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?
