rash of injuries, for a big man to see much playing time. I would expect a number of true freshman to play in the minimum 4 games.

my thoughts exactly. That 4 game rule really is a blessing esp. at the FCS level to increase depth and see how the probable redshirts play in the arena. Some may work their way into DR removing the red covering.

I can't make any predictions. Video is fine, but.... Clearly this appears to be a very talented group. It is exciting to hope a few of our newcomers can really produce, and I think a couple will. Transfers will help determine the outcome of filling a few major needs.

All linemen should be the size of polar bears. That's my measuring stick. LOL.

The four game rule for RS FR is an improvement, but I prefer the five years to play five years proposal that was defeated. The four game rule makes it difficult to manage FR who can contribute. For example, what if you play a FR for four games, he proves to be a contributor, and then you have the prospect of a playoff run. Do you play that FR and burn his redshirt year or sit him down to preserve his RS?

So here we are about 10 days out from the start of the season thought it would be a good time to re-visit this thread

where do our True Freshman stack up now?

I would think that Townsend and Miller are going to get looks at WR, and why not.... they can play 4 games for free...

Townsend looks like he was used alot on running plays in HS, kind of smallish but water bug type runner, let's see him on opening night on a reverse or a quick hit screen play and let him run one back to the house.....

What True Freshman are expected to play right away, if any?

Carrib- Nothing much has changed. Coe is potentially an all timer as a kicker and we may indeed see a 60 yarder from this guy ! But, Pritchard & Roth are super solid so it's going to be a coaching decision as to who fits where & when.

Miller & Townsend have been working with the 3's and getting comfortable. Probably see 4 games if all goes well but they are just average at this point.

Watson is as good as any of the frosh but can't play unless our RB's get wiped out.

I suggest you focus on the current depth chart as there are plenty of guys that will ramp up their contributions this season.

You like fast WR's - Coleman should have a break out , I hope.

the practice observations and work that goes into the depth chart is very much appreciated

In case anyone might not see the depth chart, go the roster page and there is a tab to link to the depth chart...

The depth chart has Townsend and Haverstorm on second team WR, will be interesting to see who the 4th WR is

The #4 will be Haverstrom or Amachi I'm sure. Both have sprinter speed.

When I watched film of Coe I posted he will be our starting place kicker...He not only has a big leg, he also generates ball revolution..The more the revolution the less likely windy conditions will change trajectory of ball...

Don't be surprised Joe if they don't try and RS him since we have the very capable Senior Roth. He can play 4 games obviously but depending on how close they are I'd try and get the max outta Coe. I have seen him in practice and as I've told you, the ball booms off his foot
