What true freshman will start in the two-deep lineup? 


I do not believe any freshman will start at the beginning of the season.

But, by the middle of the season we could have up to five players on the two-deep roster.

Offense

Dorian Baker
Drew Barker
Darryl Long

Defense

Matt Elam
Mike Edwards
Kendall Randolph

Not freshmen, but new to the program:  Stamps and Flanigan.
The sleeping giant is awakening.

Mike Edwards isn't even on campus yet.  It's highly unlikely he beats out the other guys and makes the 2 deep unless we have several injuries in the secondary.

Re: What true freshman will start in the two-deep lineup? 


I have answered your question based on needs and not on my personal opinion of talent. For example, Stanley "Boom" Williams might be the best player in this class but also plays at our deepest position.

I did not include JUCOS because it should be assumed that they will start or play immediately. That is why you bring in JUCOS.

We obviously need help at WR and LB with our incoming class.

Offense
1. D. Baker - Most underrated player in this class. Has size, adequate speed, and great hands.
2. TV Williams - Coaches raved about his speed and quickness in the spring. Can he avoid jams at LOS?
3. G. Johnson - Smooth looking prospect.
4. T. Snodgrass - Raw but very talented. Spring showed his need for polish with routes and separation.
5. D. Long - Great receiving prospect at TE. May be too good to let him develop into adequate blocker.

Defense
1. D. Hendrix - Looked good in spring. Should be better with summer and fall practice.
2. N. Firios - Natural tackling machine. Wildcard at a need position.
3. K. Walker - We need linebackers.
4. M. Edwards - Great talent. Upgrade at safety. AJ Stamps should help save his redshirt.
5. M. Elam - Hopefully will redshirt, but may be better than those in front of him. Can't teach size and quick feet.

Boom Williams is unlikely to be in the two deep at RB, but I think he could get onto the field in a number of ways. If he transitions well to the college game, he too could be a playmaker when he gets the ball in space.

It is hard to predict at this point since you have some returning players who did not participate this spring, you had some freshmen who enrolled early and then you have some talented new guys who are working out this summer. There are also team needs including depth at certain spots. There will be more in the 2-deep later in the season depending on how the season goes. The two deep doesn't matter when you're discussing WR's because a lot will play. Boom is a good example. I honestly don't see how you can keep him off the field and yet it is up to him to be in top condition and learn the playbook, learn to block some, etc. Basic question, can some of these guys help to win games?

Also saw on 24/7 that Flannigan has been cleared to play but NCAA rules won't let him report until early August. Sometimes I feel these "gatekeepers" are totally useless when it comes to dealing with young people trying to get on with their lives.

Wouldn't it be nice if, others than the JUCO's, they could all be red-shirted!!
