As far as QB, Croons is graduating which leaves us only two on the roster. So look to see at least one if not two QB picked up.

Btw. Did Nicastro graduate. For some reason I thought he had a year of eigibility left

He may have gotten a sixth year of eligibility after the ACL but I assumed he was graduating. Same situation as Nic Ketter and Jack Forster. That's part of the challenge of redshirting freshmen - if they also get a medical redshirt later in their career, then you're asking them to play a sixth year and that's a lot to ask. That said, I assume that none of those three are returning but they could have all gotten a sixth year - don't know.

 

 

As I understand it sixth years usually only occur when there are two injury-related redshirts...not when there is a medical redshirt and a developmental redshirt.

If you redshirt freshman year for development you get four years of eligibility; if you get hurt it is tough luck...unless it is a particularly lengthy injury.

the size of the OL guys is something that makes me happy. It's clear the program is trying to build the lines up...they got what they want to work with at WR and RB.

Walker seems to be a nice young man and a great addition. Also throws the shot. Some nice spin moves and a good motor. Plays at a high level school in a recruit hotbed of a state. What's not to like?

 

I too am encouraged regarding the size and talent level. I found a site that reported Walker had 4 offers, including one from Air Force. Anybody know how many scholarships we had to fill this year?

 

JMU's QB is a transfer from Lackawanna, same as our three recent newbies.

I like the size we're picking up. Hopefully some of these LB's are quick/speedy too.

You had me all confused! His name is Antoine White. Looks to be a great pickup. Another article reports that he's just gotten caught up in a numbers game and getting decreased playing time. So all of a sudden we have some serious size and talent in the middle. Edited by jimbo
