Now that we are in season 2, are there any freshman on your team that could make an early impact?
Baylor is in the midst of a youth movement!
HB Troy Foster is a load at 6-3, 231 pounds. This true frosh is the #2 HB and will get plenty of looks when Seastrunk is tired.
WR Robbie Rhodes sits at #2 on the depth chart. This RS freshman is a solid player who the coaches expect to catch a lot of balls
OLB Andre Vincent is a true frosh starter on defense. This dynamic athlete will need to play like an upperclassmen if Baylor wants a shot at a Big XII title
SS Kenny Anderson is another true freshman starter on D. Anderson is a solid player who the team expects to make big plays right away
I don't think I having Freshman starting this year besides my FB. I'll take a closer look and edit this with any players contributing
USC has a few freshmen expected to get significant playing time...
HB Ty Isaacs - a physical freak at 6'2" 224lbs with 95 speed, 95 agility/acceleration, he will split time with senior DJ Morgan to start but Coach Dru has a man crush on the kid so if he plays well he may end up starting.
G Jacob Moore - competing for one of the starting spots but likely the swing G.
SS John Smith - the team is tinkering with the idea of running a hybrid scheme. If they do this true fresh will be starting.
It's like a disease in AM. I feel dirty enough running a spread offense
I figure if its allowed......
C - Jason Holmes. This guy sucks, 76 pass block, 75 run block, 70 impact block. We figured putting him in the middle of the line would be best as he won't screw up too much in pass protection, and won't be used as a pulling guard.
CB - Michael Monroe. We're very lucky we got him, because our defensive backfield would've been a mess. 79 overall with great play recognition and zone cover skills.
WR - Jon Gonzalez - The heir slot receiver.
DB - Andrew Chase
DB - Donald Lawrence
FS - John Burke
SMU - Freshmen to Watch
SS Courtney Johnson
Courtney is a former High School All-American basketball player, who chose SMU in large part due to being allowed to play both sports. He will be taking over the starting #1 SS position in SMU's 4-2-5. Courtney is a good athlete (88 SPD, 86 AGI/ACC) with great range (76 ZCV, 89 Jmp) and is a surprisingly good tackler for his size (82 TAK, 76 HP). He will need to improve the mental aspects of the position, but his playmaking ability is too much to keep him off the field.
WRs Dusty Turner & Kevin Thomas
Dusty and Kevin come in as replacements for departed thousand-yard receivers Der'rikk Thompson and Jeremy Johnson. While Dusty brings great athleticism (93 SPD, 90 ACC) and outstanding route running (89 RtR) to the equation, Kevin catches just about everything thrown his way (82 CTH, 80 CIT, 80 RtR). With SMU's offense, look for both to see the field and get plenty of chances to shine.
All my guys were freshmen last year... so...
