    Has Pompey Qualified Yet?

    Does anyone know if Quinton Pompey has qualified (looking at you Chris)? Would be a big addition to the team.

    I would assume you'll find that out once the HS school year is over.

    He is just as big and strong, if not bigger and stronger than the guys already in the program. So I'd think he definitely has a chance.

    Re: Has Pompey Qualified Yet?

    It would be awesome if Pompey was good enough to be a four year starter here... but unless hes clearly a top three DT on our roster I say RS him. I think it could come down to how good Henry is.

    Three? If the coaches are hoping for a five man DE rotation, why wouldn't they be hoping for a five man DT rotation?

    In response to the OP, obviously Pompey's final grades won't be known until the end of the school year--as I understand, it's his GPA that's an issue, not his SAT?ACT--so it isn't as if a test scor will roll in and suddenly make him qualified.

    Given the way the Clearinghouse can work, I could see him not being cleared before August--maybe even beofre school starts.

    Re: Has Pompey Qualified Yet?

    Depends on Simon. If he is a viable option then probably a redshirt unless he is something more than I expect. If he's better than Simon, then probably no redshirt. Also keep in mind that he has to stay in shape for perhaps a whole summer on his own. I'm not saying he won't but freshmen have come in out of shape before. I remember when the number one DT in the nation walked into Michigan. It wasn't good and he redshirted. Like I said, he was the number one DT so don't be surprised if Pompey isn't immediately a contributor.

    Re: Has Pompey Qualified Yet?

    I was under the impression they wanted a four man DT rotation. That is why I said I think it depends on Henry. But if hes not a big improvement his freshman year I say RS him so he can keep getting better and let the upperclassman have the year. I have no doubt in a few years he will be one of the best DT's we've had in awhile regardless, but that doesn't mean hes ready to be one of our best guys right off the bat.

    He has qualified for a new credit card with at least $300 in credit.

    Re: Has Pompey Qualified Yet?

    Alot depends on how well his knee is healing. Recovery time on meniscus surgery is unpredictable.

    I think not. That is why Henry Simon was brought in. RS him and use Jensen, who is coming off a RS year.
