    Wow, boy you couldn’t have been more wrong if you tried too. He’s fully qualified NOW and can play THIS year. Yep, eat crow on that guess ;)

    Agreed there. Rivals was the ONLY recruiting site that had him as a 5.7 3 star. Everyone else had him as a high 4 star.

    Why is that? Rivals repeatably seems to frequently have our recruits ranked lower than anyone else.

    Now Maurice Washington will be a prime example of what Duval and Ellis can do together. Said he's presently down to 170 lbs. from his normal 190 lbs. But regardless he's planning to be on the first plane out of California to Lincoln per the OWH. Coach Held told him now it's time to ball.

    You got me brotha, it always seems Rivals likes to drop ranks on our commits, that’s for sure.

    He's going to be far behind the other backs in terms of strength and conditioning. Hopefully he won't be another Jordan Stevenson.

    Hey Don’t jinx the pour guy. He’s already busted his ass to make sure he makes it and plays this year. ;)

    I think it sort of depends on the kid. If he is physically ready, they might give him some reps this year, but it might be better for him to redshirt and get acclimated to a new place first. Not sure I'd want to saddle him with all sorts of pressure right off the bat. Really stoked that he made it. He could be a very special player.

    I wonder how much he'll practice vs. working out to get into game shape. I imagine we'll see him on the field at some point this year, given the new redshirt rule, but I think it might not be until late October or early November.

    He's a true freshman, it's not like he needs to be in shape to get 30 touches a game. It will have more to do with him knowing the playbook and being lined up correctly and nailing his assignment than his endurance.

    Probably both, it depends on the player. In Washington's case, I think you play him early and see if he can be a special player for us right away. If he's down the depth chart a ways then you red shirt him the rest of the year.

    For guys who need some development, like a lot of linemen who need to get bigger and stronger or a guy who has switched positions from high school, you probably wait to use him until the end of the year.

    He can still play 4 games no matter what. We will get to see what he can do, and if it is worth the redshirt. I love this new rule

    Yeah, hopefully he's ready to go within a short period of time. Would like to see him in before conference play starts to see what he's got. If he's better than the rest, feed him all year long.
