here are some quotes on the former All American Bowl and Top 116 player in the country 4 star safety Noa Pola-Gates....I think you’re right. He will be a good one over the next few years.
No doubt, it definitely was. Having him go down in game one literally took out one of our field generals in the secondary. Not only is he a potential NFL draft pick at DB, we had to take guys like D Bootle and Cam Taylor-Britt back there and fill in his spot (so we didn’t have to burn PolaGates and/or Farmers redshirts) and who knows, had he not gone down, maybe Quinton Newsomes redshirt stays intact.That may have been the biggest loss last year- Deontai Williams
