    Is it possible Dauron Williams gets playing time this season?

    I know he is very talented and just judging by his Twitter page, he is cutting everything out of this life to focus on fall camp. I know earlier in the year his goal was to not redshirt and get playing time this year. OL guys usually come in and need that redshirt year to help bulk up but Dauron is already good size for an OL.

    I hope he doesn't play, but if he's the best at any OL position, why not play him

    I think his injury(HS) guarantees a redshirt year. The way the staff has talked about the OL, I hope he wouldn't have been in line for immediate time anyways.

    Of course it's possible. Likely? Perhaps not.

    Of course, I'd guess that if out of Tuftee, Lichtenberg, Gannon, Omoile, Graham and, say, Sam Tautolo and Ben Loth, four or five go down due to injuries, and Shaban Dika doesn't get back, then his chances might be enhanced.

    I don't think Dika is going to be ready, I've seen him around campus less than 2 months ago with a walking boot and crutches and looked like he was really struggling to get around. Granted I'm in no way a doctor.

    I didn't think so either. Especially when CPR was already talking back in the Spring about having him sit out the whole season, then apply for a 6th year down the road after missing two full seasons.

    I hope that he is patient, and takes the year to recover if need be. I think he can be a great four year starter if he does.

    No. We have enough depth in the Oline, it'd be best for the team and for the future of the line if he redshirts this year. which he most likely will

    Re: Is it possible Dauron Williams gets playing time this season?

    I was just looking at some of the Media Day photos, and I don't think there's much of a chance of Duaron playing this year. He looks like he's put on a lot of bad weight this offseason.

    I can't think that the coaches are very happy with him coming in like that? I definately think he's in for a RS year.

    He came to ISU out of shape and has some work to do to take a spot on the line this year. It's not impossible, but less than likely since the he had the injury as well.

    Possible? Of course, anything is. But only with a **** ton of injuries.

    Sounds like he may need the redshirt. I like the idea of him wanting to play, but I hope he is reasonable and doesn't get discouraged by a redshirt year. He seems like a guy who will be a great contributor, even during a redshirt year with the personality he displayed during the recruitment process. If he can really develop his skills, he seems like he could eventually be a multi-year captain-type guy. He just seems like a ring-leader based on what I saw during his recruitment (and during his recruitment of others).
