Freshman Focus This will be a weekly report done by me on the Freshman making impacts in the OFFL West this season. Each week i will talk about each freshman and his stats and how he is doing on his first year in campus. If you would like to send videos to me of your freshman making big plays i will use them in my weekly reports. At the end of the season I will be handing out a freshman of the year award. For the first report i will talk about some potential players who may make an impact this season. PreSeason Freshman Focus Report USC: - RS Freshman CB Kelvin Harris 88 OVR: Kelvin finds himself starting this year and the CB position and hopes to mature into a shutdown corner with his 93 speed. VA Tech: - Freshman SS Chase Joseph 82 OVR: Chase comes to VA Tech number 1 on the depth chart. He will have to step his game up instantly being throwing into a starting secondary as a freshman. Texas Tech: - Freshman LG Terry Frederick 81 OVR: Terry finds himself starting on the left side of line his first year on campus. He is a huge prospect (6'7 321) and looks to make an instant impact in the trenches. - Freshman SS Tony Harris 82 OVR: Tony is the second freshman on Tech finding himself in the starting lineup from day one. He looks to be a head hunter with his 91 power hit rating. Texas: - Freshman FB Derrick Coleman 86 OVR: Derrick looks to be the highest rated freshman fullback in the nation and will be starting day one in the texas backfield. - RS Freshman LT Travis Richardson 94 OVR: This guy is a beast on the Oline and already an all american without seeing one snap on the field. He should be anchoring the Texas line for years to come. Penn St: - Freshman SS Victor Williams 82 OVR: Another SS taking the field day one is Victor Williams in the PSU secondary. More of a combo safety, he looks to also lead the defending champ defense to another great season. Oregon: - Freshman ROLB Cory Jackson 81 OVR: Linebacker Cory will be holding down the right side of the Duck defense from the get go. He has decent speed and hopes to rack up the tackles this season. Oklahoma: - Freshman K/P Brett Watkins 75 OVR: Brett comes to Norman as a freshman taking on both duties in the special teams area. He will be punting and kicking and hopes not make too many freshman mistakes. A huge load for a young student athlete. Ohio St: - Freshman QB Aaron Rhoden 85 OVR: Perhaps the biggest shoes to fill this year, Aaron has a huge task in front of him starting at one of the biggest programs in the nation his first season. He will have to limit his mistakes or could find him self on the bench fast. - Freshman WR John James 85 OVR: One of the most highly recruited 5 stars last season, John is a lightning WR who will be starting at the slot position this season. He hopes to make an immediate impact. My early favorite for freshman of the year. Miami: - RS Freshman Arthur Nixon 82 OVR: Arthur comes to Miami after his red shirt season to start at nickelback for the Canes. Let's see if he can hold down that position in the secondary. Florida St: - RS Freshman C Robbie Gaston 84 OVR: Robbie has a huge task of anchoring a very young line with 2 other freshman starters. He will be the leader of the line and will be forced to play on his P's and Q's. A look ahead.... Next week we take a look at how our OFFL West freshman fared in their first games on campus.
