    Will there be any true freshman playing this fall?

    Anybody have any insight into guys that the coaches think can contribute right away?

    I honestly don't think so. Not that we aren't getting a talented class, we just have a lot more depth everywhere to the point that it wouldn't be worth it to play them.

    EDIT: The kicker will play. I'm not sure that is what he was talking about though.

    Perhaps Big Dawg, but that may just be internet legendry. He'd have to be a real stud, or we'd have to have injuries on the line, for him to get some PT.

    Re: Will there be any true freshman playing this fall?

    I have no inside information, but I think one of the corners has a chance to come in and be in the 2 deep at corner. If that's the case, it wouldn't surprise me to see one of them play for similar reasons as Irving last year.

    We didnt play many true freshmen next year and it sounds like we have even more depth this year so I would be suprised to see too many playing. Except for the kicker coming in.

    Oh, and the fact that none of them will play is GREAT. Until we start bringing in 5* guys, they should all redshirt....and after a few years we will have a 2-deep full of RS juniors and RS seniors, and that will be a very, very good thing.

    Re: Will there be any true freshman playing this fall?

    Besides Cole Netten I don't see anyone playing -barring camp or early season injuries, except the Juco guys and small chance of a Pavlenko, Rogers, or White playing mainly for special teams.

    This and maybe West, depending on our WR situation. Williams maybe too if he is healthier and we have injuries on the Oline. Can't imagine anyone else given the depth we have at most positions.

    I hope West can RS. I've heard he has talent, and if we can get a few more lbs on the guy, he could be a real beast of a WR. I hope he can spend his first 12 months here in the weight room.

    Is there a spring depth chart? Can't seem to find it.

    Re: Will there be any true freshman playing this fall?

    Maybe a QB? I do not like our QB situation at this point. I think the D can be pretty solid but having a bottom 1/3 offense again in the Big 12 will not help things. Look back over the last decade and ISU has been pretty much in the bottom of the league for offense.

    I doubt he plays with 3 redshirt freshmen, Tiller, Lenz, Gary, Horne, West, & Young playing.
